I just uploaded v1.0.69, which fixes crashes related to showing/hiding the action bar. (Sorry about that!) It should become available from the store in a few hours.

+Huy DINH didn't think of that to be honest. Well, he could show the button only when there's one window open. That's one way to go about it.

New version of TEA has been released.

v1.0.66

New launcher icon. (nathanel.titane@gmail.com)

Widget icons can now have multi-line text labels. (FrankWestlake)

Improved Russian localization. (Timofey Lisunov)

TEA can now be used to display other application's terminal sessions. See ITerminal.aidl in the source tree. (Alexander Rvachev)

Close non-standard file descriptors when launching subprocess. (We tried doing this before in 1.0.55, but didn't know about the ANDROID_PROPERTY_WORKSPACE environment variable.) (Jack Palevich, Alexander Rvachev)

Fixed minor NDK compiler warnings.

Dropped support for Android 1.5 (Cupcake). Had to do this to enable the ITerminal.aidl feature.

D'Oh! Android Terminal Emulator has been removed from the Play Store. The reason it was removed was that the application name starts with the word "Android". I will be renaming the application and publishing a new version shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I have just published version 1.0.60. It should be available in the Play Store in a few hours. This version has two cool new features contributed by Frank Westlake:

You can create launcher shortcuts. When you click on a launcher shortcut it will open the terminal emulator and run a custom command.

If you use a third-party file manager, there is now a "Term Here" share menu item for directories. It opens an ATE term window for a given directory.

I just pushed a new version of Terminal Emulator for Android. v1.0.64

It fixes a security issue that allowed untrusted third-party applications to launch TEA to run scripts.

Unfortunately, it also breaks "Terminal widgets". (Because as far as TEA is concerned the Launcher is an untrusted third-party application.)

I'm trying to figure out how to restore the Terminal Widgets feature without putting back the security issue. When I figure that out I'll push a new version.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

I moved the projects for two libraries that Taipei-Torrent depends on from code.google.com to github. Hopefully a simple go get -u will fix things up.  The two libraries are go-nat-pmp and bencode-go.

I released a new version of Android Terminal Emulator today.

v1.0.62 Small improvements and bug fixes.

The Term shortcut dialog box now has its own file picker in case you don't have a third-party file manager installed.

Bug fixes:

Fixed crash when tapping on the last character of a hyperlink and the link was the last text in a line.

Improved handling of multibyte characters.

Updated Hungarian translation.

Minor update today to fix "go vet" warnings.

We were using old-style struct tag syntax, and go vet was warning about that.

I updated go-bencode to support the new struct tag syntax, and then updated taipei torrent to use the new syntax.

Be sure to use go get -u to update the go-bencode package.

I refactored the code to allow the tracker swarm test to run on TravisCI

I turned the testSwarm tests on for Travis-CI. Woot. Real tests.

I couldn't get testdht.sh to work after the refactoring -- it never seemed to get any clients. I may have broken something, or maybe the test DHT server is down.

I tried the DHT test this morning, before applying your patch, and it was working again. So probably just every router being down.

This service is located inside Fred Meyers in a jewelry store. I brought two thrift store watches here to have their batteries changed. The technician did a fine job, and also adjusted the bands to fit.

We took our kids, ages 4-6, here yesterday, and everyone had a good time. It was a great way to beat the summer heat. I would recommend bringing lots of sunscreen and perhaps a portable tent, as there is not much shade. There's also some play structures and a big grassy field with an oval walking track that's good for scooters, tricycles and bikes.

Extensive English language children's book section in basement. It also has a special room for reading stories to little kids. That room has over 100 giant-sized English-language children's books and four or five sets of small-child-sized chairs and tables.
