Application Updates

Intone-1.png Intone 0.60

after quite a few tweaks there is the latest version of Intone. You will need mplayer to use Intone. There is a low CPU consuming mplayer-tremor version here. OpenMoko distibution users will need separate version of intone and might need following dependencies:

Changes in this version of intone:
  • hopefully better top bar in playlist vie
  • change priority from gui
  • change playing song icon to play in list
  • fixes to better support logical order when changing from random->normal and vice versa
  • support bluetooth streaming to A2DP sets from intone (__you'll have to pair the headset yourself__)
  • better time display on progress bar
  • even better scan routine (please rescan your songs for the right names to be picked up)
  • some code speedups
  • fixed ui break in album art view with long song names

  • Ben Wilson wrote a wiki page for the un-bricking GTA01 using a simple LPT -> JTAG circuit. It may also work for doing some actual debugging and should be pretty easy to wire up to gta02 as well.
  • David Lanzendörfer has managed to boot OpenMoko on the HTC-Dream with framebuffer console. That means: Android linux kernel + OpenMoko (Angstrom) user space. If someone is interested in participating the development, youre welcome to help. David started writing wiki on installing OpenMoko on HTC-Dream.
  • omgps author, Meng Qingyou has announced moving omgps project to new location at projects.openmoko.org.

Most important and change making mails on the mailing lists, blogs etc.. Coolest hacks, screenshots, themes etc..
