Amarok manufacturer description

Only 4 weeks after the 2.2.1 release the Amarok 2.8 Team is proud to present you with a beta release of the upcoming Amarok Audio players 2.2.2. We are especially delighted by the many patches and contributions from new contributors that found their way into it.

So what is new in this beta release? Well, let us surprise you: custom Labels for tracks are back in Amarok! Yes, it took some time, but we are glad to be able to allow you to add your very personal labels to your music again. Another well known feature from the 1.4 series making a comeback is the often requested moodbar. Just be warned, you will need the gstreamer backend and quite a few other additional packages to have this working, but we already prepared a wiki page with the necessary instructions. Of course, all 4 moodbar styles known from Amarok download 1.4 are supported in this version.

Many changes found their way also into the podcasts section, with a much improved handling of the grouping and downloads. It is now possible to modify the update interval in the configuration file, the downloads are less memory hungry and already existing files are not downloaded again.

We also made some small changes for better usability: The Playlist Layout Editor is now part of the Playlist menu in the menu bar, while the playlist actions are at the bottom of the playlist panel. This has the big advantage to see immediately if you did activate a random, repeat and/or favor mode by a visual indicator. All buttons and items now have tooltips that allow you to identify the various elements with great ease.

There are many more features to discover, many changes and an impressive list of bugfixes in this preview, as the changelog below shows. Let us just mention one other important change that allows us to take full advantage of the development framework in use: Amarok now depends on KDE 4.3.x and Qt 4.5. Expect some very nice new stuff for the month to come :)

As usual with Beta releases, we would love to have as much feedback as possible from testers who are not afraid to use a preview on their system. While we will not add new features until the final release of Amarok 2.2.2, we will fully concentrate on improving the existing features and options. This of course means that we rely on you, dear testers and music lovers, to really push this version to its limits and report as many problems as you can find. and, as usual, this is a beta release, so don`t use it if you are not comfortable when Amarok causes some strange happenings on your machine, dries your laundry instead of sorting music or even eats the occasional cat
