We have been waiting a long, long time and now we finally did it: Amarok 2.0 is really soon to be released!

To celebrate this really major event in Amarok history with our fans all around the world we would like to invite you to join us to party really hard. Could there ever be a better reason to do so?

As our fellowers are -more or less- randomly spread all around the world one release party won't be enough, no, we need a lot of them. This is where YOU can help: check out the list on our Wiki, if there is a party close to you location join it by adding yourself and contacting the organizer. If there is no party close enough for you to take part: start one! Simply add it to the list and spread the word.

How should a release party look like? Any way you like it! You could simply get some drinks and loud music. You could set up some ancient game consoles. Just do whatever you think might make that event special and is fun for you and your guests. Take fotos, write blog entries and let us know how you (Ama)rok. Let's get the preparations started.

The timeframe for parties starts this Friday and ends two weekends later.


I'm missing the real reason. True, Amarok 2.0 is not bad. But that's the Problem. A lot of the true key features witch made amaroK so unique and breathtaking are still not in Amarok 2.0. Currently, Amarok 2.0 is like a bug in the great shadow of amaroK 1.x.

Of course, the pice of software is not bad, but still I don't see any reason for celebrating the loss of key features and the winning of some unstable gui effects.

Thanks for the effort, but I still hope Amarok 2.0 will one day reach the greatness of amaroK 1.x.

seems like someone didn't understood the reason of the 2.0 series :o

Right. Not understood.

The reason is to join XMMS?

Whooot! Man are there lots of participants! Especially in Karlsruhe. Perhaps those partying in South America, Africa and Asia should be invited by Karlsruhe. It won't be expansice and it will still be a 'one lonley nerd weekend' but at least its intercontinental!
