Release notes for Radiant Player v1.4.0:

At long last, the actual next version!

Major changes:

  • Support Google Play Music's latest redesign
  • Mac OS X 10.8 is no longer supported (see #291 for progress, if any, on the possibility of re-instating support)
  • Removed all styles except for Google and Black (formerly Spotify Black) due to incompatibility with the new redesign; I will be looking into porting one or two of the original styles to the new design

Other changes:

  • Prevent brief 'ghost' mini player while switching spaces (fixes #309)
  • Allow mini player to be used in other full screen applications (fixes #79)
  • Allow reload button to be clicked when internet connectivity is lost while first loading Google Play Music (fixes #313)
  • Implement ⌘A (select all) shortcut (fixes #317)
  • Open release page instead of home page when a new version is available
  • Prevent dragging of file onto main window (fixes #307, thanks @nielstholenaar)
  • Add support for ⌘[ and ⌘] keyboard shortcuts to go forward and backward (fixes #296, thanks @gholts)

Many thanks to all the testers of the two beta releases, and I will certainly be continuing to look into the outstanding issues that a couple users have reported. Also, very many thanks to everybody who was patiently waiting for this release ever since the Google Play Music redesign! I would have liked a much shorter release window, but hopefully this version is satisfactory enough to forgive that! Enjoy.
