Dear Python users,
The Moovida team is happy to announce the release of Moovida Media Center 1.0.3, code-named "Lunático".
Moovida, formerly known as Elisa, is a cross-platform and open-source Media Center written in Python. It uses GStreamer  for media playback and pigment  to create an appealing and intuitive user interface.
This release is a lightweight release, meaning it is pushed through our automatic plugin update system. Additionally a windows installer is available for download on our website. As usual, for users already running Moovida, the upgrade to 1.0.3 should be done automatically via the plugin repository.
Important features of this release include a much faster media scanning and thumbnailing for videos and pictures, a better handling of plural forms in translations and updated French translations.
A complete list of the issues fixed can be found at:
This is also summarised in the (attached) release notes.
Installers and sources can be downloaded from http://www.moovida.com/download/
Bug reports and feature requests are welcome at http://bugs.launchpad.net/elisa/+filebug
Have a media-centered week,
Olivier, for the Moovida team
