It's Dead, Jim?

I'll use subsonic for at least a decade now, but I'm sad that Sindre seem to have lost interest? Don't get me wrong, It's still nice and functional so far. But with the latest last.fm api change you won't get any artist pictures and stuff from it. I guess this has no priority to fix it (if it's even fixable). What you guys are doing? I love subsonic for it's sole purpose (i run plex for video and don't like their musicplayer plus several other things).

Is the development of any of the other branches more current and active?

Airsonic ( https://airsonic.github.io/) is an active fork of the last open-source release of Subsonic. Those developers have been relatively active (https://github.com/airsonic/airsonic/bl ... ANGELOG.md ). Other forks that are music-centric appears to have slowed or stopped development as far as I can see.

Gonna check airsonic as well.
Other alternatives like madsonic are unfurtutally unusable slow.

Maybe the owner will react when he wont get any money for licences in future.
But one thing makes me really mad, if he let it die, why not make it open source?!

:(

The main blocker for open source was he wanted to use a different video player, a commercial library, to get away from flash (this was pre-html5 reliable video days, things are different now I think). That was not something he could distribute while still keeping the rest of the source codes GPL.

Hope Sindre comes back at some point. Would be sad to see subsonic die that way. Iam a user since more then 10 years now and have no intention to switch.
