I’ve just uploaded a new nightly build. It’s got quite a few changes compared to the last one. I haven’t listed all changes in the overview, but here are some of the changes:
- Changed the way images load
- Made some changes to the movie details view (work in progress…)
- Updated Trailers section with Upcoming / Now Playing views
- Updated TV shows with tabs
I’ve also got some other good news for those of you who are following Mizuu and the development closely. I am actively going to publish nightly builds now. There probably won’t be a lot of changes between each build, and I might also fix bugs and introduce new bugs with each iteration, but I’ll try to do at least one hour of programming each day now. I’ve still got a pretty tight schedule, but I should be able to make it work. (Update: Seems to be working fine. Working on a pretty sweet change…)
Another piece of good news is that I’m getting a Google TV development unit from the good folks at Google. With time, I’ll hopefully be able to get Mizuu to a point where it’s fully usable on Google TV as well as mobile phones and tablets. I don’t know when it’ll arrive, but I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
Also – I’ve just upgraded my PC, so it’s considerably faster at compiling the code and it has greatly improved my coding experience. This should also make it a bit more fun for me to work on updates for you guys. Sadly, the Android development kit isn’t that great at handling large projects like Mizuu, so it’ll still be a bit slow, but any progress is good! (You can find my updated PC specifications below, if you’re interested)
Finally, I’m going to do more updates. I really enjoy getting in touch with you guys and getting your feedback. I’m in contact with at least 10 different people each day, and it’s really great. Thanks a lot for all your support. You’re the best.
For those of you interested, here are the updated specifications of my PC:
- Intel Core i7 3770K @ 4.5 GHz per core
- 16 GB RAM (Corsair Vengeance @ 1600 MHz)
- 240 GB SanDisk Extreme SSD (550/520 MB/s)
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 580
All in all – a true workhorse 🙂
