Status update

Posted by touchcontrol on March 19, 2012

It looks like the JS homebrew/filemgr services were updated to support the new file locations for webosnation, so Touchvol should again install without issue from Preware.

Also, 0.1.4 is looking to go out sometime this week.  If I don’t get any additional bug reports by say Friday 3/23 then Ill push it to release.  Some notes for the upcoming release:

  • Microphone input controls
  • ucm patches added, select it and then restart pulseaudio to take effect
  • Exhibition mode added
  • Filemgr dependency removed.
  • Auto closes the dashboard launcher card
  • Dashboard now contains basic volume controls for media/system volume. They should also be available on the lock screen.
  • Added in volume tracking for system volume. (I was waiting on some changes to the services, but finally just put in some service glue to make it work for now.)
  • Choice of startup modes: 1 – Luna Patch, 2 – Full Gui, 3 – Dashboard (start Gui with second launch)
  • Master volume control added – should function as such. Can be used to control output volume from phone stream paired by bluetooth(‘speakerphone’ mode), controls speaker balance, generally the last gatekeeper in the audio output path. (default is max, it’s a little glitchy so let me know if it does anything terrible)
  • Media volume control now unifies back_speaker/headset scenarios. I originally left it to the active scenario but it’s annoying having it shift volume when you unplug the headphones.
  • Should now catch headphone volume change related to scenario switch also. May work in another optional patch to remove headphone volume from the media case definition. (either that or just catch and correct the change but this seems silly)
  • Some Pre3 UI fixes.
  • Some general UI changes.
  • Output switch button now checks for headphone presence when switching modes.
