Edited bug report. Now we are syncing audacious 1.5.0-2 :)
** Description changed:
Binary package hint: audacious
Please grant this FFe for audacious. Great 1.5 release :)
Explanation of the Ubuntu delta and why it can be dropped:
Pulseaudio-by-default is broken so we should sync it
+ audacious (1.5.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
+ * Configure without SSE2 support (Closes: #471061).

audacious (1.5.0-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release, highlights include:
- Provide the correct location for skins and configuration in
- Correct Build-Depends so that it won't try to incorrectly build on Etch.
- Bump Depends to force dependency on audacious-plugins 1.5.
* debian/copyright: major updates

Audacious 1.5.0 (2008-03-13)
* Everything between 1.4.1 and 1.4.7. (duh)
* Ability to disable GTK+ theme suggestions provided by skins.
* Entirely from scratch audio engine (libSAD) which supports:
- 16-bit audio
- 24-bit audio
- 32-bit audio
- IEEE floating point audio
- 28-bit fractional audio
- many weird obscure "audiophile" formats
- high quality dithering/conversion/resampling to produce as
high quality audio as possible for your sound system.
- bit-exact passthrough of decoded audio (compare to
"kernel streaming" in foobar2000)
As a result, support for oldschool 8-bit soundcards has been
_dropped_. It's 2008, they haven't made such hardware since the
Additionally, codecs now send audio to audacious using their
native format; removing the need for costly implementation-specific
* New unified metadata editing for most formats. Ability to see
"raw metadata"; the metadata which can be used in tuplez scripts.
* Removal of the XMMS audio conversion engine in it's entirety.
* Support for "virtual plugins"; the ability for a single module to
export up to thousands of plugins. This will be used more in Audacious2.
* Many adjustments to the winamp2 skinengine.
* Faster jump-to-file.
* Implement support for session management.
* playlist_compare_artist(): Avoid NULL dereferences.
(Bugzilla #172, Bugzilla #168, Bugzilla #35).
* Tons of memory leaks fixed.
Notes from us (the audacious developers):
This is the last branch of Audacious that will support in Winamp2 skins
in core. We are working on a new default UI for Audacious2 which provides
a more metadata rich environment (while still be lightweight and fast).
However, it is planned to implement support for Winamp2 skins as a plugin in
the next version. No promises, though.
It has been fun being seen as "rescuing XMMS" by the community; but this
has never been our goal. Our goal has always been to develop the best
possible player on Linux. This means that we are audiophiles, and we want
our audio to sound as nice as possible. This has been our primary goal;
not maintaining a Winamp2 skinned player. When we determined that the current
UI implementation was getting in our way, we decided to rip it out. As such,
the future of Winamp2 skins in Audacious is undefined, but they will probably
be supported via a plugin.
