News on Products:
Pocket Artist 3.1 has just been released, featuring bug fixes that concerned saving JPEG images. We've also added a plugin framework to extend the File Formats that Pocket Artist can read and write. We also have an early copy of a JPEG2000 plugin available. All other known bugs were patched for this release, including various selection and shape bugs.
Pocket Player 2.6 is now available with several new features, including playback of Protected WMA files (purchased music) on devices with WMP10 Mobile. We've redesigned the Today plugin to be skinnable, with color-changing ability to match your Today theme. All known bugs have been patched for this release as well, increasing its overall strength.
In addition, we've developed (and included) several key plugins to accompany Pocket Player. Bass Boost is now available as a DSP plugin, which is independent of the 10-band equalizer. Album Art visualization is now supported, as are other special effects. We've developed a plugin that supports the HP Bluetooth Headphones, and the playback controls it features. Finally, we have a FLAC playback plugin which is used for lossless compression of media.
