KDE --
While Amarok has not seen a release in years and Juk development not being too vibrant, now there's another new KDE music player option: Elisa.

Developer Matthieu Gallien announced the Elisa Music Player today as a new initiative. Elisa makes use of KDE Frameworks 5, uses Baloo for indexing of music, the Qt5 tool-kit is obviously used, and the KDE VDG has chipped in with their design ideas on this still young music player.

Among the expressed goals for Elisa are being easy to setup, a desire to support online services in the future, satisfying user goals, leveraging UPnP DLNA, hopes for supporting ANdroid and Windows, and more.
