RevFE 0.6.1 Release Candidate 1
Latest Version: 0.6.1-RC1
0.6.1 includes a major feature addition, the AutoAppMart plugin! This allows you to connect to the mp3car autoappmart.com website, browse apps, and download them right from your carpc without a browser. This also has lead to the addition of the ability to install plugins from a zip file, and will eventually allow the user to add, remove, enable and disable plugins on the fly, eventually without restarting RevFE.
To use the autoappmart plugin, you have to go into the settings menu, and change the username and password to your autoappmart.com username and password. These ARE saved plaintext, so if that worries you, wait for a later release where they will be encrypted.
This thread will be open for issues pertaining to 0.6.1
As before, documentation is available at http://revfe.org. It is by far incomplete, however I am working on it.
Microsoft Visual c++ 2010 redist is required to run RevFE on most systems:
Linux binaries not available
You can feel free to download the latest and compile it, there are fewer modifications now required to get it to run, so it should run out of the box fairly easily once you have the required libraries installed.
Or download it using your GIT client:
I am not tagging this release, and will only be tagging major releases from now on.
