Banshee 2.0 has been released after a long wait and to be frank we’ve lost count of days we waited for it . Surprisingly, this Media player has replaced Rythmbox and made it to Ubuntu’s Default Media application & will come preinstalled in Ubuntu 11.04. Banshee 2.0 will be available in Ubuntu 11.04 Beta 2 onwards. So regular Natty testers will get it in an upgrade.
Users of Banshee media player can now buy music from Amazon's MP3 store and support the GNOME Foundation at the same time. At the GUADEC conference, the GNOME team announced that the support built in to Banshee to access Amazon's music store now sends an affiliate ID when it transmits requests to purchase music.
