Subject: Rockbox version 2.4 released

Rockbox version 2.4 released

From: Björn Stenberg <>

Hi all.

When 2.3 finally got out the door after too many months, we decided to aim for making regular releases roughly every two months. And since 2.3 was released at the end of october, now is about time for 2.4.

Naturally, since less time has passed since last release there are fewer changes in this than was in 2.3. In fact, 2.4 is mostly a bug fix release. Nevertheless this is the one you want to run.

Remember to install all the files in the zip. No cheating!

Here are the release notes. Merry Christmas!
