Hi,

New features:

  • Radio stations can be created from albums and playlists
  • New share dialog

As always, report any problems you have!

Brilliant to see Linux preview updated on the same day as the Windows/Mac release!

 

Any news on [integrated] support for multimedia keys?

Thanks a lot! Don't worry for the media keys, we already have a nice way to do it ;)

Hmm, it seems that only amd64 has been updated, and not to the version I said. I'm working on pushing the right version, and for i386 as well.

When I go in the repository, it seems that only build 0.8.3.169 is available, for both platforms!

It should be 0.8.3.278, I'm trying to fix that. Version 169 does not have the new share dialog.

I also think it's very cool that you're keeping us in line with the Windows and Mac users.Keep up the good work!

This works for me. Grabs media keys and uses libnotify (ubuntu) for song information.

Get the script from http://code.google.com/p/spotify-notify/ and add it to startup applications with the parameter -s.

So great to see that the GNU/Linux users get their share of the new version, thanks :)
