Any release notes so we'll know what new features/bug fixes to look forward to?

Who'll be the first to try this out? I'm quite happy with beta3 right now, there're no major show-stoppers and apart from a flaky bluetooth when doing obex transfers it pretty much does everything that I want (for the moment!)

Is it based beta3 or beta4 based? It would be better to wait one day more and write a bit more information.

Hey thats nice. Never expected a new version so soon. Thats great news.

I will try it later on today, no matter if it is for "extreme testers" biggrin.gif only or still based on beta3. A beta4 based release with bugfixes would be really nice though.


No matter how it works: Great work sashz!

Thank you!

Lol and I JUST got beta3 working pretty much how I like it.

Like somebody asked previously...is this for "extreme testers" or is it a somewhat-stable release?

Thanks,
Frank

Like nearly everyone else, I'm on a nicely setup beta3. Beta4 made me nervous smile.gif. in fact i gave up on pdaXrom for most of the summer. I realize that you warned us that beta4 was an early release and for extreme testing only. Still, I think i want to know more about whatI'm getting into before i trash a perfectly good beta3 setup.

What is it?
edit: I take it based on the downloads that it is a uboot 2.6 release....

video optimizations?

4gig sd card support?

what is still a problem?

settings widgets working?

I really like pdaXrom, and I have been looking forward to a solid uboot/2.6 release. is this it? I've also been looking forward to a rerolled patched up beta3 (so new installs won't take quite so much tweaking). Is that what this is? I fear another Beta4 experience. is it likley to be one of those?

Oh wow! Great news!

Sashz: I see you now have a release for 'sl-cxx00' - does that include the c3000? Strictly speaking it should do but I know in the past pdaX was just released for all the other cxx00 models except c3000.

Hopefully the c3k is no longer a second class machine in the pdaXrom world!

EDIT: Even worse, looks like it could be just for Akita. Tell me I'm wrong (truthfully!) please!

EDIT2: I'm a bit more hopeful now as it would seem this new cxx00 release installs on the c3200.

Apart from the possibility of c3000 support I'm also very curious to see if any progress has been made with the cxx00 video driver. Of course that would probably be no use unless mplayer knows how to make use of it.

Hi Sashz, I have some complaints, with the hope to be usefull.

I bought my Zaurus, the SL-C860, because I knew of pdaXrom.
PdaXrom has been an awesome project, fast and active, and I have been very happy with every release I tried.
Then came beta1 and so on.

I have to undestand if you all, developers, have the will to continue development not only for newer Zauruses, but also for mine. You made me used to amazing releases; now every release is a step more behind for my 860, since everyone is developing and compiling for the last betas while older "stable" revisions are outdated.

I think that feeling the need to change my zaurus for one of the newest would be a defeat for the project.
Maybe I'm wrong, and also Cxx00 releases aren't that stable these days... but I read posts of users so happy of their latest beta...

Maybe the problem is that you haven't a 860 or 760 to test releases on?
Really, I don't want to bother you... you all are hard working, and I didn't either donate a cent till now. I just want to know some more about project status and future.

Thank you, I'll keep trying releases hoping to make my Zaurus a bit productive.

Bye

I think it is a little early for that to be decided since it has only been out for less then a day. rolleyes.gif

Based on the fact that someone has already bricked their Z installing it; I would say it may not be stable. biggrin.gif

Hopefully, someone proves me wrong on this. wink.gif

It looks nicer... but still holds the same bugs that I noticed in beta4... I will work on some fixes for the small things I noticed... and post back with anything I find... my main thing is working on some of the settings apps... going to test out the whole "fltk" thing... then XFCE!

agreed, the fltk config applets will be a big gain for the 2.6 versions

Any C3000 owner had the balls to try installing this yet to see if its possible?

Anyone tried mplayer or can report on the state of the cxx00 video driver?
