Amarok 2 feature freeze planned for later this month

Filed under
Software

The Amarok developers have been working on a major overhaul that will dramatically reinvent the program's user interface and deliver a lot of really compelling new features. A blog entry published on Friday provides some insight into the latest work that has been done on the music player and reveals that feature freeze and an alpha release are planned for the end of the month.

Recent changes include an update to Amarok's theme, which uses SVG and adopts colors from the user's KDE colorscheme. The new theme looks very polished and will likely blend well with a KDE 4 environment.

The Best Android Phones Coming In 2017

For phone lovers, the Android space is the place to be. Inside the Android Kingdom things move fast and, for the most part, set the goalposts for the rest of the market. Often, what you find in contemporary Android phones eventually makes its way down to iPhones and what few other rivals remain! QHD panels is one example of this; dual-lens cameras and curved OLED displays are others. 2016 was a decent year for Android releases, with strong handsets from all major players. Sales were, once again, dominated by Samsung in the Android sphere (and Apple elsewhere). There were some pretty big developments, however, such as the Galaxy Note 7 disaster and Google entering the fray with its Pixel phones.
