Where do I find documentation?

Asked by Francis J. Lacoste on 2009-04-02

I just upgraded to Jaunty Beta from Hardy.

The new Amarok 2.0.2 is very different than then 1.4 series. The 'Help' is empty and all the online guides I can find are about the 1.4 version. Is there any documentation available on how 2.0.2 is different.

I'm especially interested in how the new dynamic playlist are supposed to work.

These are the official pages:

This is about dynamic playlists:

Thanks Cl@ude, the Wikipedia page gives a good overview of the feature, but I was looking for more some user-level documentation.

Thanks Craig, but I had already found these and most of these are still about the 1.4 version (especially the playlist article).

After some googling, the best description of the new dynamic playlist I could find were these two blog articles:

http://amarok.kde.org/blog/archives/713-Weekly-Update,-Secret-Plans-Divulged,-c.html

http://amarok.kde.org/blog/archives/767-Introducing-Fuzzy-Biases.html

(That last one gives a very precise idea of how the feature is supposed to work, and give the meaning of these slidebars.)
