Hello Musicfreaks!

I am only a user and not a developer, but I agree 100% with you. Perhaps
only an updated manual so that the new goodies aren't to difficult if you
don't read everyday all posts. This would be great. Althoug I use my
Rockboxx everyday there are still some functions of the latest builds I
don't really know. Perhaps someone who has time can make something like an
updated FAQ or something like this.

Have a nice day
Fred
