Dear Python users,

The Moovida team is happy to announce the release of Moovida Media
Center 1.0.7, code-named "Jeepers Creepers".

Moovida, formerly known as Elisa, is a cross-platform and open-source
Media Center written in Python.
It uses GStreamer [1] for media playback and pigment [2] to create an
appealing and intuitive user interface.

This new release adds experimental support for DVD playback (including from DVD images). It also includes many bug fixes; most notably: Moovida now obtains album covers again (now using and the start-up looks nicer than ever.

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 1.0.7 should
be done automatically via the plugin repository.

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

Bug reports and feature requests are welcome at

Have a media-centered day,

Guillaume, for the Moovida team
