I am proud to announce the first release of Pogo, probably the simplest and fastest audio player for Linux.
You can get the tarball and an Ubuntu deb package at http://launchpad.net/pogo
What is Pogo? -------------------- Pogo plays your music. Nothing else. It tries to be fast and easy-to-use. Pogo's elementary-inspired design uses the screen-space very efficiently. It is especially well-suited for people who organize their music by albums on the harddrive. The main interface components are a directory tree and a playlist that groups albums in an innovative way. Pogo is a fork of Decibel Audio Player. Supported file formats include Ogg Vorbis, MP3, FLAC, Musepack, Wavpack, and MPEG-4 AAC. Pogo is written in Python and uses GTK and gstreamer.
