Amarok 2.4.3 “Berlin”

So fine, we skipped a number! 😉

As you may remember, the last beta release was 2.4.2 beta 1. After that, we did roll a 2.4.2 (final) tarball, but because of some issues which were fixed right after the tag we decided to make another tarball and call it 2.4.3.

That being said, I’m happy to announce the immediate availability of Amarok 2.4.3 codename “Berlin”.

So, what’s new in this release?

There’s a whole bunch of UI tweaks with the aim of making the main window less crowded. The 90s called and they wanted their status bar back, so we ditched it and replaced it with relevant notifications where necessary, recovering a bit of vertical space. Also, the Dynamic Playlists feature has undergone an overhaul which should make it easier to use. A bit of work has been done on Internet Services and Podcasts. Moreover, we have accepted quite a few patches from external contributors, and we have squashed lots of bugs, both during the Randa sprint and after.
