    I haven't seen any crashes at all.
    Yes, that's something we still need to decide on.
    The current skin adds the touched file to the playlist. (You can add the whole
    folder with the top-right button on the Library screen. & note to self: still need
    to modify the texts to accurately represent their functions)

    But if you want to start the file immediately, there is no option for that yet.
    I'm thinking to make this an option using an extra property for the library browser object.
    It can then be modified in the skin file. Another option is to make it a global setting.
    Is this a viable solution (first one is best I think)?

    I've encountered the shutdown too, last testdrive. I think it has something to do with
    the timing of releasing objects and clearing stuff up. The dev-machine doesn't have
    this issue, but this is a dualcore (win7-x64) machine. The virtual-machine (configured as
    single-core, XP-x86) also doesn't seem to have any issues, but the actual CarPC does (
    which is also a single-core, XP-x86). At least it is repeatable on this machine, it makes
    debugging a bit easier.. (still thanks for checking and reporting ofcourse!)

    How about adding the chosen file to the head of the playlist? Then you get the best of both worlds: it's added to the playlist, and it starts playing immediately.

    Thanks for your input!

    Sounds like a nice solution, but I have to check if the Winamp-API's support inserting items
    at the top of the playlist. (not sure, but I think it doesn't support that function)
    Previously, when you selected a single file, it cleared the playlist and started playing the single
    item.

    If Winamp supports inserting at the top, I'll modify CarMa to make use of that.
    Otherwise, I'll probably let it clear the playlist and start the single item.
    ( but this is a bit dangerous, if you just prepared a big playlist and touched a
    single item by accident, the whole playlist is cleared :s )

    So, I've been very busy working on CM since the last post.
    I have something nice to upload tonight!

    Some of the major updates/improvements:
    • Speedfan integration
    • Two UI controls: IconBar and Slideshow
    • Garmin Mobile PC (very) basic integration
    • Back/PgUp/PgDown are working again
    • USB device detection
    • And.. last but not least, there's a configuration-application now!
    • Fixed the up/down and back buttons on the music-browser screen


    Some of the almost finished features:
    • Generic application integration (is the base for the GMPC integration, but too specific now)
    • Videoplayer



    The build is not online yet, I'm currently preparing it for availability tonight.

    I've uploaded another build.
    It removes the dependency on the cloak utility to "embed" Garmin.

    I've also added functionality to easily personalize the skin a bit.
    You can configure the images within the settings, but I haven't got
    around to include it in the skin yet. (probably next build it will)

    Enjoy!

    Minor update uploaded. Personalization and plugin-management is possible
    through the settings app. You can choose your own wallpaper and car-logo
    (no lib included, sorry). If you leave these settings empty, the skin default
    will be used. Plugins can now be disabled from loading. Fixed a few bugs other bugs.

    Just letting you know, enjoy!

    Thanks! I really hope you guys like it, it has been quiet last few weeks.
    But according to the download-count you guys should

    And yeah, it's going great! The framework is very fast, lightweight and stable. We're very
    happy with that.
    But I'm not sure what to start working on next, I'm currently optimizing and fixing minor bugs.
    I guess it will be the video part of the application, unless someone has a great idea.
    Some of the major items which are coming eventually are f.i. animations,
    allowing VB and C plugins, a weather plugin and OBD-II communications.

    An ambitious project, still going great since the redesign of the framework.
