WTF?

Please, remove this cluttered sidebar. Why? take this:

If switched to 'Music' the sidebar takes always the half of my screen width, buttons are always wider than the sidebar width. What a mess!
How many lines do they draw there? First there is the splitter, then a line from the tab widget, then a sunken line indicating that a nother widget is encapsulated and depending on the skin another line is appearing. Makes 4 lines next to each other. Please, remove ALL of them! Just take the plain window background and place the context information flat on the pane,.
Certain information like the current song title, its length, its album icon and probably a short history should be visible always without the need to make thee cluttered sidebar visible - take juK for a very good UI study,
There are just too many tabs in the sidebar. How may someone add tabs to a sidebar? Two contradictious concepts! Either tabs OR a sidebar! And even a QToolBox encapsulated in the "context" bar would be better. The tabs take just too much space and let the bar look ugly (and need two clicks for access!)


Just my 2 cents

I dont like the icon set tath I have found on last release, with respect for who works on it I say "hey monochromatic blue icons?what is this?? I really think tath you can make a better work,amarok it deserves it.
Finally a question @moodbar, it will return @ home?:)
I have a AMD1800+ and I spent time to create the modbar specrum on every single song, I think moodbar was a great thing. :)

I'm glad they stuck with the "classic" layout for this recent release. The "new" layout is not as near as desirable as the old layout.

If the "new" release becomes hard coded and there is no option to revert layout to the "classic" layout, I will (sadly) have to switch to a different player (juK comes to mind). I sure hope I don't have to...

amaroK is a great, great player (superb, fabulous), and I like it because of its flexible layout, not because of all the "features" for last.fm and the like. If you want to add additional options, that is fine, but its like they say, "don't fix it if it isn't broke" and this applies here!

CHANGES
- Disabled INotify support due to stability problems
- Removed Moodbar
- Delay the layout change until 2.0. The 1.4.1 release again features the classic

Beta 1 is better then final version! It runs perfect in my suse 10.1 ;)

unfortunatelly, guru reposotory has an earlier (beta) version, in which layout wasn't modified. I haven't seen a suse package with the latast 1.4.1 final version (even rpm.pbone.net has that old beta package) but you can alway use app sources or svn to get the lates version.

Damn, I'm disappointed with the current (1.4.1) layout!!! How do I change it back to pre-1.4.1 version? I really hate the way my amaroK looks.

Hmm... looks like I installed some strange version from the "guru.suse" repository. The installation from another repository solved the "problem". Sorry for my bitching!

In 1.4 the artists included only in "various artists" compilations wear not shown in collection as separate artists. In 1.4.1, they are shown in "various artists" AND as separate artists. I have a lot of SoundTracks so my collection is a mess now (lots of artists I don't care with only 1-2 entries). Could we have an option to revert it?

Yes this messes up the collection view. Please make the old behaviour available again, otherwise I'm stuck with 1.4.0. Does anyone of the devs read the comments here, or should I file a bug ?

gapless playback with the xine engine stutters and jumps to the next song too early, especially with ogg files - anyone have any ideas?

Happens here, too. Mainly with FLAC, but also with OGG Vorbis ones.

Just vanted to say that as far I am concern, I don't like the new layout. Same reason as other person mentioned. I think it is okay to keep this layout if you provide an option to revert for the old one. New icons themes is good. I hate default kristal :)

Any way, thank you for your work!

i propose removing the iPod from the splash screen, because the iPod is a symbol for Digital Restrictions Management.
the iTunes and iPod hype is harmful for all users of free software, we should not support it.

Is there any way to switch the Context browser to the old style? I personally do not like the new one. I used to see my playlist and the context view... now I see a half of both. Both these contain vertical lists of songs and therefore are imho not suitable for this new layout.

mmm...if I must tell the true, I don't like that much the new layout, for the same reasons that Radek sayed.
Also I find the new icon theme a little too black and white (well...blu and white). This make me prefer the crystal (kde) theme.
The one I like most is anyway your costum theme in 1.4.0...more crystal like (so more consistent with kde default icon theme) in my opinion. Err Am I the only one? :|
Anyway, even if I reverted to 1.4.0, amarok is still by far the best audio player I tried and I will alway say thank you for this. :)

Agreed. How about placing the collection browser on top instead (using three or a configurable amount of ListViews) like it is possible in iTunes:

You can't switch back to the old layout. We're experimenting with this new layout, and collecting user feedback and ideas. In the end we will decide if we're going to keep it or not.

hi, I just installed Amarok 1.4.1, but I have the same problem I had in SVN... It can't play Flac Audio files, I have been told that it is a problem with xine, yet 1.4 can play FLACs and it uses the same engine, please fix, FLACS are one of the highest qualities of Audio, it would be a shame if Amarok coulden't play them, thanks, your doing a great job.
