you can now download QtMoko v39 from here [1]. For more info about QtMoko 
please visit our homepage [2].

Changes since previous version are:

  * gta04-gsm-voice-routing for gsm voice calls on GTA04
  * fixed cruxus to close pcm device when not used
  * powering up modem with gpio186 on GTA04A04 in qpe.sh
  * remaped long AUX button function to short POWER
  * 3.2 kernel with gpio186 enabled
From the user point of view most important is, that you will now have sound in 
incoming call - i have fixed the bug where pcm device was not closed after 
playing ringtone.

Voice routing is now done in C program. I have for now enabled the output from 
the program on /dev/tty0 which means that you will see text over QtMoko GUI 
during call. It's quite nice for debugging and to see if call is still in 
progress (the routing indicator stops rotating after remote party hangs up). 
You can disable the output if you edit /opt/qtmoko/qpe.env and comment out 
this line:


One thing that needs fixing is earpiece and speaker volume. Earpiece is too low 
and speaker is too loud. But you can quite easily adjust them to your needs. 
Just launch alsamixer during call and when done do:

	alsactl -f /opt/qtmoko/etc/alsa/gsmearpiece.state store

	alsactl -f /opt/qtmoko/etc/alsa/gsmspeaker.state store

Since this version QtMoko does not need AUX button. Mine has broken (the same 
is on my Freerunner) and i never liked it's ergonomy. Now the screen with 
running apps is brought with short POWER press. You have to suspend the phone 
by locking screen (and setting "suspend" interval in "Power Management" under 
"When locked").

Btw if you ever have the same problem with broken AUX, you might take a look 
here [4]. It's modified boot.scr so that it always shows the nice bootmenu 
where you can select booting from NAND/SD. For installing QtMoko to NAND 
please check this [5] ("Step 12 - jffs2") and this [6].

It would be nice if someone could test this version on GTA04A04.
