Hi everyone!

Today is release day! After months of development and quite a few preview versions, I’ve decided it was time to release version 1.3.
I’d like to thank all users, testers, developers who helped on GitHub, and last but not least, the people who donated. All you help is very much appreciated. One feature didn’t make it in this release: smart playlists. Sorry about that. That feature has been moved to version 1.4.

This release contains many improvements over version 1.2. This is the change log:


Playlist support was rewritten from scratch. Your existing playlists will not be migrated.

playlists after upgrading to this version.
