This is the second source-only release for those who had problems compiling Apollo. The configure.sh script has been improved with regards to KDE2 detection and the install.sh script installs apollo-client properly. Now also compiles with gcc 3, thanks to Hannes Mehnert of Gentoo Linux.

This is a source-only release for those who had problems compiling Apollo. The configure.sh script has been improved with regards to QTDIR settings and qmake detection, and some fixes to sourcecode to make it compile on more distributions.

Again, the long overdue version 1.4 is released! Enjoy! New features include playfirst and continue here for advanced playlist handling, remote control similar to the XMMS protocol (client program is included), id3 tag v1 and v2 reading, playlist looping, random mode and playlist searching.

This will be the last version which uses mpg123 for playing music, the next version will use an internal audio system for playback.

Apollo 2.0 has been in the works for a while, so watch this space!

We're no longer in need of a webmaster. Thanks to everyone that offered their help.

We're looking for a webmaster for these pages; the apollloplayer.org domain. You need to know HTML and PHP and knowing databases wouldn't hurt ;-) We already have a simple PHP backend custom-written for this site. You could either install that one, maybe continue developing it, choose a different one that's already out there etc. It's pretty much up to you.

Please contact me if you're interested.

Apollo 1.0 was selected as "Editor's Pick" at SoftLandIndia! We can, however, do better. Apollo 1.1pre is currently in CVS and is going through the final testing stage. Stay tuned!

Apollo 1.0 is out! You can grab it as binary or source in either .gz, .bz2, or RPM format. Go to the downloads page now:


Enjoy, and let us know what you think of it.

While we have your attention: We need a webmaster for this site. More specifically, we need a PHP programmer to write a backend. If you think you're capable, drop us a line.

Updated the screen shot.

A week after the feature freeze, Apollo 1.0 is now considered complete in terms of implementation. Although Apollo has been extensively tested already, we will hold it back a little longer just to make sure we didn't overlook anything.

The screen shot has been updated. In addition, a screen shot of the original Apollo for Windows has been put up so you can compare if you wish to.

The Apollo development is going ahead rapidly. A feature freeze will be introduced on Sunday, the 3rd of December, 23:59 in preparation for the 1.0 release of Apollo. Apollo is fully usable and stable so only minor polishing is likely to be done. Unfortunately, the SourceForge statistics are not working, so you won't be able to see all the effort that has been put into Apollo.

Apollo 1.0 should be out Real Soon Now :-) Check back here often, or better yet, subscribe to the announcement mailing list.

Apollo player now has its own domain: www.apolloplayer.org. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I think this may be a problem with SourceForge. Also, a screen shot is up. Click on the link in the top right corner.

For the impatient, the source code is now in CVS. It requires Qt 2.2.1 (or later) and mpg123. If this doesn't say you anything, don't worry: Apollo is not really usable yet. We will make an official, easy-to-download, easy-to-install version available when it is usable. You can be notified about Apollo releases by joining the announcement mailing list.

Welcome to the Apollo home page! Apollo is a no-bullshit music player providing you with what you really need. A minimalistic, functional, playlist oriented interface is the core of Apollo. Currently, Apollo is only a frontend to mpg123, but this may change in the future.
