Rockbox 3.1 - codename Fireworks

Approximate release date: November 2006

Supported Platforms

    * Archos Player, Recorder, Recorder v2, Recorder FM, Ondio
    * iRiver H1xx, H3xx
    * iPod 4g, 5g, Nano
    * iAudio X5

Proposed new features:

    * Runtime DB
    * Album art
    * Viewports in WPS
    * One image file WPSes (using tar files)
    * Platform independent architecture improvements to facilitate
porting to new platforms
          o New /platform directory containing heirarchical structure of
platform specific code to reduce #ifdef usage and code duplication
          o Platform specific #defines in /firmware replaced by inline
functions included from the /platform heirarchy
          of Keymappings for applications to be based upon platform
independent functions (eg next item, last item, up in heirarchy etc.)
which are defined in a single platform specific file. No #ifdef KEYPAD_*
statements to remain.
          o All #ifdefs in /apps to be function specific (eg HAS_RTC,
HAS_RECORD, HAS_MENU_BAR) rather than hardware specific

**Any chance of the voice UI on Apple machines? If not, should this be
advised on the user list so we blind folk don't go out and buy IPODS?
