Tomahawk 0.5 released with refreshed look and new features (PPA available)
Tomahawk is a fancy music player designed with track-centric approach, gathering (if configured) songs from numerous both online and offline sources, presenting the user a handy interface where the actual song availability is more important that the its actual source, consequently, the user can utilize the power of Youtube, Spotify, 4Shared, Ex.fm, etc in order to access preferred music content.
Tomahawk has been updated to version 0.5, bringing polish, new and reorganized features, bug fixes and more.
The new 0.5 release comes with a new red-ish minimalistic icon, representing both its main icon and its appindicator.
The toolbar gained a full state with Go back one page and Go forward one page, navigation icons that are to quickly shift between "pages", action "backed" by the newly top-right positioned search bar.
Sharing the currently played song via Twitter can be easily accomplished via the sharing widget on the bottom controlbar, with handy support to further typing and predefined tweet form (such as
Listening to customsong by customartist).
Configuring Tomahawk 0.5 is to be performed under
Tomahawk-->Settings-->Configure Tomahawk with an enriched
Services category that incorporates account configurations (Twitter, Google, Jabber), as well as resolvers (SoundCloud, Last.fm, Grooveshark, Jamendo, etc).
The 0.5 version, along with the mentioned additions and bug fixes, comes with small yet numerous polished parts that are to further please the eye, like for instance, the squared pattern from
Recently Played Tracks.
