This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €199 to support development of Nuvola Player in November 2015. Thanks to them, I spent 19 hours working on 7 tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €10.5 per hour.
My dream is to work as an independent open source developer on software for all users around the world. Software for you. You can support my work on Nuvola Player via PayPal, Gratipay, Patreon, Flattr or Bitcoin. Let's make Nuvola Player more awesome!
