Banshee 2.0 has been released after a long wait and to be frank we’ve lost count of days we waited for it . Surprisingly, this Media player has replaced Rythmbox and made it to Ubuntu’s Default Media application & will come preinstalled in Ubuntu 11.04. Banshee 2.0 will be available in Ubuntu 11.04 Beta 2 onwards. So regular Natty testers will get it in an upgrade. Talking of Ubuntu 10.10 and 10.04 users, PPA is available to get it easily on your system. This release of Banshee includes UI improvements, Ubuntu One Music Store extensions, Music Library improvements, Subtitles & numerous bugfixes.
Banshee can be easily installed or upgraded from the following PPA. Just type the following in your terminal, type root password when prompted and you are good to go.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install banshee
Wait for it to complete. After the install or upgrade is done, fireup Banshee from Applications>Sound and Video and enjoy the latest version.
