Thanks in part to last month's GNOME Core Apps Hackfest in Berlin, the GNOME Music application is being revived.

GNOME Music, of course, being a music player for GNOME. The current GNOME Music was basically a prototype and not designed for scalability, thus GNOME Music is going back to being rewritten before focusing on new user features.

The GNOME Music codebase is expected to be re-engineered over the GNOME 3.24 cycle to better separate the user-interface from the backend, among other improvements.

Those interested in learning more about the upcoming overhaul of GNOME Music can find more details via GNOME developer Georges Stavracas with this blog post.
