Bug Description

It looks like the Feature Freeze kicked in for Quantal before I could get the
first beta of Banshee (2.5.0; released a couple of days back) in. Currently,
what we have in Quantal is 2.4.1, which is probably going to be the last release
in the 2.4.x series. This is not going to be supported once 2.6.0 gets released
though, and that's projected to happen before Quantal's release.

In light of that, I would like to request a feature freeze exception for
Banshee's 2.5.x series leading up to 2.6.0.

The NEWS entry since 2.4.1 is:
Banshee 2.5.0 - 2012-08-22

    Banshee 2.5.0 is the first release in the 2.5 development series leading up
    to 2.6, scheduled for October 2012.

    New Features:

      * Lots of improvement on OS X:

            * Hardware support for USB mass storage devices.
            * Handle opening files directly in Finder.
            * Use native file chooser dialogs for importing files.
            * Improve keyboard shortcuts.
            * Fix various volume issues and inconsistencies.
            * Switch to gtk-mac-integration and move to cocoa API.
            * Add debug and logging facility to OS X launcher.

      * LastFM: Add device scrobbling support

            Enable Last.fm scrobbling of recent plays from a connected device.
            Currently only available on devices supported by the AppleDevice

      * File management options are now specific to each source

            The "Copy files when importing" and "Update file and folder names"
            can now be set independently for Music and Videos.


      * LargeTrackInfoDisplay: Display track rating in "Now Playing" view
      * MassStorage: Support the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android phone
      * Re-enable the AAC audio profile
      * ThickClient: Append 'Banshee' to window title
      * MassStorage: Support reading playlists from multiple folders

I am concerned because of how crashy Banshee seems to have become in Quantal; it would be good to know if you've experienced any improvement with the new version. If not, some progress on getting it reported would be welcomed.
