Exaile 4.0.0 beta2

There is a new version of Exaile 4.0.0-beta2 available for Sparkers.

Exaile: Music Player for GTK+
Simple interface. Powerful music management. Smart Playlists. Advanced track tagging. Automatic album art. Lyrics. Streaming Radio. Podcasts. Secondary output device support. Easily extensible with 50+ plugins available.

The Exaile was my favorite music player until Debian devs removed it from Stretch and newer repos.
The Exaile was not under development the last 2 years, but this year it’s back as 4.0.0 beta release (!).
It uses Python and GTK+ 3.x libs and what I like much it’s very lightweight.

Installation:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install exaile
