What is new in exaile

Exaile is a bugfix release for 0.3.2. A short list of notable fixes:

* The shoutcast plugin has been removed from the default install, as shoucast has changed their API and the new terms of service are not compatible with our license.
* The default lyrics provider was changed to lyricwiki, as lyricfly no longer works properly.
* A bug that prevented Exaile from running on very recent versions of pygobject was fixed.
* A bug preventing files from being added via the CLI was fixed.

    Since switching to Linux back in 2008, Exaile has been the only music player I use. It may not have all the options some of the others do, but it does allow for, while looking at tracks or artist on the left (collection) it allows for drag and drop to the current playing list. I like that. Also, no need for 3 or 4 views while stuff is going on…. Lightweight and functional for what I need a MUSIC player to do.
