Tomdroid 0.5.0 released!


Hi everyone,

I have the pleasure to announce Tomdroid's 0.5.0 release!

This [again] long overdue release is the culmination of several interesting
things including (but not limited to): searching for notes, sending notes,
an updated high-resolution icon and several parsing fixes and overall

It is *not* intended to be an android market release yet as we would like to
get feedback from people who reported note parsing errors and we would like
to see some testing done in our little community first.

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 (we hope).
