Elisa 0.5.1 Released

Elisa Media Center version 0.5.1, code-named Como se pasa, has been released. Elisa Media Center is a media center application developed by Fluendo S.L., and this version runs under Linux, Windows Vista and XP (editor’s note: If you must run Elisa Media Center, why not do so on your favorite Linux distro? It works better.)

Elisa Media Center is installed by default on Sabayon Linux, and can be installed on any Linux distribution via the command line or via your distro’s graphical package manager.

Part of the release announcement from the Elisa team:

As of new features, you can now add directories where you store your media to more successfully access all your media content. A “fast-scrolling bar” has been added to the interface, allowing you to quickly move across large numbers of songs or movies to find the one you’re looking for. YouTube should now play higher quality clips, if such are available from the online service. Feedback has been added when media codecs are not supported, folders are empty, new versions are available etc.

With Elisa, a new version of Pigment has also been released, code-named Niko Bellic version 0.3.6. It contains a long list of new features, including rotations in 3D, OpenGL-ES support, touchscreen support, etc. Find the Pigment release at https://code.fluendo.com/pigment/trac/wiki.

There are still some known issues in the 0.5.1 release of Elisa, and we are working on solving them as fast as possible:

  • Artists/Albums is not correctly parsed and displayed
  • Audio Visualization does not work on Windows
  • Audio CD is not detected
  • DAAP client missing under Windows
  • USB storage devices do not show up under Linux
