Gmu 0.9.0 released

2013-02-15 22:06
It's been a long time, but here I am, back with a new Gmu release.

Gmu with default theme with new nice large font

Gmu 0.9.0 comes with the lots of changes (and some bug fixes). Some of the most important ones are:
  • A much nicer large font (Pandora default and compo themes, pixeled by hand :)
  • Some additional characters in both large and small fonts (including the µ character due to popular request)
  • A new ncurses terminal text frontend for Gmu (usable over the network!)
  • Experimental WebSocket browser interface (also usable over the network)
  • Support for Joystick axis control in SDL frontend (to support devices like the Caanoo, that come with analog controls exposed as a joystick)
  • The current playmode is now always visible in playlist view in the SDL frontend
  • Gmu has been changed such that it uses UTF-8 encoding internally for all text
  • Support for building Gmu statically has been added (in addition to the default configuration where Gmu's frontends and decoders are build as runtime loadable plugins)

Ben NanoNote vs. Zipit Z2

It's been a while since my last entry, so here is a little something. As requested, here is a little Ben NanoNote vs. Zipit Z2 comparison.

Zipit Z2 and Ben NanoNote

The machines have both a very similar shape and size and their specifications are also not too different. While the Ben NanoNote was meant to be Open Source hardware the Zipit Z2 was built as an instant messaging device for teenagers and was then repurposed by the hacker/free software community as a more or less general purpose Linux computer.
