Fast Forward to 1.4.7

Yet another bugfix release from the Amarok cave to shorten the time until Amarok 2.0 hits the earth. Our code monkeys have been working very hard to get you an even more polished version of Amarok 'Fast Forward'.

Amarok 1.4.7 includes an improved collection backend as well as a new icon coloring provided by Pasi Lallinaho. The streams we provide got a cleanup to give you the finest and coolest streams available. Of course we have also fixed a bunch of bugs, even though our main focus has moved to Amarok 2.0 development.

In other news: parts of your favorite team will attend FrOSCon in Sankt Augustin, Germany, on August 25th and 26th. So come visit and and say hello. Don't tell anyone but we even have a little surprise for everyone visiting us with a USB stick. Don't forget to bring cookies ;-).
