There’s already a lot of people, mostly by mail, that contacted us for developing applications for the fonera 2.0. We expect to have the first Community developed applications soon, but… what’s the firmware team busy with?
Well, as you can imagine, we don’t only work on the fonera 2.0… we have other things in hands (implementing FON in other devices, improving compatibility with other partner’s devices etc etc) but we now have a permanent team working on the Fonera 2.0.
Some are working in future stuff we can’t talk much about… (Martin, did you already mention anything? lol) but others are doing fonera 2.0 development on a daily basis. And we’re soon giving you the results of this work. Wanna know what I’m talking about? How does this sound?
- We already fixed the bug that limited WAN traffic to 1MB/s. Actually, we improved it quite a lot: whereas the fonera+ is only able to do 1,8MB/s, the fonera2.0 is now able to reach 2,4MB/s! Good work huh?
- UMTS/HSPDA, as Martin and John already confirmed is already working. We want to support more devices, but for that, we will need people to test it!! We expect your feedback as soon as we make it available.
- My favorite: WE ARE MAKING A BRAND NEW WEB INTERFACE for the fonera 2.0. As some of you already ‘guessed’ it will be based on lua. It’s an adaptation of the LuCI technology. The look and feel will be much nicer (thanks Rico!), the HTML code cleaner (thanks Iban) and the usability much better (thanks Eloy, Martin, Jordi etc etc). But the best of all: making web pages for the applications inside the fonera 2.0 won’t be a nightmare anymore (thanks John and Cyrus!) :D
- Your favorite: well… even if some doubted it… YES! BitTorrent support and YouTube support are on their way. Soon? You can bet on it.
I know you’re all expecting some dates now… right. But I’m keeping them for myself, even if it’s only to annoy a few ones.
Ok, just as a present for those who deserve it: I dare say it will be before the last month of the current year comes. lol
