I have read the hid entry on wikipedia, so I understand basically what it is, I was wondering is this going to make life for programmers easier, or will actual rockbox users see benefits from the introduction of hid?
Alex, my GSoC work is composed of two somewhat different parts. The first part is making the DAP enumerate as HID, which is in simple words making it enumerate to the operating system as a sort of multimedia keyboard. Today, the keypad has no use when the player is connected to the computer. With my work it will be possible to send the computer key presses, like controlling volume and skipping tracks.
