The Elisa team is happy to announce our new bugfix release, version 0.2.1.
Elisa is a music player developed by the KDE community that strives to be simple and nice to use. We also recognize that we need a flexible product to account for the different workflows and use-cases of our users.
We focus on a very good integration with the Plasma desktop of the KDE community without compromising the support for other platforms (other Linux desktop environments, Windows and Android).
We are creating a reliable product that is a joy to use and respects our users privacy. As such, we will prefer to support online services where users are in control of their data.
In parallel to the development of the next stable release, we have been pushing a few fixes to the current stable version.
We have fixed the layout of the playlist in Windows build. They should now be identical to the Linux builds. Here we are using the ability to tune some parts of the interface by providing specific qml components for a given platform.
We fixed issues that could lead to wrong data shown for albums with multiple discs.
The buttons in the header on top of the views are now aligned with the top and bottom of the big icon.
We will continue to fix issues in the stable version for some weeks and may produce a second bugfix release in one month.
The team would like to thank everyone who contributed to the development of Elisa, including code contributions, testing, and bug reporting.
We are already working on new features for the next release. If you enjoy using Elisa, please consider becoming a contributor yourself. We are happy for any contribution!
We have tagged some tasks as junior jobs. They are a perfect way to start contributing to Elisa (Elisa Workboard)
The flathub Elisa package allows an easy way to test this new release.
Elisa source code tarball is available here.
A Windows installer is also available thanks to Craft and binary-factory teams.
