Amarok 2.3.0 "Clear Light" Released

The Amarok team just released Amarok 2.3.0. It comes with many bugfixes and improvements such as a new funky toolbar and a rewritten file browser featuring much better integration with the rest of Amarok. Read the release notes and enjoy rediscovering your music!

Oh and a new Amarok Insider is out with some tips and tricks including how to search your music collection easily.



Hopefully the feature to hide menubar from GIT will get to next coming version.

The Amarorok team is doing a great job, especially in fixing the Amarok 2.3.0 & making in bugs free.
It's a hard job but they did it the right way.

Hi amarok team,

I loved Amarok in its 1.4 series. this is now over a year that I use KDE4 with Amarok 2, and I realy do not understand where you are going.

Amarok is becomming an application for power users, there are lots of new things that are not intuitive. I think the most important one is how to navigate in media sources. The tabs on the left side where just perfect, now I have to click on a tiny button named '>', isn't that anoying ?! I still remember the first time I used Amarok2: it took me hours to find out where to click to browse my folders !

So I joined the team for a while and contributed a fiew things, but you had your roadmaps and ideas of how things should be and my ideas where just not on the right path so I lost the motivation.

All I would like to tell you now is: please remember, "simple is beautiful".

I am now looking for another musik browser, this makes me really sad and I did not want to quit without a last user feedback.

I used Amarok so many years and I thank you sincerlly for your hard work and the joy I had using it.

best regards.
