Thank you, that does make things simpler. I've finally updated the wiki lists after a month of not having time (and it looks like I'm practically the only one doing this, unfortunately)
You're welcome. I know you're more or less alone updating the wiki even if anyone could help here
You're a coding machine, sebt3, and I think I'll be using a lot of your programs when I get my system. So thank you for all of your work.
I'm not. I just use some tools to build packages. In most these PND I don't even have written a single line of code nor do I have touched the PXML file (all generated, the script have been published here mounths ago, I'm still alone to use it
I don't even tests most of the time (beside making sure the app start). That why all my packages appear on these boards before getting uploaded to the file archive.
(BTW, I'm now using the link above to keep track of my own packages so you should be safe using it too)
I guess I just don't understand why Pandora software releases have to be so spread out all over the place, in general. Where I find links to new Pandora software:
1. GP32X forums, "news" & "beta testing" sections, sometimes even in "port requests" or "dev talk". More and more software is being released only on the forums.
If a PND stay on the forum it will be forgiven as anything else on it...
Most of the time, there is a reason why it haven't poped yet on something more official. (as said above mines usually need more testing, or aren't in a usable state, osmo case)
2. OpenPandora dev forums (one or two things have been announced there exclusively)
Things posted here also have a reason to be posted here : not ready for general consomption, not in a PND etc, etc
3. Pandora Apps/appstore (once a central place, but very few things are released there these days)
Some dev are unhappy with the thing. Last time I bugged Craigx about that he answered something like "wont fix". So I don't upload there. Others had taken this decision before me and I also know some that have taken the same road since.
I'll still be happy if someone post my pnd there (Only those on the file archive).
4. Pandora File Archive (this seems to get ~half or more of what is released, these days)
IMHO, this is the central archive and only user-friendly PND should get there (no beta-test etc)
5. That website you just linked to (some things are updated there while versions in other places aren't)
This page is updated automatisly when I upload a file there which is where I upload all my work. So it its _very_ up-to-date
But is more something for the wiki maintainers and me. (those pnd alvailable there with no link to a gp32x thread are broken, those with no FA link are beta, the last category are my releases)
I've heard that ED is going to work on the File Archive to add some extra features to make it easier to use and such. I hope things will improve, and people will start uploading everything to one central place...
Just looking at it from a "new user" perspective, who wants to hunt down software all over the place, when every dev puts it somewhere different? That was the reason the File Archive was created in the first place, way back in the GP32 days.
There was the box where I gathered all my hope, but this project is dead now
I realy hope good thing for the new file-archive version, even if I doubt we would have the same kind of backend as "the box" provided
