Roktober 2010 - Support Your Favourite Music Player
In the last twelve months, we have made more than 4000 commits, closed over 4000 bugs, released 6 new versions of Amarok, wrote a Quick Start Guide to Amarok, attended over 10 conferences and had a big developer sprint in Switzerland. All of this, thanks to your donations!
Some of the highlights we worked on in Amarok itself:
- new Automatic Playlist Generator
- improved cover fetching
- new applets for the Context View (Upcoming Events, Similar Artists, Videos...)
- moodbar support
- better desktop integration (including KNotify support)
- better podcast handling
- queue support
- custom label support
- a huge number of improvements to existing features!
- transcoding, so you can transfer files to your media device in the right format
- UPnP support
- Playdar integration
- spectrum analyzer
- completing the Amarok handbook
- many more exciting features and improvements!
This year’s Roktober, our annual fundraiser, has a goal of 5000 Euros. Reaching this goal will help us handle this next exciting year smoothly. The funds will help us develop more powerful features in Amarok, pay for our servers, and send team members to conferences; we may even run a developer sprint or two!
As a sign of our appreciation for your support we will add donors agreeing to it to a special section in Amarok’s About Dialog. Your name will then appear in each version of Amarok that gets released in the next 12 months.
So join us, and throw in your share to Rok the World!
Here’s how to contribute:

If you agree to be listed in Amarok’s About Dialog as a supporter please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org after you donated with your name as it should appear there (and if you have one, your nickname on opendesktop.org).
