Yammi ("Yet Another Music Manager I...") is a digital music collection (eg. mp3, ogg, flac, wav files) manager targeted at large song collections (eg. a few thousand songs).

It allows you to efficiently organize your music collection (edit tags, rename or move files, ...) and features intuitive and fast access to songs for playing or editing them.

For playing songs Yammi currently supports three media player backends, namely XMMS (X MultiMedia System), Noatun or an internal arts player (and experimental: gstreamer).

Here are some key features of "Yammi":
fast and easy fuzzy search (search 5.000 songs in less than a second for a misspelled song)
support for id3, ogg and flac tag reading and writing (including id3v2) via taglib
organize songs into playlists/categories
automatic folder structure (by artist/album/genre/year/history)
easy navigation between folders
automatic statistic keeping (when/how many times was a song played?)
powerful consistency checks to keep your song database consistent
organize names and location of song files by enforcing a configurable directory/filename pattern (eg. /music/{artist}/{album}/{trackNr} {artist}-{title}.{suffix})
jukebox functionality to load song files on demand from CDs/DVDs
easily burn a selection of songs to audio or data CD/DVD (using K3b)
assistance for backing up your song collection to multiple CDs/DVDs
prelisten to songs on headphone to DJ your own party (needs a second sound device)
invoke other programs such as cdlabelgen or your own shell scripts to generate CD labels, transfer files to your IPod or execute other commands using the information from Yammi's song database

What's New in This Release:
fixed: not properly replacing umlauts for building valid filenames
fixed: missing icons and translation files in tarball (bug 1248755)
