just wondering where to find the release notes for my newly updated version of the desktop 0.9.8
Clearly its moved away from the very ugly white artist pages and moved to black, much nicer on the eyes, but for whatever reason all the text has got bigger, meaning less tracks on my screen to choose from etc. plus my playlist list is HUGE to scroll through now, thanks to the larger font. Not ideal, albeit better to look at..... Anyone else have any thoughts?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Glad to see other people have the same issues as me regarding 0.9.8. Here's a list of things that need to be changed. I think we can all agree on them.
These are the main issues I have.
On the plus side:

It updated on its own, the 4th 0.9.8 version I've seen so far. I'm in the Collections [Your Music] beta group, so that may explain it.
No major differences I can see offhand. Back to 0.8.3.

This updates makes spotify almost unuseable. The font is way to big and there is too much space between tracks. This is unworkable with playlists of 8000+ songs.
I do like the layout change, it is way better then the white one. I would like an option to change font size and spacing between songtitles.

I agree with an option to change font size and spacing between tracks & playlists.. The layout is nice, maybe a little hard on the eyes (or is it just my eyes getting used to the black rather than white backgrounds???) But the spacing and font size is a MASSIVE issue, very very ugly

I want the previous theme back :(:(:(
The black background of 0.9.8 is hard to make out from my dark desktop background, the font is way too big, and the spacing is just annoying. The earlier one was also way more relaxing for the eyes.

The only way to do so is to get the installer for the latest version from someone nice enough that is eligible for the rollout. I am not the one to do so because I am still under the old version and can't get the update.
If you are eligible and haven't updated yet, you can get the installer by going to the Spotify folder, triggering the update and quickly copying and pasting spotify_new.exe while it is updating. spotify_new.exe is the installer and will work on any user.
