Gradio Receives New Beta Release and Adds New Features
According to Felix, a Developer Häcker, Gradio’s next major stable release needs to deliver ‘a rock-solid stable base for the next versions’, and in order to do so he needs feedback on how well the app is doing.
The new features featured in Gradio 5.0 include:
- Minimize to tray
- Continue playback in background
- Infinitive scroll
- Automatic install of missing codecs
- New menu layout
- Notifications for new songs
- Clicking on a station toggle play/pause
The new version has also received an improvement in the station head logo, introduced transient notifications, and lowered the GTK version requirement from 3.18 to 3.14.
Felix has not updated his Gradio Ubuntu PPA with this build but he says he plans on making a Flatpak version of the app available for testing “shortly”.
If you are handy with the command line and will be able to compile the app yourself the you can download Gradio 5.0 Beta 1 (Source Code) for free.
