Due to not so perfectly alligned release cycles, not wanting to ship a beta version and a few more good reasons Kubuntu Jaunty was released with Amarok 2.0.2. This version is still missing a few features that some users consider vital. We have made huge improvements in Amarok 2.1 beta 1, our latest release, and of course more improvements have been made since then in SVN.
Improvements and features include but are not limited to:
- improved context view
- customizable playlist
- replaygain support
- improved podcasting support
- and more
For more please read the 2.1 beta 1 release notes.
So for everyone who wants to have some of the most loved features back: you can upgrade to Amarok 2.1 beta 1 with packages from the kubuntu-experimental PPA. Be aware that this PPA contains very experimental stuff that can break your system from time to time so you might want to consider deactivating the repository after you installed Amarok.
Please don’t forget to report bugs you find in the beta version at bugs.kde.org so we have a chance to fix them for the final version.
