no not much happened in the last weeks I think.

But I see some (possible) "initiatives":
-) Amarok KF5 port is going forward, but no idea if afterwards a new and
more modern UI can be implemented without much refactoring
-) the idea of adding a Plasma UI to VLC (no idea how much different
that is from your idea, but the more we can reuse the better)

Hurray for going forward with having a music player, but I think only
accounts are very important. But they can be added later.
