Still in development but does show some promise.
This is one of the few new sound editors that compiles successfully on my Debian system without requiring a bunch of new-fangled libraries and toolkits that haven't made their way into a stable distro yet. Clearly the program is still in development, but shows some promise.

It is intended to be the "GIMP" of sound editing. That can be both a good thing and a bad thing. GIMP, indeed, has a lot of functionality, but also is not very intituitive for the beginning user. I am afraid GLAME may go the same route. I notice I had to open up a "new project" and import sounds just to edit them. I would have preferred at least having the additional option of a straightforward loading and editing of a single sound file. Also, I did not see an indicator that showed one's position on a sound file during playback. As for selecting a portion of a sound file to edit, a click-and-swipe highlight approach would have been nice, but seemed to be missing.

What do you mean exactly by the dependency list? There is one in the tarball, but of course I could list dependencies in the freshmeat visible description. Btw, "must have" dependencies are guile(-dev) and libxml(-dev), an "if you are going to use this" dependency is on the gnome-libs. For audio in/out support you need either oss, esd or alsa-0.5(!)
