Amarok 2.4 Beta 1 “Closer”

Unsurprisingly, this fall has been a busy time for the Amarok squad: we had several heaps of code to merge from this year’s Google Summer of Code projects, and we cooked up lots of new features. All the stuff that our GSoC students blogged about months ago and much more will finally be released in January 2011 in Amarok 2.4.

But first, to make Amarok 2.4 rock-solid we would like to ask you, our users, for some help.

We have just released Amarok 2.4 Beta 1, codename “Closer”. In the hope that this release brings us all closer to creating the perfect music player, get it, play with it, test it, and if you find something that needs to be fixed please do send us bug reports at bugs.kde.org.

If the next few weeks are holidays for you, the Amarok team wishes you a happy holiday season!
