gst-dmtx 0.10.3

New release of gst-dmtx out now. Major change is that buffers are handled in a thread so the pipeline won't stall if "skip" propery is set larger than 0. Set "skip=0" to use the old behavior, for example when analyzing a one buffer only image.

Get it here: gst-dmtx-0.10.3.tar.gz.

mydicto 1.0.1

Finaly uploaded to extras builder, a very simple application to record speech. Uses the libdicto library to do the actual work.
For now it supports recording, playback (with seeking), removing and sharing of recordings in fixed 8Khz, 16-bit, mono format.

Upcoming versions will have:
  • format selection support
  • recording of phone calls
  • diablo and gregale (N8x0/770) support

libdicto & mydicto

For some time now Mapper has had integrated support for taking dictations that then can be used for example in JOSM when editing maps. The dictation component was quite generic so I split it out and made it into a library and widget that can be used in other applications.

libdicto repo can be found here and release here. I just uploaded 1.0.6 to maemo extras builder.

As the widget is quite generic I also made a simple dictation app for the N900 (and soon for the N800/N810/770 too), called mydicto. As soon as libdicto is built I'll upload mydicto to the builder too.
