Testing for the next release

Thursday, 22 December 2022 | George Florea Bănuș

Next release will come soon, but since there have been some big changes it would be nice to have them tested by more people.

The biggest changes are to the playlist which can now open m3u files, supports adding both local files and urls, can be sorted, cleared and saved.

The other big changes are to the recent files, which has been rewriten to fix a bunch of bugs, see below.

To test you can use the flatpak beta

flatpak remote-add flathub-beta
flatpak install flathub-beta org.kde.haruna
flatpak run --branch=beta org.kde.haruna

or build it yourself

git clone
cd haruna
# append `-D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/your/custom/path` to install to a custom location
cmake -B build -G Ninja
cmake --build build
cmake --install build
