Esperanza 0.1 (2006-11-01)
0.1 is released today. You can download the release (source) here: http://people.xmms2.org/~tru/esperanza/ and MacOSX binaries from the same URL. OBSERVE that this is not XMMS2, just the Esperanza client!
Install and build
- XMMS2 C++ bindings, which needs boost.
- Qt 4.2 or newer
- dns_sd (bonjour) for mDNS support
Download tarball, extract it, run configure and then make. That should produce the binary.
For windows see here: Windows Build Instructions
Report bugs and request features in the XMMS2 bugtracker.
