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 Tiliado.eu 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.

I've been working on getting all service integration script to use the latest features & guidelines.

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.

The page containing Nuvola Player 3.0 installation instructions for all supported distributions has been split into multiple pages as it was too large. In addition, the installation instructions for Debian have been updated.

I installed Let's Encrypt Certificates for the tiliado.eu domain.

In order to investigate HTML5 Audio support in Google Play Music further, I created a table showing whether a particular combination of a multimedia format and codes is supported. The table is located in the HTML5 Audio tab of the Format Support Dialog (Nuvola Player 3.1 only).
Date: July 3, 2016, 5:42 p.m. • Work time: 2.20 hours • Spent funds: €33.00
Packages of Nuvola Player 3.0.x and 3.1.x for Fedora 24 are ready for installation. In addition, instructions on how to install GStreamer MP3 codec have been updated according to the official RPM Fusion documentation.
On the other hand, packages for Fedora 22 are going to be discontinued to decrease maintenance burden. If anybody would like to continue using Nuvola Player in Fedora 22, let me know.
