Xnoise has gone through some bigger changes: Import and (most) database
access operations have been changed to use a new background worker. That
means that the work intense and long running tasks have been moved from
the GUI thread. This should give the user a good experience of xnoise
when used with big collections. For example the user can now start listening to his tracks while the collection is imported. No GUI freezes with big collections. Tests have been done with ~7000 tracks. Xnoise stayed usable all the time. There are a few things left, that will be moved to the background worker infrastructure, too. So there is room for improvements.
Per installare Xnoise 0.1.12 su Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick – 10.04 Lucid utilizzeremo i PPA Xnoise per farlo basta semplicemente avviare il terminale e scrivere:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xnoise xnoise-plugins-core
In caso di future nuove versioni ci basterà aggiornare la nostra Distribuzione.
