    Release Notes: This release is the first one based on OpenWRT trunk, updating most of the software and toolchain to the bleeding edge. Other additions include a subversion client, the powerful ASE drawing program, guitar tuning software, and the Allegro Game Library (and with it the Alex-4 jump'n'run game). Emacs is finally in a usable state, starting up within only a few seconds.

      Release Notes: This version brings many fixes and improvements. A tuned Linux flash driver brings boot-time time down to 15s, the MPlayer video player now features hardware acceleration, allowing it to play back most full-screen (QVGA) Theora and WebM/VP8 video material, and SFTP is supported out-of-the-box, so most Linux distributions can now directly mount the NanoNote filesystem. Software installable from the repository includes a version of avrdude that turns the NanoNote into a programmer for AVR chips (for use with the "UBB" adapter-board available from Tuxbrain and other distributors).

The boot loader now supports multiboot of various configurations or operating systems via keys F1 through F4. Various bugs were fixed, especially problems with incomplete terminal support for applications launched from Gmenu2x.
