Pocket Casts announces Web Player 2.0 Beta, adds many features from the Android app

I listen to podcasts on an almost daily basis (including the excellent Android Police podcast, of course), and for as long as I can remember, my app of choice has been Shifty Jelly's Pocket Casts. It's easy to use, has all the features you'd expect, and the design is great.

The beta of the new 2.0 version of it has just been announced, and it looks like a big update.

It's a strange version number to choose for such a major update (the last one was 2.17). You get a new, lighter interface with a bottom bar to access all the app's editing tools. There are still a lot of sliders, though.
