The Elisa team is happy to release the first alpha release of a future 0.1 version of the Elisa music player.
Elisa is a music player designed to be simple and nice to use.
Elisa allows to browse music by album, artist or all tracks. The music is indexed using either a private indexer or an indexer using Baloo. The private one can be configured to scan music on chosen paths. The Baloo one is much faster because Baloo is providing all needed data from its own database. You can build and play your own playlist.
It is available in source form only at https://download.kde.org/unstable/elisa/0.0.80/elisa-0.0.80.tar.xz. KDE also provides regular flatpak and windows builds. The windows builds are provided by binary-factory.kde.org and are using Craft. Thanks to the people in the flatpak and windows teams. A binary package is provided for Fedora thanks to Robert-André Mauchin. Other Linux distributions may provide binary packages from the git repository (as far as I know, there is an AUR package and a package for Neon).
The development is still continuing and we will regularly release an alpha version until we have completed review by other KDE developers. We plan to move to kdereview as soon as we have finished a few missing features.
For the curious reader, the phabricator workboard of Elisa is a good way to know what is happening (https://phabricator.kde.org/project/board/193/).
Any help is very much welcome. We have open tasks for code but also for design.
