Hi Jonas - I am wondering most about the reason for the fork. Like I said I really enjoy the enthusiasm I feel around Strawberry, and I did see comments at Clementine about the amount of time that passes between updates.
For anyone else interested I did find this two-year old Reddit thread (https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/anp6r2/strawberry_music_player_a_fork_of_clementine_i/) discussing the fork to Strawberry.
for myself, I am going to jump onto Strawberry. My short term interests are having a music organizer that will replace MusicBee running in Windows 10 and then carry me over as I transfer to MacOS.
