Amarok is a versatile music player for Linux/Unix platforms. A couple of months back I had reviewed this versatile music player which has a lot more features than just playing music.
The next avatar of Amarok is Amarok2 which is going to see a number of enhancements such as :
- A better integrated play list
- Artists can be associated with more than one genre
- Purchasing from Magnatune now supports using gift card codes as an alternative to credit cards.
- A OpenGL support for album selector - I may add that anything related to OpenGL at present requires you to install the proprietary graphics drivers of Nvidia or ATI depending on the graphics card you use.
- The big central area has just been switched to using Plasma, the new desktop and widget technology in KDE4.
