Perhaps I'm ignorant here, how does this involve the bug you mentioned? xine support was removed because of lack of maintainership. 
Comment 2 Ernst Sjöstrand 2004-05-21 17:56:46 UTC
It seemed more like the bug was about m4a support, that was only supported with the xine backed earlier. 
M4a works with the gstreamer backend now.
Comment 3 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-24 10:00:58 UTC
Afaik there's still a gstreamer change needed to complete m4a support, so thats why I wanted to wait until gst-0.8.2 is out before adding this release.
Comment 4 Ernst Sjöstrand 2004-06-07 10:06:58 UTC
gst-0.8.2 and .3 out!
Comment 5 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-06-08 03:22:19 UTC
it's plugins changes that are needed iirc
Comment 6 alex f 2004-06-09 12:35:39 UTC
Yup, new gstreamer is out. So the m4a support is there. See Bug #53202

Any update on this?  I'm looking to using rhythmbox for the m4a support.  I emerged it but was disappointed to find out the version in portage doesn't support it......
Comment 9 Hinrik Örn Sigurðsson 2004-06-27 00:03:03 UTC
0.8.5 is out, any news ?
Comment 10 Mike Messmore 2004-06-30 12:52:43 UTC
Made ebuild for Rhythmbox 0.8.5 by copying the 0.8.3 one.  Using gst-plugins-0.8.2, everything works dandy with m4a files.

Comment 12 drumz 2004-07-11 10:25:54 UTC
Are we going to see a version bump in gentoo anytime soon for rhythmbox?  It's still at 0.8.3, and now 0.8.5 is apparently available.........waiting for m4a'd be nice to have it in gentoo natively rather than having to do it by hand.
Comment 13 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-07-12 06:24:11 UTC
yep, added 0.8.5 (faad USE for m4a support), marked 0.8.3 x86 stable.

Sorry it took so long.
