Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Clementine, the Qt port of Amarok 1.4 got a huge list of new features in the latest 0.6 release candidate version.

The most important new features are Ubuntu sound menu integration, smart and dynamic playlists and 2 new info tabs for the currently playing song (lyrics fetched from 17 different websites, statistics, play counts and tags from Last.fm, Wiki from Last.fm) and artist (contains lots of interesting info like photos, biographies from Wikipedia, Last.fm, Amazon and more as well as similar artists).

Other changes in the latest Clementine 0.6 RC: redesigned sidebar, monochrome panel icons, ratings, play counts and skip counts to the library, and remember when a song was last played, Jamendo support, custom Last.fm radio stations as well as a directory of Icecast radio stations that has been added to the Internet tab.

Besides all the cool new features, Clementine also looks better then ever. But don't take my word for it - try Clementine for yourself!

Note: in the second screenshot you see both a panel icon and a sound menu entry for Clemnentine - the panel icon can be disabled from the options.
