The cloud music application Nuvola Player that integrates cloud music services like Google Music, Grooveshark, 8tracks, Pandora, Rdio, Grooveshark and Amazon Cloud has seen a new stable release.
Two new stable versions have been released today: 1.1.0 and 2.0. Even though the features are same in both versions, 2.0 comes with GTK3 (only works with GTK3.4+). An old issue where content of Nuvola Player was only partially rendered, did not update and was non-responsive has been fixed with the GTK3 port.
New Features in the latest Nuvola Player:
Amazon Cloud Player is now added as new service to Nuvola.
The service selector screen has been reworked and is based on a mock-up by Alfredo Hernández.
There’s a built-in Last.fm scrobbling now so that you don’t have to use a third-party user script for this.
A new lyrics extension has been added. It provides a pane with lyrics of a currently playing song.
Using the "nuvolaplayer-client" command you can now control Nuvola Player from the command line.
Some previous features such as Dock Manager support, Last.fm, Lyrics, Media keys, Mpris, Notifications, Tray icon, Unity quicklists now come with extension support, and can be enable or disabled.
An auto play option has been added in the preferences. Nuvola Player will try to start playback, when service is loaded.
Google Play, 8tracks and Amazon Cloud Player use HTML5 audio support for playback instead of Flash plugin
WebKit WebView Inspector will allow service integrators to debug their work directly.
Web plugin blocker now blocks all web plugin object that are not necessary for playback.
