Software-update: Amarok 1.4.5

Het programma Amarok is een populaire audiospeler voor KDE en beschikt over uitgebreide mogelijkheden. Zo kan je eenvoudig (dynamische) playlists aanmaken, songteksten zoeken op het internet en zonder enige belemmering mp3-tags aanpassen. Daarnaast kan het streamen van een KIO-bron en ondersteunt het verschillende backends zoals xine, NMM en MAS. De ontwikkelaars hebben Amarok 1.4.5 naar buiten gebracht en voorzien van de volgende aankondiging en lijst met veranderingen:

Amarok 'Fast Forward' 1.4.5

he Amarok team is proud to announce the sixth release of the successful 'Fast Forward' series.
  • An integrated Shoutcast stream directory.
  • Support for custom labels. Organize your music how you want.
  • Magnatune redownload manager
  • Improved sound quality when using the equalizer with xine.
There are also many improvements in the GUI which make Amarok more sexy and usable than ever.

1.4.5 is last release of the 1.4 Fast Forward that will have new features. Amarok 2.0 development, based on Qt4/KDE4, has already started. Exciting times for the Amarok project - the 2.0 release (perhaps as soon as this summer) will run natively on Linux, OS X and Windows!

We are also going to have a Wiki Cleanup Weekend on Feburary 10th and 11th to bring our documentation up to date. Everyone is invited to join the efforts and rediscover our wiki in #rokymotion on

You also have the chance to meet some members of the Amarok team at the KDE booth at FOSDEM from 24th to 25th February in Brussels.

Nee je hebt nog steeds delen van KDE nodig om het te kunnen draaien. Alleen KDE 4 zal gebruik maken van QT4 en deze is platvorm onafhankelijk waardoor het mogelijk wordt om KDE programma's (zelfs de kicker ed) onder Windows en Mac te draaien en dus ook Amarok maar ook onder Windows heb je delen van KDE nodig. Vergelijk het maar met The Gimp onder Windows deze heeft ook GTK (deel van Gnome) nodig om te kunnen draaien.
Zoals mijn moeder zou zeggen: Wat als we dit allemaal zouden doen?

Om één of andere reden vinden *ubuntu-gebruikers het altijd nodig het linkje te droppen.........
Misschien omdat deze op dit moment de meest populaire in z'n soort is? :z
Ik vind het alleen jammer dat wanneer je gnome gebruikt en het wilt installeren het kde spul wilt installeren
2.0 release (perhaps as soon as this summer) will run natively on Linux, OS X and Windows
betekent dit dat het geen kde meer nodig heeft?
Nee, het betekent dat de kde4 library's ook native onder windows en OSX kunnen draaien en daarmee dan ook amarok
Klopt. Het zal als losse app uitkomen voor windows en OSX. Onder linux was het natuurlijk altijd al onder GNOME of iets dergelijks te draaien, mits oa. de Qt3 toolkit geinstalleerd is.

Amarok 2.0 zal (net als KDE4) op Qt4 gebaseerd zijn.
Voor Qt4 mag (in tegenstelling tot Qt3) vrijelijk (GPL) onder windows en OSX gebruikt worden.
Er komt dus nu KDE/X11 (voor *nix), KDE/Windows en KDE/OSX. Met KDE wordt hier de desktopprogramma's geboeld, dus niet de window- en desktopmanager.
Amarok is een fijne mediaspeler in Linux! Ik gebruik hem ook, een handige optie is dat de codecs van bijvoorbeeld mp3 automatisch worden geinstalleerd (na bevestiging). Dit scheeld een hoop handmatig werk.
amaroK is in Gentoo op dit moment nog Hard Masked. Even in package.unmask "=media-sound/amarok-1.4.5" zetten en eindelijk shoutcast streams in amaroK!
Hoop dat je nu eindelijk eens albumart aan een mp3 kan toevoegen (in de tag zelf dus) en dat de ipod support wederom verbeterd is. Het is onder gentoo al tijden klooien met vernieuwde udev meuk en usb apparaten. Het zou makkelijk moeten zijn met amaroK, met de aankoppel en eject commando's die te specificeren zijn maar in de praktijk heeft het voor mij altijd nog maar mondjesmaat gewerkt.

Verder vind ik het veruit de beste speler/muziekbeheerder die ik ooit geinstalleerd heb.

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
