Application Updates

It's a litle gtk python script that searches the geocaching.com site for caches near your current position or a user specified lattitude and longitude and add the cache as a poi in tangogps.
The script can now:
  • get gps location from phone
  • user can manually set location
  • user can specified range
  • script can download matching geocaches and add as poi
  • read geocaching.com username and password from configuration file threaded gtk and downloading - but unfortunately not searching unicode support.
  • gui input for username and password
it only tested it on shr unstable.
At the new releas , you can play the wav files you have recorded with voicenote (or other wav files), and go back the the 1st choice dialog (record or play?) after each action.

  • moko 11 considered to be official
Moko11 is considered to be "official". So far, received reports indicating that moko11 did indeed solve the problems it's supposed to address (i.e., lost wakeups and flow control.)
The developer now also like to know if anything has gone wrong after installing moko11, e.g., if the changes in IO1 handling have introduced new wakeup problems. Everyone who's tried moko11-beta to please reply, either to the list or to Werner in private.
About the draft of moko11, the draft is here.
  • Help developing www.opkg.org
Opkg.org needs some developers to develop some features.
For Opkg.org was not updated for two months, but there are still some features needed, like a better comment system with email notifications, for example. Tobiasdecided to publish the opkg.org source code, by this way, anyone who want to help making www.opkg.org even better than it is today, feel free to contact Tobias.


Event News

  • Munich Stammtisch was a nice meeting as well!

And: it will be repeated in 1-2 months!
