Release Date: 2020-04-21 // about 3 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ›  The next minor version of Koel, which comes with new features, improvements, and bug fixes and usual. And, in case you haven't noticed, Koel now has its own domain!

    ๐Ÿ†• New Features and Improvements

    • ๐Ÿšš Media thumbnail moved to the play button (or "play orb" if you will)

    • You can now play a song list in the current order by clicking the "All" button while pressing the Alt (Option) key
    • You can now right-click anywhere on the footer while a song is playing (or paused/stopped) for contextual commands
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Speaking of context menus, now they have a dark theme that matches better with the overall interface

    ๐Ÿ›  Fixes

    • Hotkeys (F, space etc.) now work even when the progress bar has focus
    • Remote control app is now back
    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed a racing condition that might cause logging in to fail with valid credentials
    • For development, hot-reloading now works again
