Subject: Re: Is it time for a formal release?
From: David McIntyre (
Date: 2003-11-18

The bookmartk patch does indeed rock my box. But it's not up to snuff for a
release version. I've encountered several player crashes, lost bookmarks, etc
using it, but I continue to use it for audiobooks. I'm just a bit more caution
about what I try to do other than straight listening. But I'd like to nominate
it for debugging attention that I wish I could give it. ;)
