Important information

Tidal, Qobuz and Deezer support has been dropped. Tidal does not want to share their API, and Qobuz does not respond to e-mails.

Windows releases 0.6.6, 0.6.7 and 0.6.8 has had some stability issues caused by the GStreamer WASAPI plugin, version 0.6.8 has been rebuilt and repackaged as with the WASAPI plugin removed and a added Qt style plugin, this solves the stability issues and also adds a nicer GUI appearance.
