Description Kuba Serafinowski 2009-07-16 15:08:47 UTC
Version:           SVN (using KDE 4.2.96)
Compiler:          gcc 4.4.0 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

Please add option to remove duplicate entries in playlist, button would fit in the bar above playlist at best I guess.

changing component to The Playlist. We could add this functionality to the playlistbrowser as well though.

Right, it was me who thought in wrong way, that PlaylistBrowser was Playlist :)

Thanks for the patch, John, but it will have to wait as we are currently in feature freeze for 2.2.
Comment 5 Mark Kretschmann 2009-09-30 14:57:39 UTC
I've merged John Atkinson's patch into git master. Feature will be included in Amarok 2.2.1.

Thanks John :)

Hi John, there's an issue with your patch:

!. Add n times a song (n>2)
2. Remove duplicates
3. You'll end-up with n-1 given songs instead of 1

If you could try to fix this it would be awesome! I'm sure someone will merge fix with pleasure :-)
Thanks again for this patch!
