In case list members are wondering... a short update.

Yes, I _am_ working on inx-rc2, which I hope will be almost the same as
the "final" release.

Work in progress includes:

	* A "first screen" in "transitional" colours, (browns /
	  yellows), that pops up on boot, with the following options:

	 1 - An introduction "Getting Started with INX", which will have
	      a brief rundown on what the menus do etc. 
	 2 - Credits
	 3 - Some "Advanced" information for more experienced users,
	      or people who want to hack on the scripts, and so on.
	 4 - The GPL Version 3, since that's the licence we are using
	      for INX scripts.

	  -   Hit any other key but [1-4] to get the main INX menu, for
	      the terminally impatient, or the silly ;-p

	* Probably a more flexible choice of time and date display
	  formats - I am working on little script for this, so that
	  people can choose between international standards like 24 hr
	  time or Commonwealth or USA formats, and so on, for the time
          display toggled on|off with "t".

	* Incorporating the wrapper script that *finally* seems to make
	   links2 -g / xlinks2 run with directfb *from the menus*.

I will keep you posted, and of course post the URLs as and when the new
iso is uploaded. I hope this will be Real Soon Now (tm), or When It's
Ready (tm).
