This is a minor bug-fix release: The translations were messed up in
the last release, same with the icon for the editor window in
strange-quark, and the autotools usage has been improved a bit.

Quark is maintained again. This release uses a GtkStatusIcon instead of the
custom trayicon widget, for it was using an ugly background when embedded
in the LXDE panel. This also fixes an occasional crash in strange-quark
when opening files. A patch used by many distributions to allow deprecated
Gtk features is included.

strange-quark's tooltip now shows the current song. Quark exports a
proper protocol for client notification. A bunch of bug fixes in quark and
strange-quark. Quark loads the ~/.xine/config file for detailed
configuration of its playback.

strange-quark now has a Recent menu with recent selections made from its
file dialogs. quark parses playlists created on more platforms correctly
by treating \n and \r as line breaks. Sort directories when adding their
contents to the playlist. Fix for playlists with absolute paths. Prevent
infinite loop if quark is unable to play anything in the playlist, only
looping through them once. Close the audio device when paused.

strange-quark supports entering URLs directly into its file dialog. Add
support to quark for playing real-audio streams. Fix for laggy pause/resume.
Added a 'ko' translation from Kang Jeong-Hee. Fix for bugs in net playlist
parsing. Fix bug where excess whitespace would be included in the filename.
Hide the Playlist Editor that was not meant for inclusion in 3.0.

Quark has changed backends from GStreamer to Xine-lib. Added support for
playing .pls files from off the Web. Internationalized the backend and
strange-quark GUI, allowing for language translations.
- June 15, 2003
Quark can now be passed a .m3u or .pls playlist, and it will add the songs
contained in the list. Fixed bugs in adding recursive directories. Bugs in
gstreamer 0.6.2 have caused a workaround which only allows Quark to play
MP3 streams (see gstreamer bug #94113).
- June 14, 2003
Quark now has the ability to play HTTP streams. Added options in the
strange-quark menu. Ability to add directories to quark recursivelty
in addition to individual files. strange-quark runs the backend process if
it is unable to connect to it. Add schemas for the options in gconf with
descriptions of all the options. A number of usability improvements to make
life more pleasant when using strange-quark.

This release makes strange-quark into a functional frontend. It is added to
the GNOME menus on install (if installed to the same prefix). charm-quark
can now provide control over the network by running it with -l on the server
and with -r on the client machine. quark now uses GConf to save its options
and persists its playlist when it is shutdown and started again.
- June 11, 2003
This is the initial release of quark. The backend is functional via the
FIFO and charm-quark provides a usable front-end to the application.
strange-quark is not yet functional -- it docks in the system tray but does
not provide any useful functionality.
