System boot.png ZIMreader

openZIM project, a free and open source implementation of the ZIM file format. The ZIM file format was created to provide a standard way to make webcontent offline available.

The ZIMreader provided by openZIM is just an example application, free to use and open source. It has been developed under the name "tntzenoreader" in 2007 by Tommi Mäkitalo, the developer of tntnet (and now lead developer of openZIM), to be used on the german Wikipedia DVD.

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

Package: intone
Tested on: Om2009T5

System boot.png Literki 0.0.2-r3

This is a new version of your favourite keyboard. The mechanism for showing/hiding the keyboard has changed, now you show/hide Literki by sliding bottom right corner with your finger. You can configure what distance you need to slide. If you just click the bottom right corner, the click goes through to the application, so it (almost) doesn't affect using other applications when the keyboard is hidden. This update is concentrated on using libfreetype for fonts. Screenshot is available here. Literki configuration file explanation is here. OpenMoko users will need libfakekey as a dependency. Main changes are:

  • it supports Unicode input. Tested only with Polish diacritic signs.
  • it looks much nicer
  • the keys are much more visible when transparent, thus transparency is on by default
  • you can change the font and size

Tested on: Om2009T5

  • 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.
