jrepin writes "KDE is proud to announce version 2.6 of Amarok music player. While it brings a reasonable set of new features, the focus of this release was on bug fixing and improving the overall stability. The new features are a complete overhaul of the iPod, iPad and iPhone support including solid support for device playlists; transcoding for iPod-like and USB Mass Storage devices; the Free Music Chart service is now activated by default; embedded cover support for Ogg and FLAC files; and album art support for tracks on the filesystem and USB Mass Storage devices."

Won't Even Bother (1)

I gave up on Amarok after 2.0. The new interface was just awful. It was one of my favorite programs and so incredibly easy to use, but 2.0 destroyed what had been good (and really didn't need to).

Then I switched to OS X from Linux and found I had to depend on something as unreliable as MacPorts if I wanted Amarok, which crashed repeatedly on me.

While waiting for some kind of stability or a real OS X release, I found Clementine. After I tested that, and telling my friends, many of them gave up Amarok (on multiple operating systems) for Clementine.

It also seemed, from watching multiple threads on feature request, that the Amarok team was so busy doing what they wanted that they really didn't care much for user requests or needs.
