Open-source DJ platform Mixxx just got an update, with new controller support for the Pioneer DJ DDJ-SB3, and a number of other new features and bug fixes, including the ability to sort playlists by colour – a nice addition.

If you haven’t ever heard of or tried Mixxx, it’s definitely worth a look, for fun if nothing else – it’s matured over the years into a viable open-source alternative to the big names, and as well as working on Mac and Windows, is Linux-friendly.
