Amarok 3.0.1 released

Sunday, 2 June 2024  |  The Amarok Development Squad

The Amarok Development Squad is happy to announce the immediate availability of Amarok 3.0.1, the first bugfix release for Amarok 3.0 "Castaway"

3.0.1 features a number of small improvements and bug fixes, the oldest fulfilled feature request dating back to 2010 this time. Wikipedia applet, UI strings, and playlist generation and collection filtering are among the components that have received multiple improvements in this release. The efforts to both further polish the Qt5/KF5 version, and keep doing clean-up and preparations that bring a Qt6/KF6 version closer, have been ongoing and will continue.

Changes since 3.0.0

  • Added an option to copy image to clipboard in Wikipedia applet, and a clickable notification if a non-Wikipedia link was clicked.
  • Added an option to select if track's artist is shown for entries under various artists / different album artist in context browser (BR 276039, BR 248101)
  • Indicate which search option is active in Wikipedia applet (BR 332010)
  • Amarok now depends on KDE Frameworks 5.78.
  • Improve strings in user interface (incl. BR 343896, BR 234854)
  • Reduce CPU usage by minimized/hidden analyzer (BR 390063) and other components.
