gPodder 3.5.0 "The After Hours" released

It's time for another gPodder 3 release! Version 3.5.0 brings first-time support for Sailfish OS (using Sailfish Silica), an improved and cleaned-up MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan UI (which now shares big chunks of code with the Sailfish UI) and device playlist sync for MP3 players in the Desktop version.

  • QML UI
    • Playback position in episode list, shownotes button in medi aplayer, download filename in shownotes and horizontal line for sections (by Nelson Ferreira)
