We’ve had some unfortunate hardware fault to deal with and getting replacement hardware to our hosting took quite long. Also bringing it up and restoring the virtual machine for openAOS.org took longer.
It involved among other things:
delays in getting the hardware
delays because of sickness of volunteers involved
delays due to business travel
delays due to lack of free time
On the plus side, the physical host now is a much better machine and less likely to fail than the previous hardware.
The first ReleaseCandidate has been done a while ago and we got some very important feedback from the testers – thanks again to everyone who filed tickets! We’re working hard with our limited resources to make this a great release, sadly this takes time.
As the RC is not advertized nor supported you haven’t read about it here on the openAOS blog. Still we figure we should show you what’s cooking now that we’re closing in. This release will still be based on Cyanogenmod 7 and will support Archos gen7 and gen8 devices (including A48IT).
