We've released Banshee 1.5.0, aka 1.6 beta 1.  It is the result of six
months of work by more than 30 people.

Note to packagers:  pass  --with-vendor-build-id, see NEWS for details
and updated dependencies.

New Features:
  * Powerful unicode-aware case-insensitive search; i.e. n matches Ñ

  * Locale-specific, case-insensitive, unicode-aware sorting
  * Artist/album/track sort fields support; i.e. can set artist sort
to "Beatles, The"
  * Separate library locations for Music, Video, and Podcast
  * Creative Commons-aware license column/field
  * Score column/field, automatically updated when played/skipped
