Amarok 2.1

Postby clockie » Sun Jun 14, 2009 12:24 pm

Does anyone know why in linux mint 6 there is still the amarok 1.4 in the repos. Do you know when they are going to upgrade it?

Amarok 2 wasn't released until the very end of last year, so didn't make it into ubuntu's repos in time for intrepid's release, and hence is not available in felicia. It is however available in gloria (based on jaunty). Such a major architectural change to an app (like amarok 2) is unlikely to be backported, as it would damage system stability, and draw in a load of dependencies which would also damage system stability.
