The roadmap on the rockbox site mentions this for the 1.2 release. We've done
most of everything that is targeted for 1.1 and we are indeed approaching 1.2
status really quick now. If we don't release 1.1 soon we can probably just as
well go for 1.2 right away! ;-)

The charsets (they are in three sizes) in chartables.c were donated by Gary
Czvitkovicz. I don't know what kind of tool he used to create them. If you
read this Gary, we're eager to know!

The charsets are also a bit limited, as they don't supply any characters
above 0x7f. I would personally like to see full ISO-8859-1 support... Again,
we can use some help here!

It is certainly possible to make the software do this. We already have a BMP
image file viewer, and the other day I kind of started on a text viewer.

The Rockbox UI is indeed a bit crude still, yes. We welcome all contributions
that improve it, be it code or suggestions on how to proceed.
