Plasma Media Center, the KDE project to slowly take on the likes of XBMC and provide a nice user-interface for multimedia tasks atop the KDE experience, is up to version 1.2 beta. The 1.2 beta release of Plasma Media Center is packing a number of new features.

KDE Plasma Media Center 1.2 Beta 1 features an easier "All Music" mode, automatic artist and album cover downloading, folder previews for pictures, multiple playlist support, keyboard support for media controls, and refactored common components for media browsers. There's also been other updates to this latest KDE Plasma Media Center software.

Plasma Media Center 1.2 is planned for an official release the week before Christmas (20 December) while a release candidate is aimed at early December. Plasma Media Center 1.2 details are available from community.kde.org while on Red Hat's Sinny Kumari blog are details (and screenshots) on the just-released 1.2 beta.
