Ahh, I'll bet this is related to Issue #511 on GitHub, "Songs added to playlist are not sorted as they should".
I guess you can't please everyone, but I actually found the lack of sorting new playlist items useful, as I built playlists. Often I would add items and then decide I didn't want them in the playlist. By having them all at the end of the playlist, in the order that I added them, I could easily keep track of things.
I hope you will reconsider and put the sort arrows back.
Removing them did nothing to change the behavior, and I think showing them actually provides something useful. My opinion.
Thanks for the positive feedback. As for helping, what are your skills? We can use help with both development, documentation and possible a new web site. GitHub sponsorship or donations are very much appreciated.
The only thing we have so far is the Wiki on GitHub: https://github.com/strawberrymusicplayer/strawberry/wiki
If someone wants to help with this it would be appreciated.
I was thinking of a MediaWiki site (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki) and perhaps a YouTube channel that can also help spread the word and get more active contributors and funding.
I can create the Wiki and the channel if someone volunteers to help with it.
If someone is interested in helping with it, contact me and we can discuss it.
Strawberry is a community based project with limited funding. You can become a GitHub sponsor to help fund the project.
The last release we have for Xenial is 0.5.5 still available on https://github.com/strawberrymusicplayer/strawberry/releases
It's not possible to use a newer version without upgrading Qt and sqlite3 to newer versions.
To use a newer version you need to compile from source and upgrade Qt and sqlite3, maybe those are available through PPA's.
