My little Countdown Timer application is in need of serious attention - there are a number of features I want to add to it, so I thought it would be a good point to do a new release and draw a line under the current form.

That means a new build for Zaurus (Sharp ROM) and also a Linux x86 AppImage added to the Mac and Windows builds. The only visible difference is I added an "overrun" feature: sometimes you want to count down to an event but keep the timer running so you can see how much time passed since the alarm.

The Zaurus version runs everything in a single thread so if you choose a long sample as the alarm sound then the overrun time won't be very accurate - one of the reasons why the code needs a serious re-write.

Planned features:

1. Improved GUI
2. Multiple concurrent alarms
3. Multiple stage alarms, e.g. count down 2 minutes, alarm, count down 30 seconds, alarm, etc

I have some other interesting ideas but I don't know how they will develop.

At this time I will split development of Zaurus and Desktop versions; I don't know how much work will go into the Zaurus version - it's not as if I have a lot of people asking me for updates.
