Nuvola Updates Amazon Cloud Player, BBC iPlayer & Jupiter Broadcasting; Supports Fedora 28

The latest stable Flatpaks of Amazon Cloud Player, BBC iPlayer & Jupiter Broadcasting — all maintained by Andrew Stubbs — were updated to use Chromium-based backend for music playback without Flash plugin whenever possible. Installation instructions were updated for Fedora 28, and Nuvola Runtime received a few tweaks.

To install Nuvola, follow installation instructions at the Nuvola Apps Repository Index. To update Nuvola, run flatpak update --system && flatpak update --user in terminal (as a regular user, not root/sudo) or use a package manager which supports Flatpak (e.g., a recent GNOME Software application with the Flatpak plugin).

This blog post applies to the genuine flatpak builds of Nuvola. If you use a third-party build, contact your distributor to find out which features are available.

Nuvola Runtime 4.10.44

  • The installation instructions were updated to use GNOME Software to search for and install Nuvola Flatpaks in recent versions of Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and Arch Linux. Command line instructions are still present as an alternative.
  • The installation instructions for Fedora 28 were added, but they are same as for Fedora 27 because Fedora’s Flatpak experience is constantly stable.
  • The URL filter for external links was updated to support the latest Facebook log-in pop-up windows, and to ignore multiple external URL requests in quick succession. [GitHub]
  • Developer’s tools added the Web View sidebar to retrieve the dimensions of the web view, to resize it and to take a snapshot. [GitHub]

Amazon Cloud Player 5.6.1

BBC iPlayer 1.4.1
