  • support for MPD “single” and “consume” modes (requires latest development version
    of python-mpd, because current stable v0.2.1 doesn’t support these MPD modes; you

  • ‘Love’ button for
  • ‘alway start in tray’ option into preferences

  • ‘add all from this artist/album/genre’ menu item
  • do not show notification if sonata is active/visible
  • ability to hide “XX songs, XX minutes” line in artists library view
