Chances are if you've ever dealt with Pandora music streaming from the Linux desktop you've encountered Pithos as the main open-source solution that works out quite well. Released today was Pithos 1.2 and it ships with numerous enhancements for this GPLv3-licensed Pandora desktop client.

Pithos 1.2 adds a number of new keyboard shortcuts for the main window, initial support for translations, an explicit content filter option, reduced CPU usage with Ubuntu's default theme, redesigned dialogs and other UI elements, and more.

Some of the more technical changes to Pithos 1.2.0 includes now using Autotools as the build system, migrating to GSettings, storing passwords with SecretService, improved integration for Flatpak app sandboxing support, and a variety of other code improvements.

Those wanting to try out Pithos 1.2 for your Pandora music streaming needs from the Linux desktop can fetch the latest code via the GitHub project site.
