KIO Zen is a frontend to the libnjb library. It uses KDE's IO Slave technology to display and alter your jukeboxe's content. However it does not implement the standard slave API. See kionjb if you want something like this.

KIO Zen offers a user interface via HTML pages. Think of it as your jukebox has some kind of a web server built-in. Enter " zen:/ " into your Konqueror and surf your jukebox.

Here are some key features of "KIO Zen":
Hardware information like owner, version and disk status
Browse your stored music as artist or album view
Delete, upload or download artists or albums
Upload from CD or local music archive
Download to local music archive

KDE 3.3
libnjb 2.0
libusb 0.1.10
libid3 3.8

What's New in This Release:
KIO Zen did always scan the upload archive the first time "::upload" was selected after startup. With large archives this took quite some time. With no changes made to the archive this is very annoying. KIO Zen uses a cache file, now. However changes to the archive from any software other than KIO Zen are not detected. You have to reload explicitly.
