SvOlli's Little Audio Related Thingies

SvOlli's Little Audio Related Thingies, or SLART for short, is a compilation of rather simple programs that are related to audio files: it consists of a player (Partyman), a CD ripper, a tag editor, and some other tools. These programs can communicate with each other via a custom IPC bus, so a newly ripped track can be automatically queued in the player, for example.

    Release Notes: A new build system has been implemented for easier cross-compiling. The interprocess communication bus has been changed from UDP to TCP.

A new application ("Notorious") for installing and browsing a local copy of has been added. The player ("Partyman") can now add new tracks to playlist from the command line even it isn't running. Most applications are now more drag'n'drop-aware and will quit if another instance is running.

        Release Notes: Qt Style Sheet support has been added: now you can change the look and feel of the application in a rather simple way, similar to the Cascating Style Sheets of HTML.

During installation, application menu entries will now be created. Some small bugs have been fixed.
