It’s been a really long time since I released the current stable version of Auralquiz, my music guessing game, and it’s about time for a new release, updated for Qt 5, and with fixes all over the place.
The most notable changes since v0.8.1 are:
- Support for building with Qt 5, which is now the recommended version, since Qt 4 is no longer maintained.
- Many Phonon fixes, which should avoid sound problems.
- Added Galician translation, thanks to Miguel Anxo Bouzada.
- Answering with the keyboard now can be done using the following keys: 1/2/3/4, Z/X/C/V, 7/8/9/0 and U/I/O/P.
Auralquiz is available in the repositories of several GNU/linux distributions. At the time of this post, at least Debian 7 (Wheezy) and newer, Mageia 2 and later, Ubuntu 13.10 and newer, and ALT Linux. Hopefully they’ll have this release packaged soon, either in regular updates or in backports repositories. Thanks to all the great packagers who make this possible! 😉
You can get the code from linux-games.org (old qt-apps.org): https://www.linux-games.org/p/1109384/ or from GNU Savannah: http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/auralquiz/auralquiz-v0.9.0.tar.gz
If you need or want to build from source, check the INSTALL file for details on how to build it and the necessary build-time and runtime dependencies.
