Pithos is a native Pandora Radio client for Linux. It’s much more lightweight than the Pandora.com web client, and integrates with desktop features such as media keys, notifications, and the sound menu.
We are happy to announce the release of Pithos 1.0.0! This is a huge release for the project. There are many new features, including a redesigned UI and icon. We hope you like it! Pithos 1.0.0 requires GTK 3.10+ (Ubuntu 14.04). The release will be available via RPMFusion shortly. See below for installation instructions.

Why the name “Pithos”?
The original Pandora myth used the word “pithos”, which was mistranslated to “box”;. Similarly, a flash applet is a mistranslation to the Linux platform.
