Development towards 0.6
Hi, I just wanted to tell you that the development of radio tray 0.6 is up and running. I’ve been receiving more contributions , which is great. Thanks to Ed Bruck, Radio Tray now has volume control, by using the scroll wheel on the icon. It’s pretty cool. I then added that information to the tooltip to improve feedback to the user. Here’s how it looks:
Another cool thing added is a DBus interface. Having a DBus interface means that the doors are open for other applications to interact with radio tray. Here’s the list of functions available trough DBus:
It’s possible that some more might be added, like mute(), etc. So, basically I’m hoping someone finds this interesting and start making all sort of integrations 🙂 There’s also a "testdbus.py" in the repository, so if you have no experience with DBus and want to hack into radio tray, it should now be easy.
So, despite all of this, there’s still much work to finish version 0.6. Although I’ll probably postpone some features to version 0.7, there’s also bug list to attack. I want to close down most of the bugs for this next version.
Stay tuned and happy listening.
