The app's capitalisation was changed to Amarok in June 2006.A new major version of Amarok, version 2.0, was released on December 12, 2008.However UI of Amarok is then a little bit slow, for example scrolling is affected.
The only objection that I also have it the low performance and more or less the high memory usage of Amarok.
For example when unminimizing the window, it is possible to see the interface being (re)painted. Also, is it possible to bring the tabs to the Media Sources layout back?
is a cross-platform free and open-source music player.
Although Amarok is part of the KDE project, it is released independently of the central KDE Software Compilation release cycle.
Actually low performance is the only objection I can have against Amarok.
I recently got used to underclocking my cpu in order to reduce heat and prolong battery life.
I think that it is also more intuitive to use, that's also why browsers use tabs and not something else. Slow work of his interface may depend directly of Qt. id=234463 And pay attention to the comment #6, hope this will help to you.
Like in Amarok 1.4 and some version from 2; or like Clementine (Amarok 1.4 port to Qt 4) though you can of course re-order the dock widgets to make the contextview tabbed with the context browser pane, thereby almost completely cloning the 1.x interface. Will you EVER re-implement playlist filtering like in 1.4? It's available in the collection, so why not the playlist?
Additionally a lot of performance optimization was done in several areas.
