It's pretty old news now, but I haven't seen it mentioned here: audacious has ported back from GTK3 to GTK2 for the time being (long term they are moving to QT, and all three toolkits can currently be used).

I never used it, but the move is a good one. GTK3 is very buggy and unstable.

More details:
Quote:
We have switched back to using GTK+ version 2.x by default. It has now been over three years since the release of GTK+ 3.0, and yet the “legacy” version of the toolkit provides more features relevant to Audacious, better cross-platform support, a more stable API, and lower memory usage. Audacious can still be built with GTK3 if desired, but we recommend the GTK2 variant for any desktop environment other than GNOME 3.

Quite a good quote.
This could be problematic for some though:
Quote:
The source code has been converted from C99 to C++11. In addition to making the Qt port easier, the use of C++11 is already allowing more rapid development by letting the compiler work out many details that previously had to be written by hand. The plugin API has also been changed to C++. Contact us if you have a plugin for Audacious that you want help updating.
