Another impressions from the testing brach:

 

* It seems to start instantly, cool.

* It consumes more memory. The old version was OK with 512 MiB (or even less) for the whole VM. The new version is lazy with this amount of RAM and causes usage of swap. After adding extra 200MiB of RAM limit, it is OK.

Dbus play/pause status is still broken so media player extension for gnome shell still doesn't show the current track playing etc. :(

Few hours ago today spotify client just went into infinite reload cycle and became unusable (ie it reloads each 2-3 seconds).

Where can i download previous minor version of spotify linux client? (i have 1.0.23.93 now)

 

As a temporary solution (Spotify <1.0 which i am possible to find is unusable for me because it not supports hidpi) i found mopidy-spotify-tunigo + mopidy-mopify

> the infinity reloading problem comes from freetype-2.6.3

 

(downgrade to 2.6.2 helps)

Spotify stores its cache in the default folder instead of the folder ive specified. Very annoying.

I've just updated to Spotify version 1.0.23.93.gd6cfae15 and Spotify icon is missing from system tray.
Is there any magic to get it back?

I'm using default Ubuntu 14.04.
