Amarok 2.3.2 Beta 1, "Sentinel" released

Our Amarok students are still finishing up this year's Google Summer of Code projects, and we'll hopefully release them some time later this fall, when they are fully tested and working. Meanwhile, help us weed out some bugs to make Amarok 2.3.2 the rock solid release we want.

Amarok 2.3.2 Beta 1, codename “Sentinel” is out.

Since the last release in the 2.3 series the Amarok team has been working through the laziest days of summer to implement very much needed fixes, changes and even some new features, especially concerning filtering and podcasts. Read the full announcement here. Please report bugs: bugs.kde.org.

Kubuntu package available here: http://www.kubuntu.org/news/amarok-2.3.2-beta

The new Quick Start Guide is nearly ready: http://userbase.kde.org/Amarok/QuickStartGuide. Please ping me with any complaints, suggestions, or offers of help!

  1. >Removed track progress effect on TrayIcon as it caused several problems (also caused by a bogus implementation of the KSNI class) (BR 233506, BR 240463, BR 231539, BR 232578, BR 232312).

    Noooo, It was one of the favorite killer-features for me. I will miss it. :(

  2. TZ, it might make more sense to comment at the announcement site. Devels are more likely to monitor that than my blog, LOL!

  3. From the bug report, it seems that there's some homework to do to have back the track progress effect. Please, make it happen! I'll wait.

    BTW: Amarok 2.3.2 beta has ended with my 2.3.1 nightmares (Shoutcast is fixed, layout is fixed, so I'm happy!) And I love Sentinel (the Mike Oldfield song ;))
