Amarok 2.6 Released! Enjoy great iPod support & fixes all over the place

Finally, after endless weeks of waiting, the beast in the form of Amarok 2.6.0 has been released to the wild!
This release is a bit special to me because it is the first one to include a significant contribution from me - most notably the totally rewritten iPod support. I must say thank here to everyone who tested it in the beta phase; your bug reports helped to polish it to otherwise unachievable level for the final release.

My other personal favourites of this release include transcoding at more places and crucial bug fixes so that Amarok doesn't loose your ratings and stuff when it doesn't have to. This is just one item of the multi-page long list of fixed bugs.

In short, Amarok 2.6 shines like never and is an absolute must for you. :-) Do you like it? Me and other awesome Amarok & KDE volunteer hackers will meet in Switzerland's Randa to code, discuss and plan immersely, please consider donating to help us cover the expenses. Thanks!


  1. Does this mean that I'll finally be able to retire Amarok 1.4 for handling podcasts for my ipod? :)

  2. Excellent, can't wait for the new version. The changelog looks really good. Thank you!

  3. Sad news for you, podcasts is the only bigfer thing that remains for Amarok 2.7. :-|
