Ben NanoNote vs. Zipit Z2

2011-09-26 10:44
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.

Gmu 0.8.0BETA1 released

2011-06-08 13:18
Here is a new Gmu release with some new (long awaited) features. The two most notable features are internet streaming audio support and the graphical spectrum analyzer. Just like with the 0.7.0 series I start the 0.8.0 series with a beta release, mostly because there were many changes to the code base.

Gmu (track info view with spectrum analyzer)

Changes since the last release include:
  • Internet streaming audio support on network-enabled devices (for web radio, currently mp3 only)
  • Graphical spectrum analyzer
  • Support for PLS playlist files
  • Fixed time display bug for very long playtimes
  • Window icon for platforms running Gmu in a windowed environment
  • By default Gmu's file browser now advances to the next file when adding a file (optional)
Probably less interesing for the ordinary user:
  • Configurable verbosity on stdout (with the -v flag)
