Amarok: Check if the Manual is ready for the 2.7 release

completed by: Mayank Madan

mentors: Myriam Schweingruber

Amarok 2.7 is scheduled to be released just before Christmas and we have a few changes that are not yet documented in the Manual.

Teo new features already are in process of being documented, statistics synchronisation and the Nepomuk collection, but there are other changes, notably in the Configuration dialog that need to be documented and some screenshots updated.

Please refer to the other wiki pages for the style and the menu links. Please also add a [[Category:Amarok2.7]] tag to the page.

Userbase guidelines for page editing: See the right side menu in the wiki, only visible to logged in users. In particular please pay attention to the page elements explanation, requirements for screenshots and editing specifics.

Once your check a page and updated it if necessary, add the tag [[Category:Amarok2.7]] at the bottom of the article.

The task is complete if 20 articles are checked, updated and tagged.

Please document the pages you have worked on with the links to them in a document you upload.
