Teaser for the weekly build 2

Behind the scenes a lot of things are happening, most of which are team members climbing up the steep Android development curve. Many have an IT background but have not done Android development or VCS through Git before. So, a lot of learning-by-copying, installing Android Studio, getting heads wrapped around git and github usage, and tiny little experiments. You won’t notice much about those, but regard it as planting seeds and waiting for them to grow and blossom.

We are still trying to improve ELM stability and speed. It is a complex part of the project and it is hard to anticipate on the many things that can (and do) go wrong. Don’t expect leaps there, but gradual improvement.

We received a lot of feedback about the firmware version screen, thank you all! We have simply implemented in the reference (per ECU, per car type) the highest firmware number we have seen reported in the wild. Please do continue to report to us if the application reports an ECU in your car that has a higher version than what we have seen, indicated by [your version] > [ref version] in the display. If you notice your versions being older, you might want to head to the dealer (no, we will not try to implement firmware uploading in the app). Upcoming Sunday’s release should have all these new version numbers implemented.

And then there is of course tons of little tweaks and fixes.

For the (upcoming) developers, information on how to get started is compiled in the WiKi on github.

Stay tuned!
