Performance Enhancements

Larger Library Support
Songbird can now easily handle libraries with 10,000+ tracks.

Smoother Scrolling
Once the metadata scanner is done, scrolling in a large library is smooth and responsive.

Faster Filtering
Filtering by genre, artist, album, and year is almost instantaneous.

Speedier Search
No long lags or locked up UI when searching your Library.

Improved Memory Management
On Windows and Linux we implemented jemalloc as our memory allocator for XULRunner and have noticed approximately 15-20% memory reduction in common user tasks.

New Features

Metadata Writing
We have a new Metadata Editor that allows you to edit your media and write the changes back to your file(s). You can read a bit more about it here.

Sync Support for MTP Devices

The iPod add-on has been rewritten and a number of bugs have been squashed. We have also started maintaining a new wiki page that details what iPod models we support.

Copy, paste, select all, undo, redo, delete and find text to your heart’s content.

Find Text on Webpages
A number of users asked for a way to easily search for text within a webpage, now you can!
