let's try to sum up.. and then I propose a separate mail thread for discussion, proposals fixes.

1) Resetting properties of backends (channels, rate and endianness). Philippe proposes to reopen the device, perhaps it can be reset. Affects 2) in the term that if endianness changes during playing there are troubles. Affected are ALSA for sure, AO perhaps... 2) Endianness. I hope this is mainly sorted out for most backends? I fear only me and Sebastian can check that 3) Shuffle/Repeat. Selecting the Menu-action and the toolbar action do not highlight the same way... 4) Long delays when passing to one song to the other, experienced at least for ALSA. It could be related to 1) since each time I get an exception...
5) Sndio not working at all for me (will retest again tomorrow)
6) Gorm file is bogus, will ask for help.
7) Crashes/memory issues. Yesterday i still got a crash after playing several files (I brought my old debian laptop with Cynthiune to a sound studio and used it as a sound input... it plays quite well!!!)

Fixed problem which we should confirm are
1) opening/saving playlists
2) object deduplication

I'd love to revive the Mac version, but I don't know how to handle dependencies. Even if with just one backend (I was able to compile MP3 library, but not audiofile) to check the code.

We can also add a feature wishlist for the next release, but I want to get this one out soon. For that I want
1) sort out musicbrainz stuff
2) include audiocd support?
3) preference panel for timidity and better handling of it
4) context menus...
5) ID3tag editing (integration with POE... more info about that separately, after the release! :)
