This is a maintenance release with few new features, but a lot of work to move bliss to more recent dependencies to allow future development.

Just under two years ago I blogged that we would stop making bliss updates available for the VortexBox 2.2 repositories. This meant we still built an up-to-date version for VortexBox 2.2, but it wasn't available in the "repos" for easy installation.
Now, we're going to have to stop building new versions for VortexBox 2.2 completely. The current released version will be the last one.

This release re-introduces the cancel button into bliss. Ok, it wasn't always called the cancel button... it used to be "pause". But I thought the feature was similar to the cancel functionality of a web browser (i.e. "stop what you're doing!") hence the rename.

It's 2018 and yep! Disc title support is still poor.
What's a disc title? Well, admittedly it's a niche requirement. Disc titles are commonly used on box sets in releases with multiple media which require names for each media. Normally we just get away with "Disc 1" or "Disc B" but sometimes we want something a little more descriptive...
I went through a bunch of music players and found pretty poor support overall for the out-of-the-box experience. With a little configuration, the more powerful players can be made to work.
