In my previous post about Songbird Mp3 Player, I said that it would be released within a week. But I guess, the guys over at Pioneers of the Inevitable LLC wanted to make sure that Songbird was fully functional before it was released.
Since I was away for more than a week, it was just today that I was able to check on the status of Songbird. Looking at their blog, I found out that it was released last Feb 8th.
Songbird 0.1 Proof-of-Concept is now available for download. I’ve downloaded and installed it on my machine but have to try it out yet. Even though it is still on a test-phase, it is fully functional. Just like Firefox, this mp3 player will make use of extensions to make it more interesting and fun. It can play almost any type of media file.

What others have to say about Songbird:
“At first it only looked like a black iTunes…it is XUL based and more open than iTunes, expect a large number of plug-ins and extensions to really do some wild new things in the frustratingly stagnant world of media players.”
“Screw Web 2.0, XUL moves us straight into the Web 3.0 that technologists like you and I that “get it” are really looking forward to :)”
