The amaroK team is proud to announce version 1.2 of the amaroK audio 

Markey, muesli and mxcl were walking along the bypass the other week when
these aliens came down. And they said, "Dudes! Make us the best media-player

XMMS?" and they said (in unison, which was kinda creepy), "Oh come on dudes!
We're aliens, you try pushing 2 pixel square buttons when you have 70-million
dpi screens!". So they put us in a slave-camp and we managed to get a new
version of amaroK out, but we may have done too good a job because now they
want to keep us here forever. Save us! Someone!
