Beta 5 is available in the previously mentioned URLs.

Changelog:
- Default images match better with different formats
- Lowered the default volume and added a Settings option for it
- Added FLAC metadata support (names and cover images)
- Optimized file adding (when to check metadata from files)
- Added options to launch external programs when a tune starts or ends
- Added Ogg Vorbis metadata support (names and cover images)

I've been busy coding on the binary level lately to get support for those embedded images and other metadata (title, artist, album, etc names). FLAC was relatively painless to support, but it took a while to understand how Vorbis packets are spread over Ogg pages... I tried to make it quite faithful to the specs without shortcuts and it should now support images that are spread over several Ogg stream pages and be able to show pictures embedded according to the latest official and old unofficial standards. Let's see if I dare to try to implement metadata support for AAC/M4A format next...

PS. thanks for the donation salvo!

Perfect I did some tests on my AROS One x86 dragging on the RNOTunes Gui some folders with music files of various kinds and all files were present and functional except MIDI, I attach a small video tutorial!

No new beta yet, but this is what I've been doing ;)

- Added lyrics downloader
- Added built-in Last.fm support (send played songs to Last.fm, get user statistics like top albums, artists, songs, weekly top lists)
- Added Recently Played window to see play history and double-click songs to play them again
- External graphics loading (allows customization, and will get new dedicated graphics from a friend)
- Hunted down some annoying random crash bugs, hopefully got rid of them now
- Many smaller changes and bugfixes here and there

Still have to wait some Hollywood related updates before the release, but at least the program gets more mature for its first public version :)
