wmalbum is a Window Maker dock applet that displays album covers for songs being played by XMMS. You must already have images of the album covers stored near the file being played. WMAlbum provides a handy circular menu for play/skip/etc, adjusts volume using the mouse wheel, and can replace wmxmms.
The goal of the General Applet Interface Library is to give programmers a simple yet powerful applet interface. This library supports wmapplet/dockapps, GNOME 2 panel applets, and ROX panel applets. The applet programmer doesn't have to care about where the applet will be used, since the library handles that. Over 50% of the code in a dockapp and a GNOME 2 Panel applet does only one thing, setting up the applet window. With GAI, this can be reduced to just a few lines of code.
