    I propose we instate Jirka Jirout as the official forum stripper. With all the teasing he does around here, he surely deserves it

    So OK, here you go, the first public preview:

    http://www.qcar.nl/software/QCar.release.1.38.zip

    Most of the modules that make sense without hardware are included, the only limit is that the app will quit after 10 minutes.

    Before you run it, you need to go to terminal and choose the appropriate screen resolution by executing this command:

    Code:
    defaults write cz.ocs.QCar ScreenSize 800,480
    Alternatively you can use "640,480" and "800,600" as the value. If you want to use e-mail reader, make sure you read the enclosed documentation. The rest should be pretty easy to figure out: everything can be controlled using arrow keys.

    To use GPS receiver (NMEA compatible) you need to do this in terminal:

    Code:
    defaults write NSGlobalDomain nl.qcar.gpspath /dev/usbserialX
    where the path to device is of course whatever you use.

    There is also one test module, that does not do anything useful, but it is more like a place for showing all the different GUI widgets and low-level functions.

    To betatesters: we will post another build probably tonight with some extra info on color schemes and other improvements.

    If you mean the full turn-by-turn navigation, then it is not yet ready for public testing. You can however connect your GPS and see your position on the map using Google maps module.

    Great looking program with what looks like be greatly customizable and that is awsome... anyway... I know this is a beta but I guess it is there for testing and to report bugs... anyway, when there is an option to "sleep" or "cancel" or whatever and cancel... on a touchscreen you connot touch the cancel button... is that because this program is not really designed for touchscreens... also, when you go to fullscreen there is no way of getting out of the view unless you hit the "esc" button...

    but this program is great and keep up the good work...
