[Regression] Option to start hidden is missing
Last modified: 2012-07-31 21:17:14 BST
There is no option to start with the main window minimized to tray/indicator. This was existing in 2.x branch.
Will be implemented as an extension that can be enabled.
If you are in a hurry, you can copy the extension from a Git checkout into your ~/gPodder/Extensions/ folder and enable it in gPodder after a restart to have it available :)
