Fundraiser July 2016

This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €205.33 to support the development of Nuvola Player in July 2016. Thanks to them, I put aside €6 for the VPS hosting and spent over 13.8 hours working on seven tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €14.44 per hour. However, I didn't count support requests which were dealt with for free.

You can support my work on Nuvola Player via PayPal, Gratipay, Patreon, Flattr or Bitcoin. Let's make Nuvola Player more awesome!

Thank you!

All-in-one Nuvola Player Bundles for Ubuntu & Debian

For even easier installation of Nuvola Player, I've created Nuvola Player Bundles for Ubuntu & Debian. The bundle is single package that bundles the core application as well as integration scripts of streaming services. Upon installation, all components are updated independently via the Nuvola Player Package Repository.

The bundles are designed for new Nuvola Player installation only. If you wish to update your current Nuvola Player installation, use a package manager application to find and install updates.
