Nuvola Player Project Enters Maintenance Mode

Failing to overcome technical challenges in a timely manner, the Nuvola Player project has discontinued active development. The project enters a one-year maintenance mode and will deliver integration bug fixes on a best-effort basis until the final End-of-Life on December 31, 2022.

Maintenance mode

Nuvola Player issue tracker on GitHub is still open for reporting issues. Each bug report will be individually assessed whether it is feasible to fix the problem in a timely manner.

Technical Challenges

Nuvola Player is facing a lot of technical challenges and issues that need to be addressed and would require a significant time investment. The four major unresolved problems are:

  • Native Wayland support.
  • Porting Nuvola from GTK 3 to GTK 4.
  • Reworking Nuvola distribution to a single flatpak package published on Flathub.

Thank you

I would like to thank all users of Nuvola Player over the years and anyone who participated in the development of Nuvola Player. I’m especially grateful to the users who purchased the Nuvola license and make it possible to provide a one-year maintenance mode instead of terminating the project abruptly.
