Version 0.2.13pa1 Now Available

Hey Everyone! Time for a new update to keep you all in the loop of some recent, and amazing, new changes.

As of today, 7/29/2010, version 0.2.13pa1 is now available for download and testing!
(Note: This is still a pre-alpha release and still under heavy development.)

Along with the new version comes the following new features:
  • New look to the UI. Matches much better.(Screenshots below)
  • FamFamFam icons are used, same as in WebUI.
    • Image/Video
    • Audio
    • File/Unknown File Type
    • Folder
  • Changelog will soon be available for viewing through the AndroidU1 (sysadmin of has to fix a certificate issue), but you can also find it here.
  • New "Downloading" and "Ready" toasts added.
  • Long Tap/Click brings up new context menu (needs fixing, sorry!).
  • Changing orientation has been sped up.

These are some awesome changes that have happened since the last release and I must say that I'm really impressed. AndroidU1 just feels much more stable now and every release brings a new user friendliness to the app.

Please feel free to download and test AndroidU1. Also, please remember to file bug reports if you encounter anything out of the norm. Known issues are listed in the changelog (we're working on them!). As always, we are available to chat and answer question in the irc ( #androidu1), check us out at the bottom of the blog! :-)

New Co-Author

Hello everyone! My name is Lorenzo (Excedio) and I'm one of the testers for AndroidU1. I'm an Ubuntu user as well as an Android user (HTC DROID Incredible) and am excited about this project.

Since I'm not a programmer I'm not able to contribute code to the project, but I am an avid blogger and thought that I could help out by keeping the public up to date on the progress of the project. :-)

Moving forward, you all can look forward to more frequent updates as well as updated screenshots (I'm sure we all remember that post ;-) ).

So all that being said; keep visiting, commenting, and sending your suggestions!

PS…Remember that we can always be located in the AndroidU1 IRC Channel ( #androidu1). Also remember that AndroidU1 is still a pre-Alpha release and still under heavy development.

Weekly reports #6 & #7

Short one, I prefer to spend that time on coding (service / [up|down]load of files).
