Gereqi 0.3.6 - not any old point release!

I've just released version 0.3.6 and with it comes some new features:
  1. Playlist saving, renaming, reusing
  2. Playback of tracks with "#" in them
  3. And most importantly, an installer via the use of distutils!
To install run (whilst in the packages root directory):
python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install
Done.

There are 2 bugs and feature#2 sort of brought of one of those in:
  • Urllib's pathname2url seems to be a bit flakey and causes exceptions. It's really random as the files it's chucked at work most of the time, just sometimes it doesn't.
  • Adding tracks to the playlist that is not sorted by filename causes blank rows and an unplayable playlist. I might try the PyQt4 mailing list but every time I do it seems to be a waste of time.
Slowly but surely progress is being made and apart from those aforementioned bugs, the program has been rock solid for me. I've only tested on Funtoo amd64/i386 and Ubuntu 9.10-i386.

Get the package from here.
