    Almost one year later, where are we?

    As we draw closer and closer to the year's anniversary of the last RR release I gotta ask what's really going on here? I mean its quite clear that its something, but what? The only way RR has survived in the last year is because of the support of its users... and thats great really. It shows the true strength of the community. But its also led to a series of compounded problems which has resulted in multiple broken versions of one piece of software. Nothing we're not getting through, but nothing any new user of RR could possibly understand. Now on this board we've seen this happen before a few times in similar ways.. with phoco and CF and streetdeck... and i ask.. is that the same direction RR is taking now? Alot of people, myself included work hours a week on this program and subsequent support apps, scripts, skins and plugins and i just think it would be fair to know if its all for nothing at this point.

    to me the carpc community is still a niche product. as long as no major manufacturers start to include pc functionality into their cars (because margins for inbuilt gps oem solutions are much higher) there is no real competition in software frontends (+gps etc.)

    this also affects open source projects. once 2-4 real commercial solutions are out, open source is also profiting of it because more people are going this path to have the freedom of choice.

    Sonic,

    We must both be on the same wave length because I came into this section to post something very similar.. There have been many individual updates made to the RR source since the last release and most of these changes have been made to older RR Source code since the latest version is not available for download..

    Can we track some of the updates that have been made..

    Mitch's Sirus Code updates
    John's Weather Fix
    Progressive Sliders


    Is there anything else anyone can think off also does guino have record of all the changes to merge in to the next release..

    Sun, Come shine my way
    May healing waters bury all my pain
    Wind, Carry me home
    The fabric of reality is tearing apart
    The piece of me that died
    Will return To live again

    We, as a Road Runner community have some great minds. It is understandable that some people have alot to do in their lives and can't spend the time they realy would like to spend on the project. It seems to me that this Open Project is not as open as it was.
    Mitch is one great guy and fixes all kind of problems based on an OLD source. The last released version of RR, (Weather fixed) had the solid sliders and broke some other things.
    If Guino does not want to continue with this project, like Cayote, the original starter of that project, this is understandable. I think we need the last source from Guino and let Mitch, if he wants to, continue and fix it to a point that we have a nice working front end with album art and solid sliders fixed. After that we can just work with plugins to enhance it even further as we do now. Blue's nice media engine is one of them. Alot of people write even Autoit scripts to do what we want to enhance. I think if we stick together we can have a nice front end what can't be toppled by others.

    Some changes still require enhancements to the source code..

    Has any thought been given to adding RR to Source Forge.. Where it would be easier to check in new code, updates provided etc..

    This would I guess still require some level of moderation..

    i think its pretty clear at this point that the source is not being made available because its being altered to the point where its terms of use are no longer valid. Fact of the matter is i believe RR's going commercial.
