Amarok is THE KDE audio player, a wonderful application that has grown enormously in the last few years. It is clearly a favorite among Linux users and surely we would all like to see it grow better even faster. Roktober is an initiative that Amarok developers put in place so that they can get some help with the inevitable expenses a project of such size requires.
As a high level preview of what's to come, Amarok developers already shared some of the upcoming features/enhancements:
For Amarok 2.4 (planned for early 2011) and upcoming releases we have planned:
* transcoding, so you can transfer files to your media device in the right format
* UPnP support
* Playdar integration
* spectrum analyzer
* completing the Amarok handbook
* many more exciting features and improvements!
If you enjoy Amarok and would like to see it get better and better, think about helping the project via a donation. There are Paypal and Google Checkout links available for your convenience.
