Amarok 2.0 RC 1 was released today
Today the Amarok project releases Narwhal, the release candidate of the upcoming Amarok 2.0.
The changes since Beta 3 focus mostly on fixing bugs, as we are in a fairly hard feature-freeze to give us time to polish the final product. However, this didn’t stop us from adding a few nice new things:
- Users’ Recommended radio is now shown in the Last.Fm Service.
- Playlist browser items can be deleted and renamed using the keyboard.
- Basic and Advanced view when editing a filename scheme are synchronized.
- Added delete button to Advanced view for defining a filename scheme.
- Importer for iTunes libraries now allows you to import your statistics from iTunes.
- The settings dialog now remembers the page that was last used.
- Track information can be edited from the file browser.
In addition, there are the following changes:
- User playlists added from files are now updated on collection rescans, so any changes in the file is reflected in the SQL playlist.
- Layout refactoring in the Organize Collection dialog.
- Enabled Last.fm scrobbling by default when Last.fm login is supplied.
- “Show active track” has been moved from the playlist context menu to the playlist toolbar
- The video and Last.fm applet have been removed for now as they are not ready for final release. They will be readded in later releases.
A lot of great new scripts have shown up on kde-apps.org. Give them a try and enjoy.
Packages are available through your distributions package manager, the KDE-on-Windows installer and from the KDE-on-Mac website. Additionally the tarball can be downloaded here.
And remember, the new Amarok 2.0 RC 1 works on Windows and MacOS too.
