    DSOrganize ver 2.5

    Latest version available for download








    Thought not comparable to the palm pilot in term of features, DSOrganize is the homebrew application everyone should have. Dragonminded has updated his great application to version 2.5. This version comes with loads of improvements & bug fixes as you can see below:


    [​IMG]

    Changelog:

    • Worked on making DSOrganize take up less memory on its own for more plugin memory.
    • Switched to more dynamic approach for plugins. Things should work better now.
    • Changed home screen to display current and next two day planner events instead of past ones.
    • Changed plugin vblank handling to give dedicated vblank access to plugins/exes when run.
    • Changed some code on the arm9 recieve fifo queue, hopefully fixing the random sound/keyboard freeze.
    • Changed arm7 upsampling code to sound better for amplified mp3's.
    • Changed calculator memory usage to allow for larger numbers.
    • Added in newest ogg vorbis memory leak fix.
    • Added echo, cls, wait commands to homebrew database script.
    • Added ability to swap buffers on only the top or bottom screen in plugins.
    • Added ability for plugins to query which screen DSO is on (for those that hook to the draw function).
    • Added simple battery saver function and debug write to disc function to plugin API.
    • Added repeat to all keys in the keyboard and fixed a glitch where char 255 couldn't be typed.
    • Added .dss shortcut type. Shortcuts can point to any file or directory except for another shortcut.
    • Added access to the PSG on the arm9 for plugins
    • Added the missing commands for dswifi to the plugin API.
    • Fixed erasor glitch in scribble.
    • Fixed weird wrapping glitches introduced after the text fix.
    • Fixed glitch in syntax highlighting for html files introduced after text fix.
    • Fixed glitch where if resource0.bin is missing, DSO does not jump to your preferred start page.
    • Fixed error with ID3 tags containing a carriage return/line feed.
    • Fixed crash on loading iconsets from directories longer than 29 characters.
    • Fixed two irc crash bugs relating to bad server replies (ie on irc.enterthegame.com).
    • Removed mikmod loaders for all types but xm, it, s3m, mod due to low popularity.
    It looks like perfect time for an upgrade:

    One thing I hate updates is that.. it means there were problems in the previous version.

    But it also usually means there's something new.

    Hopefully this means we can finally use those unused spaces in the gui.

    edit-I'm still unwary of the homebrew db. Corrupted my cards too many to count. AND it permanently destroyed two of them (the supercard lite could read them, windows/live cd couldn't.)

    It would be cool if Moonshell and DSOrganize combined. That would be one wicked homebrew app!

    I'm (fairly) sure that both source codes are released, why don't you do that?

    I asked the author of DualSwan and he told me that you would release the latest build of DualSwan(previously discontinued) as a plugin for DSO as soon as DSO went out of beta stage which it has.

    **Hoping for DualSwan update soon**

    [​IMG] Very nice. Great work. Can I request a Vista one? I tried to make one myself, but all the icons turned out to have a black block behind them for some reason.

    Is it easy enough to update without losing all your stored stuff. I don't want to install this and lose my calender entries otherwise I wont know when to go to work...

    Every entry you do creates a new file if im not mistaken. So overwriting everything by selecting the folder and .nds file won't change anything.

    I almost thought the radio station streaming freezing was fixed.. but after listening to it for 4min it froze again [​IMG]
