Songbird gets forked after stopping Linux support.

Recently, a number of blogs have covered the bad news about Songbird development team halting Linux support for the Songbird music player [1, 2, 3, 4].

However, the good news is that the Songbird project has been forked already, and the upcoming forked project is called "Nightingale", and it can be found here. And according to this source, the source code for the new project will be available on Bazaar (bzr) soon.

This news is great since the Songbird media player seemed very promising, and dropping Linux support for it was a very stupid decision.
