A lot of activity this weekend wrt to packaging. It seems that we will have working packages for RPM and DEB soon. Packages for Windows and OSX are in the works too, but not yet here.
We're aiming to tag 0.80 on Friday.I think we should throw up packages then too, so that people can test more easily. It also means that we could get comments like "you're bloody game doesent w0rk!!!!" (l337isms added on purpose), but that's life. It's not really fully playable yet, but we're getting there. :)
Put it up on SourceForge during the weekend. Have implemented a nice XML-based and quite dynamic menu system for the thing. As a first real thing I'll add a little state that shows current TV listings. I already have all listings as XML files, so it needs to parse the XML file and generate a little menu and some surfaces for the data. Fun stuff. So the software side is prograssing nicely, as I have a lot of old stuff to basically just copy.
When I get a little bit further un the software side I'll make an initial announcement and see if someone is interested in the whole thing.
The hardware side of the box is still not started. I have most of the stuff, but just need to start with the physical assembly. I just need to be bootstrapped into starting it. Will be fun. Still missing a harddrive, round IDE cable and the IrMan receiver.
