This release is a major release which brings a host of new features.
Most importantly, Python OS supports multiple display sizes, and ships with 320x480 by default. This is a setting that can be changed in the
res/settings.json file. This change was facilitated by the introduction of computed Component dimensions. There are also notable improvements to performance, as well as some minor tweaks to design. Several longstanding bugs have been fixed.
This release is a hotfix update that provides a quick patch for key functionality.
Specifically, this release:
- Fixes a bug in
pyos.pythat prevented apps from being upgraded.
Additionally, v1.01 includes the new, completely rewritten package manager PMan. Because of the nature of the bug in 1.0, you cannot update PMan through the old "Software" app. You must update to the 1.01 release to get the new version.
This is the first release of Python OS. It is stable and ready for daily use and modification. To get started with Python OS 6, follow the directions in the README.md file, and if you find a bug, remember to report it on the Issues page.
This long-overdue release features a much more stable and robust interface, with added GUI polish and code review. It also features the updated application set.
Some things to try:
- When you long-click an app in the Launcher, detailed info is shown.
- Dialogs have larger buttons.
- The state shell and task manager are hidden in the About app.
- The image-viewer is hidden, replaced by the Gallery app.
This release includes all of the functionality expected in the final version.
Please look for and report bugs on the Issues page. This release does not catch application failures, so it may not be stable and usable.
