Amarok 2.3.1 “The Bell” released

We are happy to announce the release of Amarok 2.3.1.

This release brings with it some exciting new features like the Automated Playlist Generator which helps you create playlists based on criteria like song length or file size. This is the start of bringing back the smart playlist feature of Amarok 1 and more.
We have also added two new applets 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 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.
The 2.3.1 release also fixes many bugs, both major and minor, and brings with it many other small improvements that overall help to make the Amarok experience even more enjoyable!

    I read so many good things about Amarok that I finally installed it last week. It ran just fine on my Ubuntu 10.04-driven laptop and I would have used it instead of uninstalling it if only I could get sound from the damn thing. I’m back to using Rhythmbox which works quite nicely, thank you.
