Changes from Version 1.3-beta3:

Removed 'Apply' button from dynamic config, all config options are now hot! (Automatically applied on alteration)
Minimum score changed from 1 to 0. (BR 107944)

HOWTO: install amaroK 1.3-beta2
问：是否需要 1.4 版或更高的 libtag ？
然后下载 amarok1.3 final ：
sudo dpkg -i amarok-1.3_1.3-1_i386.deb libtag1_1.4-1_i386.deb
校订: 我用 kde_3.4.2 ，并编译的是 x86 版本。
校订 2: 修正 dkpg -i 行以与文件名相符。
注：我还没能下载那 amarok-1.3_1.3-1_i386.deb 包！看这里也有一个：
