A source tarball for the alpha version Bangarang 2.0 is available here.
This alpha phase will be a relatively subdued affair. It mostly intended as a nearly-feature-complete sneak peak for fans of the app. As our team is very small and our bandwidth is limited, we’re focusing our efforts on getting to feature-complete and into a more formal beta testing phase at which point we can focus on bug-fixing and polishing. A more detailed release announcement will accompany beta and final release.
Of course, this is pre-release software and, as with all such software, it may have an unpredictably voracious appetite for kittens and puppies and all things of universal cuteness and value.
Important: If you elect take a look at this alpha release, the first thing to do is to go the “Media Lists” view and select Advanced>Update Ontologies from the dropdown menu in the upper right. Bangarang 1.x stored media information in the nepomuk store using a draft version of the nepomuk shared desktop ontologies that was not ready at the time of the 1.0 release. The tool updates the way the information is stored to properly use the latest released version of the ontologies. This will take a while depending on the size of your collection. After this is run your media information should show just fine in the app.
Special thanks to Stefan Burnicki for the immense help provided so far.
