Sprint 103: Markers for Playlists

The Avalon team's demo for sprint 103 is now available.


103 focused on:

·     Packaging bug release 5.0.1

·     Adding new play list features for 5.1, of note is our markers feature

·     Fedora 4 research for Avalon 6.0 release.


103’s demo is our new marker feature:

·     Markers allow users to add descriptions of moments in time to music tracks and videos within a playlist.

·     Key use cases are for finding specific solos or scenes in streaming media. 

·     Markers can be edited and deleted by users.
