Nightingale at RMLL 2013

rmllenIf you’re from Europe and are active in the Open Source scene, you might have heard of the Rencontre Mondial du Logiciel Libre (RMLL) or Libre Software Meeting (LSM) in English. This year it will be in Brussels from the 6th to the 11th of July and it will be with Nightingale.

Me (freaktechnik) and GeekShadow will be around the whole meeting. Not only will Nightingale have its own booth, we will also have a talk! The talk will be on the 11th July at 17:20 o’clock in room K3.401. We will talk about various work flows we have for the development. We may be a quite small project, but it’s still a lot of work for just a few people. We will also talk about Nightingale in general; what it is and what we hope it will be. You can find all the details for the talk on the official talk page from the RMLL.

The booth will be right next to the one of Mozilla. We will have some demos. But for people who are already familiar with Nightingale there won’t be anything exciting… We won’t have a secret prototype you can only see at our booth. But there will be stickers!

If you attend this years LSM, don’t hesitate and talk to us!

Announcing Nightingale 1.12

We’re pleased to announce that Nightingale 1.12 is finally available for download! Existing installations of the last release version of Nightingale (1.11.0) will give you the opportunity to automatically update – this will be the first time we’ve ever used our update system. It may or may not work depending on your OS, and how you have Nightingale configured. We hope everything works great, but if it doesn’t let us know, and grab a regular build.

What’s new?

Most importantly, we moved to a cleaner backend. For you, that means Nightingale is more stable; on Linux, it means you use more of your system’s own libraries. This release also brings us closer to using more recent libraries. Behind the scenes, we’re already planning the next release which will use a current xulrunner, delivering more features and performance. Such an upgrade is a very large project, and as such we could use more developers. Feel free to pitch in!

We have also cleaned up our installer for Windows, which no longer requires administrative privileges. We  moved it to a completely new backend and designed it to be much simpler from the developers’ point of view. Working in the old system was quite a pain!

Another platform specific change is LookingMan’s Unity Integration – Nightingale is now able to integrate into Gnome and Unity audio menus and notification systems, a much requested feature that we are very happy to have available for you.

Independent of your platform, there are a number of new and ported addons, some from Songbird, others from scratch. One new addon includes GeekShadow’s fixed and updated port of the SoundCloud addon, a feature any self-respecting player should have.

While we work on version 2.0, this release should last for a while. A large reson being the last big change between 1.11 and 1.12: we fixed tons of issues. From crashing issues on Windows and Ubuntu to cosmetic issues like Nightingale opening with an empty tab – this new version fixes many old issues. We have also improved the branding a bit, updated the locales and made some tweaks – read a full list of changes in the Changelog.

We hope you enjoy the new version; update or install it and enjoy some music! We’d love to hear your feedback in the forums or on the IRC channel, #nightingale on moznet. We’re always looking for testers, developers, theme makers, and users to idle in our forums and IRC, not to mention help out with the project. Feel free to join!

Spread the word – and enjoy the tune of life!

Your Comments Wanted! – Considering Donation Options

So far, we’ve tried to avoid ever discussing the “d” word, donations! We’ve felt that as a good project, we wanted to try to avoid having to deal with money, but it’s getting to the point where it seems inevitable. The factors involved revolve around our need for hardware, costs associated with appearing at open source conferences, and most importantly, our lack of devs – we really need a bug bounty program to get some things fixed, or if we have enough, the money to hire outside developers to help us get Nightingale to be all it can be.

Some of the ideas on the table include accepting PayPal, bitcoins, litecoins and whatever other digital currencies, and perhaps setting up an indiegogo page – which of these do you like best? Do you have any other/better ideas? If you happen to have disposable income, and would like to pledge an amount to hire a developer or setup a bug bounty, we’re of course interested in hearing from you as well.

Please, tell us what you think here in the comments, in our IRC channel, #nightingale on mozdev, or on the forums.

Happy Nightlies! (Updated 2/13)

 “Nightlies” are builds compiled every night, more information on Wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightly_build
Since the beginning, there were Songbird nightlies available to test out new features and develop add-ons for future versions. There were both branch and trunk builds released each day – later they decided to only provide trunk builds. As of now they seem to build branch builds again for version 2.1.0.
Nightingale’s case is particular, we didn’t have build servers like POTI does when starting the project. Fortunately, we are now setting up buildbots to compile and upload nightly builds every day, if there are changes in the source code.
To begin with, three build servers are provided by Antoine (GeekShadow):
  • GNU/Linux, Ubuntu 12.04.1 i686 → .tar.bz2
  • GNU/Linux, Ubuntu 12.04.1 x86_64 → .tar.bz2
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 x86 → .exe (Inno Installer) and .zip

One is provided by Matt (ilikenwf):

  • Mac OS X 10.5.8 and greater → .dmg
All servers are located in France, except for the Mac, and are set to upload builds to SourceForge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ngale/files/trunk-Nightlies/

For now we are only building the sb-trunk-oldxul branch which is version 1.12 but matches Songbird trunk (2.2). We chose to rename to version  to “1.12” mostly because there are no major changes between the Songbird trunk (2.2) and 1.11 since POTI is mostly bumping up the version numbers for their closed-source work.

Some technical notes :
Unlike Mozilla and POTI, we have decided not to use Buildbot since it’s much too complex for our needs. Instead, we are using our own bash scripts available on GitHub. They are easy to use and modify 🙂
More information can be found on our wiki :
Whether you’re a developer wanting to build the next generation of add-ons or a user not afraid of the freshest and sometimes very unstable changes,  Grab a Nightly Build and let us know what you think!

Merry Christmas from (and to) The Nightingale Team!

New (old) Hardware

I recently purchased an old 2006-era Mac Mini for our development, so that I could make sure and get a more proper Mac build out for our next release. I’m happy to say that after setting up the build environment (and reinstalling OSX once the machine arrived, as I trust no eBay seller to do that part for me), I have most of the Nightingale build dependencies built fresh.

2006 Era Mac MiniNew Mac Testing Build

I’m still fighting with XULRunner to get it to build under OS X. That said, I did compile the new TagLib, so I was able to cobble together a current trunk build for all 5 of our Mac users out there (j/k, we have at least 7 Mac users :P). You can download the testing build here. I’d love to hear of any issues you run into, as I’m using a different compiler – the vanilla gcc 4.7 – to build the dependencies and client this time around. It should provide for smaller, faster, more efficient code.

Gearing Up For A New Release: 1.12

In other news, the team and I are all working hard to get the polish all together for a 1.12 release here at the beginning of January. Short of fighting to get the FLAC albumart display working, we have a lot of great changes, as well as more stability across all our platforms. On Linux especially, we have more system integration, and only have to rely on XULRunner and SQLite as precompiled dependencies. The release after next should do away with those altogether.

New Year’s Parties – Use Nightingale, Tell Friends!

We hope you had a Merry Christmas, and happy holidays all around. Furthermore, we all wish you a very happy New Year! Make sure to use Nightingale to play the music at your New Year’s parties, and show it off to your friends! Our resolution is to make Nightingale the best desktop music player out there, and to have more people use it as well. We can’t do that without your help, so please, make sure to help us get the word out!

Discuss!

Feel free to talk about the player, discuss the Mac build, or even just let us know your New Year’s resolutions in the comments, jump into the forums, or chat with us in #nightingale on irc.mozilla.org.
