    I agree, this front-end looks great. I am so happy that you are putting so much work into it. You should be extremly proud of what you have so far. amazing, and it is coming along so quickly, and getting better every day.

    yeah as long as it flows with the music i dont think many people will care. The CD cover is a nice touch, from current use on my mini at night though I think there needs to be some way to tell it that it is night time so the brighter visulatizations arent used. just an option though.

    Finally got a chance to look at it last night. Hopefully I will remember to drop in on my Mini when I go home tonight so I can play with it on the way.

    Some ideas:

    1) How about a clock option that can be turned on so that it is on every view?

    2) How about the ability to control what is on the front screen (maybe even the "dashboard" try too)? For example, i'll never use Movies or Photos so i'd like to either promote something from the tray or add a new App/Icon (ala Calculator and DVD Player where it spawns an external App).

    Looks really good though. Thanks for the hard work.

    Hey guys

    As you know, AMP hasn't been ready for an actual 800x480 screen yet. Well, in the middle of the night I figured something out, and this morning I implemented it and it seems like it's working (alas, as always, I can't test it)

    The next version I upload should been full-screen capable, able to run on the 800x480 screens! It looks pretty neat now when you run it, and it gives a feel how it will be in the car.

    The next version will have a few cosmetic changes, and better support for the nicer visuals. I think since the visuals relate so much to personal taste I'll make a way for you (in the config menu) to turn some visuals on/off, so that you never have to see the ones you don't like.

    Oh, and since running it in full-screen, I finally added the shutdown menu (sleep, shutdown, restart, log out, exit AMP)

    Also last night I figured out a really neat way to do the OSK, so I'll have to get some work in on that. Probably wont be until after tuesday (1 week -- I have three tests coming up). So I'll get this full screen version cleaned up and uploaded maybe today or tomorrow. Just so you can see what it looks like, etc

    - Gotto go!

    Sigh. I finished the OSK today. It actually functions *really* well. I made it use almost the entire screen so it will be really easy to use. It has essentially all the necessary keys from the keyboard.

    I just need to hear back from Jakob regarding the graphics for the web view, and I can throw it all together and have that functional as well.

    It's *really* looking nice now that it blankets the screen. One nice thing about designing for a specific resolution is that you have total control over everything. No weird scalability issues, etc. Just *exactly* what you want.

    Once the web browswer is in, it's essentially a fully functional front end. Just a few tiny things here and there need work. I consider the music unit basically complete - playlists, visuals, etc, all in there. The movies unit is functional. Pictures & albums are functional, etc.

    (as i wrote that I just realized a few things lol.. still a lot more to do)
