Nuvola Player in June 2016 - Report for Patrons

Written for Nuvola Player by Jiří Janoušek on 2016-06-23

This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €150.17 to support development of Nuvola Player in June 2016. Thanks to them, I put aside €6 for Tiliado.eu VPS hosting and spent over 9.9 hours working on five tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €14.56 per hour. However, I didn't count support requests which were dealt with for free. https://tiliado.eu/nuvolaplayer/funding/tasks/201606/

Mixcloud script 3.0

Written for Nuvola Player by Jiří Janoušek on 2016-06-21

I released Mixcloud web app script 3.0 on behalf of Samuel Mansour almost a month ago but forgot to announce it. Anyway, this release contains following changes:

* Mix/track info parsing made more robust.
* Added license metadata.json field.
* Version increased to 3.0 because of existing 2.x tags.

Source code available at http://github.com/tiliado/nuvola-app-mixcloud/releases/tag/3.0

Nuvola Player 3.0.3 released

Written for Nuvola Player by Jiří Janoušek on 2016-06-04

I'm happy to announce Nuvola Player 3.0.3. This is a bug fix release addressing following issues:

  * A wrong implementation of the CanPlay and CanPause flags of the Media Player Remote Interface Specification (MPRIS) was fixed resolving issues with Unity Sound Indicator as a result. Issue: tiliado/nuvolaplayer#224
  * Console warnings produced when notifications component were being disabled were fixed. Issue: tiliado/nuvolaplayer#227
  * Initialization of the Web Worker process is more robust. Blank incompletely loaded and improperly initialized web pages should no longer occur.
  * Notifications API is no longer called if it is disabled as it is obviously not functional and produces only console warnings. Issue: tiliado/nuvolaplayer#227
  * JavaScript API got new Nuvola.VERSION and Nuvola.API_VERSION constants for scripts to be able to detect whether currently running instance is NP 3.0.3 or higher and it is possible to run code which caused improper Web Worker initialization in older versions.
  * A version of the LibSoup library is shown in `nuvolaplayer3 --version` and in the About dialog. In addition, JavaScript API got Nuvola.LIBSOUP_VERSION, Nuvola.LIBSOUP_MAJOR, Nuvola.LIBSOUP_MINOR and LIBSOUP_MICRO constants for script to detect not new enough versions and to recommend upgrading. Issue: tiliado/nuvola-app-spotify#13

These issues have been also fixed in the rolling builds of Nuvola Player 3.1. You can download the source tarball at https://github.com/tiliado/nuvolaplayer/releases/tag/3.0.3 or use Tiliado Repository for Nuvola Player.

I would like to thank to all Nuvola Patrons who made this release possible. Make a donation to keep the project going. Thank you! https://tiliado.eu/nuvolaplayer/funding/
