I am going to Randa / Switzerland

Let the title not betray you – actually I am attending the Multimedia meeting of the KDE Sprint in Randa for some days already. KMix is receiving a major overhaul here. The new features are:

The KMix Sound Menu

  • Sound menu support
  • Labels on Multi-Channel controls, like “Surround Left” or “Center”
  • Media Control: You can control your Media Player from KMix. Read below for details.
  • For the technically interested: A new backend: MPRIS

You can control application volumes from the indvidual Multimedia applications. Also you have playback controls for playing and skipping tracks of the running  Multimedia players. The approach is Cross-Desktop, so you will see Amarok as well as Banshee and xmms2.
