Release Notes: This is mostly a bugfix release for an issue that cropped up with recent versions of xorg where Gizmod would spike the CPU for long periods of time. However, there are a number of other efficiency fixes as well, meaning that CPU usage has been decreased across the board. In addition to the fixes, support for device matching by product and vendor ID codes was improved. Initial support for the Logitech Momo racing wheel was added.
Release Notes: This release is mostly in response to feature requests from users. There are a couple of minor bugfixes, but most of the new features are related to the Python scripting API. New features include timer supper, button "timeouts" for the Powermate USB dial, Beryl support, and more.
Release Notes: This is largely a maintenance release which brings some 64-bit fixes, configure script updates, and other bugfixes. Along with these minor changes, the script API has been revamped again. It's even more Pythonic, and it's now much easier to create custom device and application scripts. There are some base classes from which scripts can inherit to gain desired functionality.
Release Notes: A new visualization API allows all events to be visualized on the keyboard LEDs as well as other visualization capable devices (such as the Griffin PowerMate), so now everyone can visualize Amarok sound output and CPU usage on their keyboard LEDs. Also new is a Remote Control mode which allows Gizmod to fully control one computer with another. There are several bugfixes present as well.
Release Notes: Rebuilt from the ground up. The primary focus was to make the configuration scripts much more manageable and easy to understand. Amarok support for visualizing music on the PowerMate USB Dial. A number of fixes for remote users. A new "stray button" detection scheme means that remote over-sensitivity is pretty much a thing of the past. Client/server support. Any and all events can be transmitted over a network, and there are several options available for different usage scenarios.
Release Notes: This is a major bugfix release, and for affected users who were experiencing random segfaults, this release should finally put those to rest. This release also has reduced memory and resource utilization.
Release Notes: Bugfixes for GCC 4, as well as 64-bit platforms.
Release Notes: This is mainly a maintenance release and fixes all known bugs that came in after the 2.0 release. The short list includes fixes for GCC4, 64-bit users, distribution-specific XMMS issues, and many small problems in the config script, especially relating to the PowerMate, but quite a few in relation to Remotes as well. There were also a couple of new features added, such as support for the hardware pulsing mode of the Powermate and a software pulsing plugin.
Release Notes: The scripting language has changed from Lua to Python, which brings added stability, and a significantly more powerful scripting API. Plugins can now be implemented directly from Python using the scripting API if desired. All of the old device plugins are still there: PowerMate, Generic (keyboard, mouse, joystick, etc), and ATI X10 RF Remote, but there is now out of the box support for LIRC based IR remotes, and a keymap specifically designed for Happauge remotes.
Release Notes: This release fixes a segfault in the Lua scripting engine and adds an additional keymap to the ATI X10 RF remote for mplayer. The client will differentiate between mplayer and other active programs and will send the mplayer keymap only when mplayer is active.
