Update - FreeICE Beta 3 coming soon
« on: September 18, 2012, 05:55:11 PM »
ok.. since we have a couple of reported bugs in Beta 2 + a few things I'm not happy about I've made a start on Beta 3 :-)

So far...

Fixed - Mediabrowser scroll bar was letting the list go off the end.
Fixed - Mediaplayer hidden traffic camera button on the listup button.
Fixed - Weather icons not updating
Fixed - 64bit now runs, my fault as I had changed the compile details
Updated - DABmonkey plugin was making FreeICE pause for a millisecond. (complete re-write)
Updated - Moved the gmail settings out of the main settings.ini and it now uses a simple password encryption.
Updated - Gmail setting now from settings menu :-)
Updated - Gmail notification bar made slimmer so it shows over gps screen
Updated - Inet (weather) plugin to save the icons to a file rather than trying to load them directly from the internet.

no additions this time it seems.

As always more to come....

Let me know before you release Beta3 so I can get any updated Fuelprices and Trafficcams SWI files to you.

Cheers

Will do fella, also need to have a chat about plugin.xml in the skin folder as this stops new plugins from showing in the settings screen which means the user then has to go and find it and remove it. Maybe there is some other way to acheive what you wanted.

I don't think it's my doing.

It's certainly not what I wanted, it was added by carputer and El to stop all plugins being loaded (I think because there was an issue with one of their plugins causing FI to not work properly).

after the hard workers have gone to bed and the testers have now risen to tackle another day :)

good to hear B3 is on its way. with some of the bugs in FI B2 did you still want it reported in Flyspray?

Step closer.. few things fixed and a couple changed :-)

I need to do some serious testing now.. Beta 3.. more of a bug fix I think.

Just a heads up something i noticed that still persists even in beta 2. the search function, it works but when i click the song it plays something from the current playlist in the position that i click. If needed i can make a vid of it .
Spec

Hi Morpheus,

I've fixed the db search now :-) Some background work had been done on the plugin and missed enabling a variable in FI's core.

I've also moved a few things about. The background / logo folders are now back in with the skin and the apps folder is now in the root of FI. The settings.ini has been updated.. seems to be working a bit quicker now.

Will put beta 3 together and release in a couple of hours
