Editorial Songbird is a new open-source music player that has this week landed at 1.0. Songbird is described as a "web player"- a music player for this modern, connected era. It blends the web-rendering core of Firefox (Gecko), with the media capabilities of GStreamer- a cross-platform, open-source media playback engine.

When-oh-when will finally a media player (other than our own that is, check out http://mpx.backtrace.info </shameless plug>) support MusicBrainz? Having a unique ID per album, artist and track, and artist sort names is just so much better.

mashTape is nice but I've been working on a similar plugin for our player, based on WebKit, for about a year now too, without knowing that mashTape existed. Kudos for that, it was time that someone (else) did this.

Buut.. MusicBrainz... braiiiiiiiiiiinzzzz.. please! I want my VA (and other multi-artist) albums have individual artists, but be sorted under Various Artists, not scattered all across the library navigation!
