  I've made a pre-release of GNUMP3d v3.0, which I'd appreciate feedback

  I think it contains all the patches and fixes it should.  Get it
 from either CVS or the temporary download location:

  I'm torn on what to do with windows support.  I could rip it all out,
 or leave it untested and unsupported.  Either works for me as I can no
 longer test it.

  As people have no doubt noticed I've not touched the code in a long
 time now, and I think that this release will be the last I make.

  Whether it is the last ever release is a different matter.  Several
 people have made good patches and fixes and I'm prepared to allow
 a *group* of volunteers to take it over after this release if they
 wish to make themselves known.

  I don't want to rule anybody out - since almost anybody is better
 than nobody at all - but I'd trust people who have previously submitted
 patches a lot more than any random "unknowns"...

  My interest in streaming MP3s has partly waned over the past year
 or two - since I work from home and don't have that "office-wide-jukebox"
 thing happening, and partly the goals of this software no longer align
 with what I want myself.

  Nowadays I use (unreleased) software which is superficially related
 to GNUMP3d, but stores all its data in a database and allows ratings,

  The updated plugin code of this release is inspired by that, and also
 by the "toy" release I did here:

  Hmm this mail ended up with me announcing my resignation, rather than
 just pointing to the code and asking for tests.  I'll still be around
 at least for a month or two after the release.

  So .. back to the topic.  Theres a pre-release.  Its available.
  Testing is good.

  Umm thanks.
