Changes to Search Engines

With the upcoming Nightingale 1.12 release, we will be introducing the first changes to our API. Don’t worry,  as they should not break the majority of our add-ons.

For a better equalizer

One of the CoMETE project this year was to improve the current Equalizer.

Currently, the Songbird/Nightingale Equalizer only allow to fiddle with buttons and it’s pretty much it. I did in the past an add-on for Songbird to add basic presets support and recently Brice Santus from Evry added the ability to save your own presets in Nightingale.

For techies, your presets are saved in a XML file inside your profile folder, so you can easily copy it :)

For now, the improved equalizer is available as an add-on for testing purposes, but it’s going to be shipped by default on a future Nightingale version.

So please test it, report any bugs on the GitHub issues page, and also tell us how to improve it !
