What happend to Xmms in Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04?

Just as the title suggests, Xmms has been removed the repository for ubuntu hardy heron 8.04. From what I gathered on my limited reading of forum posts, Xmms was too unstable and not well maintained, thus it wasnt selected for inclusion in the standard ubuntu distro.   I have heard that Audacious is the replacement program for Xmms like functionality.  I just installed it today and will test it out.

For those still looking for Xmms, hit this link, and download the .DEB to install.

  1. XMMS wasn't available in Mandriva 10 either, nor was it available in RH Enterprise 4 (due to licensing concerns). I actually got XMMS for my machine, but it's kind of buggy (takes a long time to load), at least that's my impression.
