Release Notes: Last.fm support was improved (more functionality). Shoutcast support was improved. Support for NetworkManager, global hotkeys (X11-based, custom, or GNOME-based), and support for generic video playback (file playback, no DVD support, or similar) was added in addition to video podcasts. Bugfixes all around have been made, and responsiveness was improved by using asynchronous networking where possible.

Release Notes: A rewrite of the library backend, reorganization of the UI, improved Last.fm backend and tighter integration of Last.fm within the entire application, enhanced and debugged Podcast backend with newly added support for video podcasts using Gstreamer, initial Jamendo support, and a universal bookmarking system. The stability of the 0.40 series is incomparably higher than the 0.36 versions. The application's usability was also improved to a great degree.

Release Notes: Most changes in this release are fixes of severe bugs all over, and UI/usability improvements. Other changes include multiple downloads for podcast episodes, a "Playlist" component for playing files not in the library, and a universal bookmarking system (working across all playback sources). The Last.fm streaming protocol and Audioscrobbler Protocol 1.2 support was finalized and conforms fully to the specs. As another long-standing user issue, the space-wasting header banner was removed.
