Amarok 2.4 Beta 1 "Closer" Veröffentlicht

Im vergangenen Herbst hat sich sehr viel getan bei Amarok! Viele Sommer-Projekte wurden zusammengeführt und getestet. Es ist eine aufregende Zeit und wir sind stolz, euch die erste Beta-Version von Amarok 2.4 vorstellen zu können.

Diese neue Version bringt einige neue Features mit. Die untenstehenden Funktionen sind noch in einem kritischen Stadium und müssen noch ausgiebig getestet werden, um sie "wasserdicht" für das Final Release Anfang 2011 zu machen. Dabei brauchen wir eure Hilfe, also probiert alles aus und berichtet uns von allen auftauchenden Problemen!

  • Transcoding: Lieder können jetzt direkt beim Kopieren in die lokale Sammlung von einem Dateiformat in ein anderes umgewandelt werden. Wir werden diese Funktion in den nächsten Versionen auch auf mobile Medien erweitern.
  • Komplett neuer Sammlungs-Scanner, völlig neu programmiert - er sollte besser und störungsfreier arbeiten als der alte.
  • Amarok bietet jetzt die Möglichkeit, Statistiken und Album Cover direkt in die Dateien zu schreiben, so dass z.B. der Abspielzähler usw. direkt in den Dateien gesichert werden kann.

Außerdem gibt es folgende neue Features:
  • Verstecken der Menüleiste
  • Multi-Tagging mit Musicbrainz
  • Unterstützung des iPod Touch 3G (und möglicherweise neuer)
  • Ein neues Applet für Gitarren- und Bassgriffe
  • Eine Karten- und Kalenderansicht für das "Kommende Events"-Applet
  • Eine neue Playdar Sammlung für das Hören lokaler Playdar Services
und vieles mehr.
Zusätzlich wurden viele Fehler behoben und Verbesserungen eingeführt, speziell in den Kontext-Ansicht Applets und der Wiedergabeliste. Für weitere Details lest bitte das Changelog, siehe unten. Bitte testet diese Version ausgiebig und berichtet uns von allen Fehlern auf bugs.kde.org. Vielen, vielen Dank!
