Code changes

Thursday 17:40 123858287b: fix red rli_img

devices > 16 bit depth use a struct of values for the pixels this needs converted to use by functions expecting a single integer as a pixel value

Thursday 17:11 a6570b7d37: lua use lcd_drawline to draw lines inside rliimages

rewrite draw_text to use new viewport buffer

set_viewport now accepts rliimage to allowe interfacing with rb. functions

fix long standing 2-bit bug with text drawing in lua fix 2-bit img saving bug (i'm guessing just a one off, just enabled clipping)

fix font_getstringsize bug

fix shape of numbers draw_num.lua also add auto centering

add page scrolling to printtable

add a new demo script 'stars'

Wednesday 18:55 c38aeb3fbc: voice: add a 'make talkclips' target for voice builds.

This will use the configured tts engine and language to generate the talk clips for a specified directory.

TALKDIR=/path/to/somehere make talkclips TALKDIR=/path/to/somehere make talkclips-force

If 'TALKDIR' is not defined then it will error out gracefully.

Normally if a talkclip is present already it will not regenerate the file, but 'make talkclip-force' will regenerate it anyway.
