Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Tomahawk is an unique music player that unifies music sources like Spotify, SoundCloud, Rdio, Youtube and others to make listening to music easier. Like iTunes, it can play the music from your local computer. But with some plugins, it is capable of searching for your favorite music, on the music sites/sources I have just mentioned two lines up.
The latest version available is Tomahawk 0.8.2, which has been recently released, coming with a huge list of changes:
- Show error message if saving tags failed.
- Fixed painting issue on search page.
- Disabled sorting for stations.
- Fixed drag & drop behavior in combination with certain resolvers.
- Fixed infinite scanning recursion.
- Prevented adding dupes to the collection when scanning.
- When playing an artist or album, don’t give up when the first track in list isn’t playable.
- Fixed importing M3U playlists.
- Sort album grids by artist name.
- Fixed painting issue on ‘More Albums’ grid.
- Fixed crash when editing/saving track tags.
