It’s getting colder outside and like in previous years it is time for the Amarok team to look back on the past 12 months. It’s been an astonishing ride including over 4000 commits, a Quick Start Guide and 6 new releases of Amarok.

Now this would not be possible without financial support from our users. This is why we are calling for your support during this year’s Roktober again. We are aiming to raise 5000 Euro to pay for our server and the team’s expenses during development sprints and trade shows. You can help us with that. As a sign of our appreciation for your support we will add donors agreeing to this to the About Dialog of each Amarok release in the next 12 months. Help us Rok the World and get your share of Amarok 😉

You can find more detail about how to participate at

A big Thank You! from the whole Amarok team.

Oh I’m damned, I didn’t see the pyramid in the back.
It really looks damn close to our KA schlosspark with the trees in the front…

Well I have one request and it is …. *roffle* …. proper CUE sheet support. This would make me a donation right a way :-)

@G-Man – what constitutes “proper CUE sheet support” to you? Please write to our list or pop into #amarok to tell us what’s lacking for you. As far as I know, cue sheets are supported if your cue sheet is in the same folder as the track files. See
