It's a highly welcome patch however it is a beta release so it is kinda unstable. However it's nice enough for daily usage.
It's only available for debian based linux so it;s bad luck for others :/. Here's how to install it on Ubuntu.
First open up a terminal and type this
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Now add the following line and save it
deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free
Now you have to get the signing keys.
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59
Now it's time to install it
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spotify-client
Ta da, we have spotify
I have found out that by simply leaving spotify in the What's New page, crashes can be prevented.
