Amarok 2 screenshot peview! :)

**Update**
Added some Amarok on windows screenshots :)

For those who don't know about Amarok, Amarok 2 is the free cross platform music player, with support for album art, lyrics, Wikipedia and last.fm integration.

Amarok 2 is not out yet as it is going to be released with KDE 4.2 sometime in January 2009 before KDE 4.2 :) in 1 to 3 months, Amarok team released beta 2 few days ago, Amarok 2 is cross platform i.e. available for Mac, Windows & Linux (:D). As my Arch installation was screwed up so I'm on Kubuntu, they have a nice repository to try nightly builds of Amarok/KDE4 (project neon), following screenshots are bit old as they are taken from my Arch Installation.

It supports Last.fm integration, Jamendo, Magnatune, Shoutcast Radio service,Mp3tune service etc...

the best feature I like about Amarok2 is Dynamic Playlist.

for collection and statistics it uses MySQL embedded


Lyrics script fetches lyrics as soon as you play the song




Internet Services:

Last.fm




Shoutcast!



Dynamic Playlists:






About Amarok ;P

Amarok2 on Windows

working pretty good, no problems encountered so far.. taking in mind the beta state of this software, it works very well!


Using Oxygen style




surely it lacks many features compared to Amarok 1.4 but Amarok 2 looks promising and there are many unique features that makes Amarok 2 users special ;)

Thank you very much for the nice review. We are doing our best to make Amarok 2 the best piece of software out there and reading nice reviews certainly helps us stay motivated :)

Just a small correction: We are releasing independent of the main KDE programs. This means we are very likely to publish Amarok 2.0 before KDE 4.2. Likely sometime in the next 1 to 3 months.

Cheers
Lydia, Amarok community manager

You actually succeeded breaking Arch?
I couldn't in the past 5 years now.

Anyway, a nice preview. I always used to like JuK better, and probably also will in the future. Amarok is a great project, it just has so many features that I get confused using it.

But with Amarok2 closing it's release, it's probably time to take a look again. The last version I had was simply not usable at all (due to the reason that it didn't even start - what's quite a while ago).

Getting Started with Rancher & Kubernetes

During my time working at Azoi (a startup), I was responsible for maintaining Gitlab for my team along with various other self-hosted internal services. When I first setup Gitlab in 2013, it was quite a task, as setting it up would involve configuring various services using provided scripts and a lot of luck. Fortunately, I found Bitnami Gitlab package to make that process easier. However initial setup is one thing and keeping up with the latest releases was a nightmare.

Fast forward to 2016, I joined eInfochips as Solutions Consultant. Where one of my responsibilities was to modernize development workflow and encourage DevOps culture. It made sense to use Gitlab specially for Gitlab-runner and since this was a fresh setup, I explored few options to setup Gitlab, I found that Gitlab monthly releases were now published as Docker images. So I decided to use Gitlab docker image to host gitlab-ce internally. This time around, the experience was very different, initial setup and upgrading…
