This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €170.52 to support development of Nuvola Player in April 2016. Thanks to them, I renewed Tiliado.eu VPS hosting for €53.78 and spent 7.48 hours working on five tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €12.6 per hour.

I released Nuvola Player 3.0.2. This is a bug fix release addressing following issues:
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/3.0.2 or use Tiliado Repository for Nuvola Player.
I would like to thank to all Nuvola Patrons who made this release possible.

I was dealing with following support requests & bug reports:
I investigated the issue Deezer page stops refreshing/displaying content after a song is played. It looks like a quirk in the WebKitGTK library though.
I requested more information for the issue Amazon Cloud Player - Songbar not changing.
I closed the issue Tiliado Repositories unable to Download on Nuvola Side /Ubuntu 15.10 wily/ pi2 B apologizing that I don't provide packages for ARM architecture.
I looked at the issue Amazon Cloud Player -- Selections open in browser and asked the maintainer to deal with it.
I helped with Elementaryos Freya (Ubuntu 14.04) Installation difficulties that were caused by conflicting repositories.
I investigated the issue MPRIS integration not working properly on Ubuntu 16.04. I believe there is a bug in the Unity Sound indicator widget as all MPRIS metadata are set correctly by Nuvola Player.
I helped with the issue Flash Player not found in Fedora 23 and fixed Fedora packaging to prevent it from happening.
I failed to reproduce the issue Spotify - MPRIS controls not working under Gnome 3.20 and asked for more feedback.
Date: April 16, 2016, 4:13 p.m. • Work time: 1.62 hours • Spent funds: €24.30
There are certain rendering and integration issues that happen only in Ubuntu 14.04. Since I believe they occur because of an old WebKitGTK library in Ubuntu, I uploaded WebKitGTK 2.8.5 packages for Ubuntu 14.04 and rebuilt Nuvola Player to use this newer version instead the old packages from official Ubuntu archive.
Examples of the issues:
Date: April 7, 2016, 5:36 p.m. • Work time: 0.00 hours • Spent funds: €53.78
I renewed VPS hosting for Tiliado.eu website for 1452 CZK/year (about €53.78).
Date: April 6, 2016, 11:35 p.m. • Work time: 0.27 hours • Spent funds: €4.05
I worked on the MPRIS Rating feature requested by a Nuvola Patron. This month, I addressed issues from the review of my pull request to the Media player indicator GNOME Shell extension and I've been waiting for a response since then.
For the record, this task is really huge as it comprises:
Date: April 6, 2016, 10:08 p.m. • Work time: 1.64 hours • Spent funds: €24.60
I built and published Nuvola Player 3.0 & 3.1 packages for Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus.
