2004-11-02 : big commit in the CVS

I made a big commit today in the CVS. It adds to PyMServ a browser window, to browse albums, tracks, and give rates.

I believe some bugs will come to me after this commit, I will make my best to fix them. I am realizing that I need to rewrite large parts of PyMServ to make it a little cleaner. I will try to use more Python properties and to rework the interface.

I also uploaded a few more screenshots, showing the console window and the browser window. See screenshots section

About PyMServ


PyMServ is a graphical client for mserv, a music server. It is written in python using pygtk and gconf to store prefs.

It is written by me, Nicolas Roman, from France. You can reach me at gnicolasr (at) gmail (dot) com. The PyMServ icon was made by a friend of mine, Olivier Boyer.


PyMServ is the first thing I made and would call "software", so please :

Mailing list

PyMServ has a mailing list. It's called pymserv-users, but you can post a message related to any subject (in touch with PyMserv of course). You can subscribe to this list at the PyMServ users list info page.
