Just some comments.

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
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!!!)
I'll work on 1), 4) and 7) (ie ALSA and general crashes) as I can't help
with endianness or gorm issues.

I will open other threads if/when I find something useful.
Fine. I suppose 1-4-7 are actually closely related. Do you get errors/warnings when changing songs (even same channels/ratio/endianness)? I get them on x86 too and I guess that won ppc where endianness is involved too, things get worse.

Please send separate patches, it is easier for review! And if you include your name and notice in the Changelog, you'll get the credits too :) (And save me work, since I anyway write ChangeLogs)

Fixed problem which we should confirm are
1) opening/saving playlists
2) object deduplication
Works for me, even if deduplication is only based on file path right now.
Yes, but it is enough, I'd say. Seems to work for me. One drawback is that if you have a default playlist with duplicates, Cynthiune will crash at startup.

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! :)
Maybe I didn't get understand you correctly but in my opinion all these
points shouldn't block a release, unless they make Cynthiune crash. But
all of them would be welcome in a future release of course !
Sorry, I wasn't clear. These were suggestions for new releases :)
