Users of the desktop Pandora application ‘Pithos’ may be trilled (bad pun, sorry) to hear that everyone’s favourite launcher ‘Docky’ has added ‘helper’ controls for the app in its latest development version.

The ‘helper’ adds right click controls to the dock icon, allowing application and playback management even when the application is minimized.
