The Amarok team just released Amarok 2.3.0. It comes with many bugfixes and improvements such as a new funky toolbar and a rewritten file browser featuring much better integration with the rest of Amarok.
Tech Drive-in: "Amarok was my favorite for a long time. I gave a try at the latest Amarok 2.3.1 in Ubuntu, and I have to say, this is impressive work. Amarok is slowly getting back to its past glory and Amarok 2.3.1 is another huge leap."
Since we began seriously working on Amarok 2 more than two years ago, Amarok has come a very long way. Looking back at screenshots of some of the very early incarnations of Amarok 2 can be almost frightening, and it is clear that Amarok 2 has changed much since then. While the Amarok 2.0 release was in no way perfect, it was more importantly a solid foundation to work on, and Amarok 2.1 is already shaping up to be a much more well rounded music manager.
Amarok version 2.2.1 has been the released by the Amarok team. It includes a lot of improvements to podcast handling, much faster collection scanning as well as the ability to automatically update scripts.
