    •  04 Feb 2010 09:45

      Release Notes: A rendering engine was implemented, which qualifies Disko for native X11 support and Linux framebuffer support, among other things. The framebuffer backend makes use of multiple layers on TI DaVinci and OMAP platforms (i.e. for video playback and overlaying transparent OSD). It was successfully ported to the Blackfin ADSP-BF527 by Analog Devices. It also includes lots of bugfixes and performance enhancements.

        Release Notes: This release has a new X11 backend, making Disko independent of DirectFB if running on X11. Basic SIP client and flash support was added. There are new widgets and animations. The build system has been switched from make to scons, providing more flexibility.

          Release Notes: This release has a very basic improvement referring to the performance with the conversion to the TAFF file format. The effect of this conversion is that all pics and XML files are parsed only once, which will save a lot of startup time. In addition, this release has integrated basic flash support based on swfdec 0.8, supports the MySQL interface, and has a basic implementation of a SIP client interface. There are bugfixes and performance optimizations.
