For those who have never heard of Pragha, see the description below:
Pragha is a Lightweight Music Player for GNU/Linux, based on Gtk, sqlite, and completely written in C, constructed to be fast, light, and simultaneously tries to be complete without obstructing the daily work. ;)
A tiny history of the project:
Consonance, An excellent player emerged in the archlinux forums, was discontinued. The author, Sacamano said in his blog:
“Which doesn’t mean that it won’t be maintained. I would still be fixing bugs, but major feature additions are not in the pipeline, because I have completed all that I wanted to see in Consonance. It has been a fun project. :)”
Well.. Dissonance is the project to continue developing Consonance, and its result is Pragha Music Player. A New reproducer of music.. ;)
Pragha 1.3.2 was released a few a hours with following new features:
- Add optional client-side-decorators support trying to follow Gnome3 HIG.
- Can hide menubar and then append a gear menu on toolbar.
- Add a infobar when some change on prefrences need restart.
Also there are a few UI improvements, various bug fixes, translations updates in this release. See the release page for details.
