After almost three years, there is now a new 1.8.0 release, and it's in the test repo. It was built on vanilla Jessie, so can move to main without any problems.

Some of the improvements include:
  • add Opus support
  • add ReplayGain Scanner
  • add proper tracks+cue support
  • add/improve MP4 tag reading and writing
  • load embedded album art from MP4 files
  • add File Copy and File Move converter presets
  • add GBS, SGC support to Game_Music_Emu
  • improve detecting GTK theme colors for custom widgets
  • add Copy & Paste in playlist
  • add localization support for plugin UI
  • add Drag’n’drop support from deadbeef to other applications
  • add --volume command line option
and many more. The full list can be seen here.

Please let us know how it installs and performs if you try it out, so we can move it to main. Thanks!

Thanks for the entusiam, but this is the existing MX 15 thread. There isn't one for MX 17/18 yet, I'm putting that up right now.
