Amarok 2.7 Beta Released: Testers Needed!

The Amarok Team is happy to present you the Amarok 2.7 Beta release. Please test as much as possible so that the final release, scheduled just before Christmas, can be as bug-free as possible.

This version comes with the following brand new major features:

Another thing to test is the partial rework of support and its configuration, which should fix several bugs. We also aim to have as many translations possible, so if you are a translator, please get in touch with your KDE localization team and offer your help! Good news is the readdition of the French translation.

A full changelog will be published with the final release.

Donate to Roktober - and Own a Piece of Amarok History!

Over the past 10 years we've gathered a bunch of memorable items relating to Amarok. We're planning to auction some great Amarok memorabilia to the highest bidder starting Thursday the 18th of October. As part of our Roktober fundraising campaign, all proceeds (less shipping costs) will go to support the roadmap towards Amarok 3.

The Roktober auctions will close on the 28th; we'll do our best to send the items to the winners before Roktober is over. If your bid doesn't win: don't despair! You can still donate the amount of your losing bid to our Roktober fundraising campaign. And, if your donation is greater than $50 USD, we will send you a limited edition Black Amarok T-shirt (limited to the first 30 donors). You usually can't get one of these unless you see us at FOSDEM, so that's quite a treat.

The auction will be administered by Software Freedom Conservancy, Amarok's non-profit corporate home, and hosted by eBay Works in conjunction with MissionFish, a non-profit organization affiliated with eBay Works. MissionFish and eBay have certified Conservancy's non-profit status, so we can conduct the auction without incurring any transaction fees - which means that more of the money collected can go towards developing Amarok 3.

Read on to find out what amazing items we've got waiting for a generous donor!

Roktober 2012

Amarok is ten years old!

Enthusiasm is growing among the Amarok team as we plan the road ahead, and hack away at bugs here at the sprint in Randa, Switzerland. We are so happy to see Roktober arrive, and we connect to our users, show what we have produced in the last year, and look ahead to a bright future.

In the last twelve months, we have made some 1149 commits, closed over 1030 bugs, released 2 new major versions of Amarok, updated the Amarok Handbook, attended conferences and had a big developer sprint in Switzerland along with much of the KDE Multimedia team. We mentored 5 successful Summer of Code projects and contributed to the Code-in Google organized to get high-schoolers introduced to Open Source projects.

For those using Windows we now offer a fully supported Windows version that can be downloaded from our wiki.
