Amarok 'Fast Forward' 1.4.5 (AKO article)
The Amarok team is proud to announce the sixth release of the successful 'Fast Forward' series. This new version adds an integrated Shoutcast stream directory, support for custom labels (aka tags), a Magnatune redownload manager, and it will give you improved sound quality when using the equalizer with xine. There are also many improvements in the GUI which make Amarok more sexy and usable than ever. See Amarok Weekly News #6 for more details on the 1.4.5 release.
1.4.5 is last release of the 1.4 Fast Forward that will have new features. Amarok 2.0 development, based on Qt4/KDE4, has already started. Exciting times for the Amarok project - the summer 2.0 release will run natively on Linux, OS X and Windows!
We are also going to have a Wiki Cleanup Weekend on Feburary 10th and 11th to bring our documentation up to date. Everyone is invited to join the efforts and rediscover our wiki in #rokymotion on irc.freenode.net.
You also have the chance to meet some members of the Amarok team at the KDE booth at FOSDEM from 24th to 25th February in Brussels.
