Nuvola Player 3 doesn't need any hacks to support Flash plugin, because it is built on top of WebKit2Gtk+, the second generation of this web rendering library. The major diference is that plugins are run in a separate GTK+ 2 compatible process, so there is no need to use nspluginwrapper and install 32bit libraries on 64bit system. There is also one extra benefit: If Flash plugin crashes, it doesn't take down whole Nuvola Player application.
New in this release:
- A crash under Wayland session was fixed (GDK_BACKEND set to x11).
- The accelerated compositing mode is disabled with WebKitGTK < 2.13.4 due to a WebKitGTK+ bug that may crash systems with certain graphic cards.
- A non-functional local-storage-directory setting was removed as it produced a console warning.
- The design of the Welcome screen was improved.
- It is possible to disable media keys in the Preferences dialog.
- A wrong implementation of the CanPlay and CanPause flags of the Media Player Remote Interface Specification (MPRIS) was fixed resolving issues with Unity Sound Indicator as a result.
- Console warnings produced when notifications component were being disabled were fixed.
- Initialization of the Web Worker process is more robust. Blank incompletely loaded and improperly initialized web pages should no longer occur.
- Notifications API is no longer called if it is disabled as it is obviously not functional and produces only console warnings.
