It  is  my favourite KDE application at the moment. I love so many of  its
album  management features, but I just wish it was slightly more stable. I
still  use XMMS at work, but it requires quite a bit of manual handling of
playlists  or  occasional "Jump to track". After AmaroK, XMMS  just  seems
like  a waste of time and a significant step back. I raised that as an is-
sue  in the XMMS users mailing list recently and it is still unknown  when
XMMS 2 will come out. With Amarok, it sometimes feels like XMMS betrayal.
