The windows version of servify now uses libspotify v10. Unfortunately other issues have arisen with the linux version of libspotify. Therefore linux still uses the old version.
Thanks to those who tested this windows version.
Another tip submitted by a user:
Tip for autostarting Servify on a Mac:
Create this one-line AppleScript in AppleScript Editor:
do shell script "cd /Applications/Servify; mono Servify.exe username password 1337 320 >/dev/null 2>&1 &"
Save the script as a run-only application. Finally add the saved application to the Login items of your account settings.

small tip for those who want to run the .bat file unvisible: make a .vbs file with the following lines in it:
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\servify\remote_spotify.bat" & Chr(34), 0
Set WshShell = Nothing
please make sure that you enter the right path to your .bat file, but that's obvious I think. you could place this .vbs file into your startup folder.
The OpenAL audio backend is implemented and tested on all platforms.
This means one and the same audio backend is used on all platforms (Windows, OS X, Linux) and more importantly it is (hopefully) a more stable solution. Particularly on Linux and OS X platforms.
The downside is that another external dependency may have to be installed.
For Windows and OS X, go here: http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/Forms/AllItems.aspx
For Linux (Ubuntu!) you install the following package: libopenal1
Small bugfixes, incremental improvements. Expect more rapid development here soon.
Small features implemented:

Please report any new issues, regressions, bugs etc ASAP! (as comment to this post or email)
Been working on a new audio backend for playback, leveraging OpenAL (via OpenTK) which is a cross-platform audio library.
Unfortunately there's a regression on the windows build which is why there's not been any updates in a while.
The (in)famous error: "HRESULT: 0x800703E6" has reared its ugly head... Hopefully this gets resolved soon.
New Update(2010.12.04): Messed around a bit on my linux system and a 'smaller' fix is to only install:
'libmono-system-data2.0-cil' it is considerably smaller than 'mono-complete'.
UPDATE: this issue can be fixed by installing 'mono-complete' package. FAQ and installation instructions updated...
Some linux users are experiencing the following issue;
** (./Servify.exe:2746): WARNING **: The following assembly referenced
from /path/to/servify/Newtonsoft.Json.Net20.dll could not
Assembly: System.Data (assemblyref_index=1)
Public Key: b77a5c561934e089
The assembly was not found in the Global Assembly Cache, a path listed
in the MONO_PATH environment variable, or in the location of the
executing assembly (/path/to/servify/).
I'm working to resolve it asap. My suspicion is that the MONO package in ubuntu 10.10 has changed and as a side effect of that, a dependency in Servify is not being met. If my fix is successful I will update the Servify package asap.
Just noted that there's a new libspotify version released... I will look to incorporate some new features that's been made available!
