Subject: How up to date is the feature requests page?

How up to date is the feature requests page?

I am new to the rockbox experience. I was looking for an older mp3
player (with a 2.5 inch hard drive) and originally bought the Neo 25 G
II. When I found out that there was an open source firmware for Archos
players, I bought one. I just want to thank everyone for making such a
great project.

On to my question. I was wondering how up to date the status of the
requests on the "feature requests" page is. In other words, if and
entry is marked with no resolution, is it possible it was still
resolved? How often is the list updated?

Here's why I'm asking. There are two feature requests (asking for the
same thing) that are exactly what I am looking for. Request
and 739088 (

I listen to a lot of audio books and old time radio shows. Sometimes
the first 20-30 characters of the mp3 name are the same. I would love
to be able to display the file name starting from where the characters
differ, filtering out the letters that are the same.

Is there any chance that this feature has been implemented even though
it is marked as unresolved?

Thank you,

PS I was thinking of ways to logically implement this issue if it
wasn't already implemented. I am not a programmer (I mainly do bash
scripting, although I have taken an introductory C course) so I
probably won't be able to implement it myself, but I thought of a way
it might work. Being that the files are displayed in Alphabetical
order, all you really need to do is compare the file to the one above
it in order to find the differences in the file name. I don't know if
it is a practical solution or if it would end up hogging memory or
anything like that, but it is what I came up with.
