But last I checked, the repository browser on archlinux.org doesnt
support that and the banshee pacakges in the AUR are SVN releases done
by other users.

Oh, they are. Banshee had a complete rewrite and the 0.98.1
really really basic.
0.98.3 adds new stuff like shuffling, video support etc.
I think I would call that major features.
On top of that none of the plugins from before had been ported yet in
0.98.1 including Podcasts, DAAP, and MTP/iPod support.
