YouAmp update

After upgrading to natty and discovering Banshee I basically stopped YouAmp development as Banshee basically fulfilled all my requirements and bringing YouAmp on par to Banshee feature-wise would cost me at one year of work – fulltime.

  • SoundMenu integration (only tested on Natty)
  • Shares cover-art library with Banshee, to avoid duplication
  • Updated translation from Launchpad

So in case you are looking for something more lightweight than Banshee, you can take a look…
