Paloma is a program to manage an SQL database of digital music files, and facilitate their retrieval and playback in interesting ways. It works with music files of any form -- MP3, Ogg Vorbis, MIDI... whatever you've got a player for. Paloma makes it easy to rip your entire CD collection and store it on your hard disk (or a collection of CD-Rs) for instant random access; playlists can then be generated using arbitrary SQL commands.

Release Notes: This version adds support for a Turtle Beach AudioTron device, so that playlists may be sent to a connected AudioTron to play with a single keypress. It also adds support for running Paloma on Windows and Linux machines on the same network sharing the same database, and adds support for playing from a database stored on a collection of removal CD-ROMs.
Release Notes: Any number of your favorite jukebox programs (such as xmms, PyTone, or Tunez) can now be configured so that you can launch them from a playlist window simply by pressing a function key. The program will write the playlist to a .m3u file (or copy the song files to a directory tree, if necessary) and launch your jukebox program of choice to play it.
Release Notes: This version added drag and drop between playlists and can export playlists as .m3u files. There were also several bugfixes.
Release Notes: The 2.0 series represents a major rewrite of the codebase; it is now implemented in Python using wxWidgets (rather than in C++ over plain GTK). This makes the code more broadly portable and easier to install (previous versions had been difficult or impossible for people to compile and install, as the APIs of dependent libraries had changed since Paloma was originally developed).
Release Notes: Support for Gtk-- 1.2.0 was added.
