Xnoise Media Player Gets New Album Art View

Xnoise 0.2.13 has been released today, introducing a new Album Art view, similar to the one available in Banshee or in Rhythmbox through the CoverArt Browser plugin, along with a new application icon created by Reda Lazri.
The new Album Art view can be accessed from the toolbar/menu or by using the CTRL + B keyboard shortcut. There’s an integrated search too, which supports searching for artist, album or track name so you don’t have to exit the Album Art view to find out on which album you can find a certain track:
