Release 3 consists of 112 commits to 119 files and 23 new files including 3 new commands and 6 new backend scripts most of which are designed to provide increased support for multiple platforms, Arch Linux being one of the two new platforms MusicPlayerPlus is being built, tested, and packaged for. See https://github.com/doctorfree/MusicPlayerPlus/compare/v2.0.1r2...v2.0.1r3 for more detailed information on the changes included in release 3 over release 2.
