Subject: Ladies and Gentlemen, we have SOUND!

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have SOUND!

I am happy to announce that rockbox just played music for the
first time on an iPod Video G5.5 80GB. While this one isn't a
completely new target, it's a much awaited one, complementing
rockbox support on the iPod Video series.

In case you want to know, the first song played by rockbox on
the G5.5 80GB was "My Dark Side Home" by Visions of Atlantis.

At devcon we decided to implement the "cheap" way for a start,
having a slightly negative impact on disk performance but being
a whole lot easier to implement. There's always the opportunity
to improve performance later on.

I'll give the code some good stress testing before committing it
to SVN, so please don't be too impatient :)

Keep on rocking!!

Jens
