Bug Description

A bunch of bugs were fixed in the new rhythmbox release but it's not purely a bugfix release. Rhythmbox now doesn't use the musicbrainz library but accesses musicbrainz directly. The grilo plugin change doesn't affect us as we don't yet build Rhythmbox with grilo support.

I have run the new rhythmbox and things seemed to work.

Build log attached and my packaging branch.


Overview of changes in Rhythmbox 2.98 "Faults"

* New dialog for importing music into the library
* New audio CD metadata lookup library, replacing libmusicbrainz
* Improved transitions between album art images
* Nautilus cluebar buttons now result in the right source
    being selected
* Update notification buttons when playback state changes
* Grilo plugin ported to grilo 0.2 API
* Search musicbrainz for album art by album and artist name
* Love/ban buttons visible in last.fm/libre.fm sources

I think it sounds reasonable. Are there any changes to the docs that you need to account for?

or translations.

This doesn't affect ubuntu-docs. I don't know what the impact on translations would be.

Please check.

A way to easily check the impact on translations would be to do a diff between the msgid fields in the .pot file generated by the 2.97 package vs. the one generated by the 2.98 package. Could someone take care of that?
