Cantata 1.4.1 Music Player Released with Updates & Bugfix

Cantata is a feature-rich and user friendly client for Music Player Daemon (MPD). MPD is a background application that can be used to play music. Cantata can be compiled with KDE support, or as a pure Qt4 application. The interface is very configurable – most views can be shown as either a list or tree structure.


Cantata 1.4.1 Updates

  • Update current song to scrobble, even if disabled, so that when enabled we can scrobble.
  • replies are XML, so decode these properly!
  • Rescrobble, and re-send now playing, if track is repeated.
  • Exceptions are required for all non Qt5 builds
  • Fix compilation with older ffmpeg versions.
  • Fix compilation with taglib versions older than 1.8
  • Use KDE cmake macro to enable exceptions in KDE builds.
  • Only remove cached scaled covers if updated via cover dialog.
  • If auto-splitter hide is disabled, then restore sizes.
  • ReplayGain settings only valid for MPD v0.16 onwards.
  • Don’t center align context view headers and images – as this does not always work for images.
  • Attempt to align song view selector with header.
  • Remove ‘Add albums in random order’ from search view context menu.
  • and many more
