Amarok 2.3.1 “The Bell” Released
By on June 1st, 2010

Amarok is one of the best music players available for Linux (and a personal favorite of mine, if I may add). Although is is a KDE application, it has a loyal following even from GNOME users.

Well there is a good news. Amarok 2.3.1, codenamed “The Bell” has been released a few hours ago. Here is a brief list of what it has to offer:

  • Automated Playlist Generator which helps you create playlists based on criteria like song length or file size.
  • Two new applets have been added for the Context View. The Upcoming Events applet shows concerts and events that the currently playing artist is participating in and the Similar Artists applet uses the Last.fm database to show similar artist and makes the ones in your collection directly playable.
  • Cover fetching has seen a lot of improvements and we added support for the new system tray protocol.
  • Improved responsiveness when expanding/collapsing items in the collection browser.
  • Lots of bug fixes!!
