Museeks 0.11 is landing, bringing a couple of much needed features. 🚀

Re-orderable playlists

Playlist are now finally re-orderable: you can re-order single or multiple tracks by drag-and-dropping them. Yes, I know, it's a shame it was not here before.

m3u support (import/export)

When importing tracks to the library, Museeks will now scan the directories for existing .m3u files and will create corresponding playlists. It only works with local files (for now).

When creating a playlist from Museeks, you can also export it to a .m3u file by right-clicking the playlist on the sidebar.

note: the files paths in the generated .m3u will be relative, not absolute. This choice was made so you can use the same library from different OS/filesystems (useful if you have your music in the cloud and you sync it on multiple devices).

note 2: tracks present in a .m3u but not present in the library after the files scan will be ignored.

MPRIS support (Linux)

Thanks to the amazing work of @acrisci and @igorer88, Museeks now supports the FreeDesktop's mpris specification. You should see a player indicator in your favorite DE if it supports mpris.

I personally tested this feature on Ubuntu and elementary OS, but please send feedback if you encounter any problems (testing on Linux is hard).

Covers coming from id3 tags are unfortunately not yet supported.

Custom audio output

You can now select a custom audio output device in the Settings -> Audio tab. This can be useful if you have multiple speakers/headphones and you need a per-app configuration for them.
