Good day. What a smashing start! The weasel evolves very well. Thanks to all the people who have sent feedback, suggestions, bugs and even packages -- have a look at the sidebar.

At this point just a few answers without questions:

- Yes, the weasel will be dockable at any side of the screen.
- Yes, on some systems there are problems when running the weasel with metacity as WM. Investigation in progress.
- Yes, we encourage you to pet your weasel from time to time.

Thanks for reading & enjoy the weasel.

- Timo

I just installed the weasel on debian sid on ppc-linux. After starting XMMS I get some messages from weasel which tell that everything seems to went in the right way, but it does not work at all.
I am using fluxbox and wmaker as wm.

Killer tiny app, compiled and worked perfectly on my slackware 9.1...just one question, any plans to release a version for Beep (GTK+2 version of xmms)?

Kick-ass plugin. Just tried it and positively loved it. Congratulations!

Btw, would you consider such a plugin for gkrellm? It'd be killer.

I don't see anything on this page that says what xmms-weasel is. What is it?

This is the development blog.
See the Sourceforge summary project page and the video:

Really great plugin.
But it's bad, that equalizer does not disappear together with the main window and playlist.

Well, it appears that the weasel is dead...

No.. Just it is just having its winter sleep. I am sure you find understanding for that. Poor little thing ;)

To be honst, we're both short on time at the moment. Thats all. New weasel early next year.

I've figured out how to reliably trigger the problem with XMMS Weasel and Metacity.

Just keep your mouse over the playlist after having clicked one of the buttons like "Sub" and it will try to slide it back down without cancelling the upward slide that's already in progress.

...and I'd like to throw in my vote for a sideways slide and equalizer movement support.

Great plugin.

Is this project still alive?

I have the same question as MaoP, seems like nothing happends for over a year. About the plugin? It's great, it's kind a hard to find (couldn't remenber the name...), i think it would be great to see this nice plugin listed in XMMS's page.
