This is an interesting piece of software.

I first tried it a long time ago, then I haven't heard about it in a while.

Some day ago, I installed 0.6.1 and it has gotten nicer, I think.

Then I installed the latest nightly build, and it has an entirely new feather (theme), and stuff are moved and re-organized.

The difference between the nightly build and 0.6.1 is quite huge.

I am looking forward to the next release of Songbird, its going to be interesting.
