Announcing version 1.4.1 of the Amarok 'Fast Forward' series

Scientists have discovered a new species, a species that doesn't eat, doesn't
sleep, and doesn't socialize. They have named this species Amarok developers.
These developers have been hard at work preparing version 1.4.1 of world's
"fastest" forwarding media player in a small Netherlands town, Annahove. 

In Amarok 'Fast Forward' 1.4.1 we introduce native support for Last.FM radio
streams, including advanced features known from the Last.FM player. In
addition Amarok's custom icon theme is completely finished. Users who tested
out the 1.4.1 beta probably noticed the completely renovated UI design. After
careful evaluation of feedback from our users, we have decided to delay the
layout change until 2.0. The 1.4.1 release again features the classic and
proven Amarok layout! 

New Features:
* Support for Last.FM streams
* LibVisual 0.4 supported and required
* Great new icon theme by Vadim Petrunin
* Support for custom scoring algorithms, via scripts
* Creative Nomad Jukebox support
