Tomdroid 0.3.0 release


Hi everyone,

I have the pleasure to announce Tomdroid's 0.3.0 release!

This new version brings snappy startup (thanks to Benoît Garret!), better
user interaction and overall polish. A foundation for note editing and sync.

Tomdroid is a Tomboy compatible wikiwiki note-taking application for
Android. Right now it's a tomboy note viewer but soon it should be
considered a full tomboy client for android (I hope).

Tomdroid's project page: http://www.launchpad.net/tomdroid/

For now Tomdroid is not available on the Google Market Place but you can
find the latest package at: https://launchpad.net/tomdroid/+download. Point
your Android browser over there and click on the top .apk file. Alternate
installation instructions are available in the README file.

Version 0.3.0 - fundationem
*Android 1.5 or later required*
* Instant startup -- database back-end instead of files (Benoît Garret)
* New "Sync from SD Card" menu item that will populate the notes database
with the notes in tomdroid/ on the SD card (Benoît Garret)
* Significantly smaller App (went from ~380Kb to ~35Kb)
* Note list is now sorted showing last modified notes first
* Notification when "Sync from SD Card" is complete
* Note title no longer shown in the note text
* Fixed note parsing errors (#364850, #483101)
* Fixed phone numbers in note titles (#512204)
* Improved help messages
* Improved error reporting to the user
* Removed the "Load from Web" not-so-useful feature (Benoît Garret)
