    Enna v0.4.0 is out 

    After many month of development effort we are pround to annouce the release of Enna v0.4.0.

    Enna is an *opensource* mediaplayer application, and for this release
    the licence has switched from BSD to LGPLv2.1.

    Tarball can be download at this address :

    Or you can retrieve enna v0.4.0 tag with mercurial:
    hg clone v0.4.0 http://hg.geexbox.org/enna

    As a convenience, EFL, GeeXboX libraries and Enna have already been
    packaged for Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) users.
    Packages can be found here :

    just add this line on your /etc/apt/sources.list file :

    deb http://packages.geexbox.org/ karmic main


    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install enna

    You should  find enna icon in Applications/Audio and video

    For more informations, report bugs, or to  help us I invite you to
    read the main enna website.

    You can read Ben’s post on his blog : http://gxben.wordpress.com/2010/01/03/first-public-enna-0-4-0-release/ it talk a bit more on enna and integration with next geeXboX 2.0

      Congratz! Its looking AWESOME. If only my laptop didnt die on Xmas day, Id install it as my media centre… 😦

      Regardless; this release is looking sweet. I bet it uses a tiny amount of resources?

      Wow, it is looking great and should run faster even on old hardware, kudos to the developers!
      Is there a way to help with the planned extensions?
      I would like to contribute some Python scripts 😉

      By the way, where are the pictures taken from? 🙂

      Is there a prepackaged live cd iso to download, or is the only way to try this right now to install on top of ubuntu or another distro?

      It’s looking great! Got my library and weather configured quick-quick, and will be doing some testing 🙂

      Enna looks great, but is there any plugin architecture supported? Where can I find documentation or an example about it?
      I’m actually planning to prepare a couple of plugins for a Mediacenter, and if it’s possible I would like to use geeXbox.

        Yes there there is plugins in Enna.
        Activities, browsers, inputs are plugins. But there is no documentation 😦
        You can build them inside Enna or have a .so loaded dynamicly.

          Good to know! However, It will be very helpful to have some manual or example in order to start working on it.
          BTW, I think it could be interesting to have the option to include scripted plugins (like perl or python), much more easy to port between platforms, and with less stability risks for the entire system.
          Anyway, good job!

    Road to Enna NextGen 

    For Two month, I’m writing new version of Enna. As you can see In my previous post, this version run on Maemo. But the main goal is always to write a complete Media Center arround EFL libs for PC. You can found this new version here :

    svn co https://enna.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/enna/trunk/ng/enna enna
    and as usual :
    cd enna && ./autogen.sh && make && make install

    At the moment you should be able to play music file if you have backend compiled and installed. The first backend you can use is emotion. But this weekend GeeXBox Guys added new backend based on libplayer. Thanks Ben to have added this new feature. Development go fast, and I hope to release an alpha version soon with few features : Only Music and Video playback. Development of new modules is fast (Only 1 hour to write libplayer backend for example) and new plugins should come soon.
    I tought to write squeezecenter plugin, to control this network player with enna.
    And if i have time, I will provide deb packages for maemo.

    More comming soon 🙂
