xwax 0.6 is now available: http://www.xwax.co.uk/

xwax is open-source vinyl emulation software for Linux. It allows DJs and 
turntablists to playback digital audio files (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC 
and more), controlled using a normal pair of turntables via timecoded 

It's designed for both beat mixing and scratch mixing. Needle drops, pitch 
changes, scratching, spinbacks and rewinds are all supported, and feel 
just like the audio is pressed onto the vinyl itself.

The major changes between v0.5 and v0.6:

* New music library scanning which is modular and extensible
* Decreased memory use of timecode decoder

and other minor fixes.
