Clementine is not just another music player for Linux, Clementine is the fork of mighty Amarok 1.4 which used to be my favorite music player once. Clementine is already one of those great triumphs of open source software and underlines the fact that an open source software never really dies.[Clementine Rocks! I Love Open Source!]
What's New in Clementine 0.5?

- You can now add songs to a queue to have them played before anything else in the playlist.
- You can even use your Wii Remote as a remote control for Clementine!
- Load local files from the library instead if they exist which means existing album art among your local files will be used.
