First, I should mention that the reason there were three projects is
that each developer wrote their respective client before there was any
announcement of any other clients. 

I intend to update the gnome-napster website about this, but I should
probably announce it, too:
I have been employed, and I can't continue development on gnome-napster.  This
means that 0.4.0 (currently in potato) is the final version that I am planning
to release, unless there are some critical bugs.  I'm supposed to stop all
development by the 25th of December.

gnome-napster 0.4.0 is more complete than gnapster in many respects, but I
expect gnapster will pass it by eventually.  Unless someone takes over
development, gnome-napster should be also removed from the distribution in a
few months.
