Clementine, the cross-platform open source player inspired by Amarok 1.4 has finally reached version 1.0. After many months and after a variety of previous versions, Clementine comes as a solid alternative to the existing music players.
One of the great things that have come in version 1.0 is integration with streaming services like Grooveshark, Spotify and SKY.fm/Digitally Imported. Clementine now not only is designed to play music stored on your computer’s hard drive, but it also works as a recipient of a wide range of radio stations on the Internet.
The inclusion of a greater number of options for transcoding (MP3, FLAC, MP4/AAC and WMA) and support for CDs are other new features of version 1.0. Of course a lot of errors have been corrected and desired features have been added as the intelligent search of illustrations of albums and a unified search for the local library and Web services.
Clementine Player 1.0 can be downloaded free of charge and available for Windows, Mac OS X and most Linux distributions.
