Amarok 2.3.0 “Clear Light”

The Amarok team is always at work, aiming with every release to deliver the best music player on earth and beyond. For some it may be just great fun, for others it may be a sacred calling, but for all of us a release cycle is a journey with its ups and downs, that comes to an end with a release. Each release is a time when we unleash our brainchild into the wild, and take a moment to just feel proud about what we have achieved.

This is such a moment.

Today I’m happy to announce the immediate availability of Amarok 2.3.0 “Clear Light”, which brings countless improvements and fixes over Amarok 2.2.2, and lots of new features. This release is the result of extensive user feedback, and it contains many patches submitted by members of the greater Amarok and KDE community. Check out the release announcement and please digg it.

    Yay! I’m especially happy for fixing that nasty bug with lyrics cutoff, and new layout possiblities.

    Meanwhile, OS X users are still left without the stable binary of the “music player for Unix, Windows, and OS X” that’s been promised as imminent for six damn years.

      We’re working on it to the best of our abilities, but we have even fewer developers on Mac than on Windows, currently 0. If there’s something in particular you dislike about Amarok on Mac we would gladly accept a patch, and if it’s a binary you miss we could also use a hand with packaging.
