    Continuing Development

    I recently stumbled across this frontend and I must say that it seems to be a really simple FE and I agree with most of the comments made reagarding this FE that many of the FE's out there are too "clunky", over bloated software. I am in no way a C# developer; however, I do know VB and I think I could probably pick up on the C# fairly quickly. Personally I would like to see Freeway Ultra continue to grow and from what I am reading it is for all intensive purposes dead.

    I am willing to help in development; however, I won't have the time to do it completely by meself. I have downloaded the source code and tend to jump in headfirst. It would be great if a couple others are willing to take the reigns along side of me.

    So what do you think?

    Hey Alex,

    Just to warn you, the source code I found to download wasn't the newest available (As I mentioned in my other thread). As far as I know, Oeri has not made the newest code available yet. (I'm still waiting to hear back from him).

    Well I have 0.7.214... I don't know if that is the latest but that is what was listed in this thread.

    I have been reading through the source and to my amazement I am picking it up fairly quickly. Been kind of playing and breaking if you will. Seems fairly straight forward. If you find out something more regarding the version let me know. If you are going to contribute code as well that would be great. We all just need to be singing from the same sheet of music that is all.

    Looking forward to working with you.

    Yeah, the latest version is "Alpha 2 Release" "Version 0.7.219"

    I think think 219 was released just a few days later than 214, had some bug fixes and i think it added playlist support. I really hope somebody has a copy of 219 so we don't have to take a step backwards to begin moving forward.

    In the words of Homer Simpson... Do'oh!!!!!

    Well I have been working with 214 and I think it is all making sense to me now. Which is scary... But it explains why my playlist does not work! Either we wait or move foreward with what we have. Either way I would like to start making headway on this very soon.

    Is oeri still tweaking this? I have the source linked at the beginning of this post and wondered if the source for the newer version was knocking about as I really like the front end and would like to take it further
