New audio device handling compatible with ALSA and Pulse devices if
support is compiled in
Several bug fixes
GTK 3 support is not yet enabled, but code should be GTK 3 clean
Audio Meter enhanced to use cairo drawing
DBUS is now optional (disables gecko-mediaplayer integration)
Code should compile and run on Windows under mingw
Get rid of VDPAU error message
Seeking on streaming media if supported by mplayer
Updated translations

Hi Kevin

1.0.2 is working well in Puppy Linux 5.21beta. It has resolved a fullscreen issue in JWM which was apparent in 1.020.
There is an issue in the 'file' menu with icons in puppy showing the broken image icon, which may be puppy specific because we don't use the larger desktop environments. We use rox-filer for the desktop and openbox/fbpanel or JWM for window management. The icons in question are network-server and media-optical. (see line 6781 in gui.c) If I install xfce4 as a DE then all is well. Any advice how we can overcome this issue?

Mick,

Sounds like your icon theme. On my machine (Fedora 14) those icons are provided by gnome-icon-theme at a minimal. So perhaps you just need to move those icons to the base install.
