Homebrew Browser 1 year anniversary

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The Homebrew Browser turns 1 today. I have to say that it doesn’t feel like it’s been a year for me but you can’t argue with the release dates.

Along with it comes this quick 1 year anniversary video put together showing the progression of the HBB versions. The ending seems familiar 😉

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

XML files are used as an easy way to read and store data which is useful for storing configuration settings from applications. It’s always good practice to allow your application to be customised by the user, be it by turning off the Wiimote rumble, enabling background music, disabling prompts, etc. In this tutorial we’ll learn how to load and save simple settings by using XML files.

HBB updated to v0.3.2

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

2 June 2009 (v0.3.2)

  • Added an updated applications pop-up which can be disabled in the setting. When applications are updated, you will be notified of the date, application and version when starting HBB.
  • Added number of Wiimotes supported by applications by showing the number in the Wiimote icon
  • Can revert to using IP address if HBB can’t find domain
  • Added a download icon to indicate which application is being downloaded when you are browsing whilst downloading
  • Added setting to disable Wiimote power off as some users experienced their Wii’s turning off automatically
  • Fixed bug where download/delete buttons would show when rating an application
  • Fixed an issue when deleting applications wouldn’t delete some folders
  • Fixed squares that occasionally showed after name, description, etc which would cause creating/deleting directories to fail
  • Fixed download queue issue when removing applications from the queue
  • Fixed code dumps that occurred when scrolling the lists

The Homebrew Browser has now been upgraded to v0.3.2. The main feature is an updated applications pop-up which lets you know exactly which applications where updated, the date they were updated on the HBB and the version it was updated to.

Also are a few fixes, especially for the squares issue which keeps on occurring but it should now be fixed permanently.

Download HBB v0.3.2 or run HBB on your Wii to update.
