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.

I worked on a prototype of WebKitGTK+/LibSoup Upgrade Request page, which is show on systems with not new enough libraries. This warning will be used by Google Play Music, Spotify, Souncloud and Amazon Cloud Player scripts. Once my prototype is finished, I will make pull requests.

Spotify was reported not to work behind HTTP proxy. The cause turned out to be incomplete proxy support for WebSockets tehnology in older versions of WebKitGTK and libsoup libraries. Required versions are libsoup 2.50 and WebKitGTK+ 2.8 (e.g. Ubuntu 15.10).
Nuvola Player 3.0.3 provides web app scripts with information about current libsoup & WebKitGTK versions and the can show warning accordingly (this bit is still in progress).

I created packages for Fedora 24 but I haven't managed to test them yet. As a consequence, the packages are not public yet (locked to Tiliado developers). I hope to get down to final testing in early July.
These patrons support development of Nuvola Apps. Thank you all!
