Nuvola Player needs new maintainer, development has been discontinued

I'm sad to announce I've decided to discontinue active development of Nuvola Player. If there is somebody who would like to adopt the project, contact me at Nuvola Player Development mailing list [1]. (No need to create a fork, please.) I would like to thank to all people who have contributed to the project.

I went from being "single" to "in a relationship" a few months ago and I have less free time and extra expenses since then, so I have to evaluate more carefully what I spend my time on and think more economically. Unfortunately, Nuvola Player has become an unwanted child in this context.

As a last ditch effort to continue further maintenance and development, I've tried to crowd-fund my time spent on Nuvola Player via Gittip crowd-funding platform [2]. It provides recurrent micro-donations, so I could work on Nuvola Player regularly thanks to them. The funding goal 25 USD/week (100 backers with a minimal tip 0.25 USD) has not been reached after one-month run, so I should search for more conventional ways how to earn some money.

Sad as well, but I understand :-(
Good luck!
 
Thank you for a great program and all the best wishes to you
 
Thanks for all the work you've done.  And congrats.
 
Looks like +WebUpd8 did mention the new release and need for a maintainer but nothing about the donation goal.
 
+Austin Butler The previous donation goal is now irrelevant. Community had been given an opportunity to support further development, to give something back, and it decided not to.
 
Good luck and thanks for your incredible work!
 
Thank you for creating it, you will be missed! Good luck!
 
Thanks for the effort!
 
Well that's a shame. Did you try to reach out to a few blogs to spread the message?
 
That's so sad. I love your piece of work. I hope to see you developing again soon!
