    openMobile 0.7 is now feature complete

    openMobile 0.7 has been marked as feature complete and is now transitioned to the release cycle. Demo video should be released shortly while beta testing.

    What to look forward to in 0.7:
    • We now use our own tag library based off of TagLibSharp. It supports 27 audio formats, 12 video formats and 8 playlist formats. We also now index 18 different music formats from all major platforms. (list here)
    • Speech recognition now available for vista and xp (in addition to the current win7)
    • New DVD Player plugin
    • Automatic cover retrieval from the internet when indexing and playing music.
    • Battery Support, Wifi Support and Dial up networking support plugins
    • Media Player now gracefully fades music in/out on startup/shutdown and optionally crossfades between songs. Gapless playback support has also been improved.
    • All plugins now run on sandboxed threads which prevents a bug or crash in a plugin from ever effecting the stability of the front end.
    • New native Pandora radio plugin
    • Settings now use an automatic skinning and layout system which ensures a single plugin will always match the styling of the skin being used.
    • Support for TunedContent along with plugins for various radio's
    • Linux support has returned with a brand new OMPlayer for linux
    • Volume control in the UI and per plugin volume control for other plugins
    • Web Browser plugin which allows touch screen friendly browsing and displays websites optimized for use on a touchscreen
    • Garmin MobilePC Plugin
    • All reported bugs and feature requests have been implemented
    • Over 45 Bug Fixes, 35 Major Changes, 49 Additions (changelog here)

    As soon as its ready...
    Were aiming to release with a full compliment of radio plugins. Since multiple developers are working on the various plugins its difficult to get an exact estimate...but it should be very soon.

    I have been away from carputers for about 1 year now.
    After let down after let down with RR and CF being so proprietary, OM is a definitely flame igniter for me. With the addition of Pandora, it being an open source project and stability as a starting point of focus I must say this is probably the most promising project coming from mp3car.com forums in a long time.
    Thank you for your work and I cant wait to get going on my next project... when ever that maybe.

    Oh yeah, I will definitely help to spread the word on this project. I would love to see this grow. I can not believe I missed this one.

    I have been waiting for 0.7 to trial it, and if the GMPC plugin is as good as it sounds, I will be throwing my CF license in the bin.

    Agree with Thunderstick, that the RR and CF setups are either becoming too complex (RR), or too restrictive (CF), openmobile really does sound interesting.

    I like the fact that you have thought about things like skinning from the start, the idea that plugins will use the default skin is a real bonus.

    Looking forward to point 7 guys!
