Hello,

Has the playlist display been removed from the standard skin? When I
play albums, I'm no longer seeing the entire playlist... only the 'now
playing' track. (I'm using the 12/29/2003 daily build.)

Am I right in assuming that the use of the iTunes library precludes
the use of FLAC and SHN files, because they're not supported by
iTunes?

And assuming I am right, would it be a huge engineering challenge to
add a "supplemental" folder for non-iTunes-supported files, or would
it just be better for all concerned to forego iTunes? (If I forego
iTunes, after all, I don't really lose anything but support for
iTunes playlists.)

I think that one of our developers (Robert Moser) is planning on adding
this feature.

In the mean time, you can browse and play back songs that are in your
saved playlist folder, so that should work now.
