Cantata 2.1 Music Player released

Cantata 2.1 Music Player recently released, 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.
