Supercard MiniSD

It seems there are some problems with the new Supercard MiniSD. Apparently it is not 100 % compatible with Chishm's FAT lib, or at least the modifications I made to it in order to add write support for the Supercard SD. Perhaps some more SC MiniSD users can report their experiences, and if other homebrew apps work.

As for the good news,SSL is coming closer :)

Supercard SD write support

I finally found a way to add write support for Supercard SD so you can save your settings. This was the first time I could actually test the save settings feature, and I found out it is very bugged. I already fixed this, but it I want to work on newsfeed support before releasing a new version. This will also contain the latest version of dswifi.

status report

OK, here is a short update of what I'm working on at the moment.
SSL is on high priority now. I'm currently trying to figure out how to extract and decode the server public key from the server certificate. If anyone knows about this stuff, please contact me.

I'm not doing much bugfixiing for NDSMail at the moment, as I'm waiting for new version of sgstair's wifi lib & chishm's fat lib. I think that especially the recv bug causes a lot of crashes.

As always, new version out soon :)

NDSMail 0.41

- correctly converts some tags like line breaks, so mail/feed display is a lot nicer.
- file writing probably did not work at all in 0.40
- better error handling / access point reconnect
- default settings in nds file, so users without filesystem support can hex-edit their settings

For those who are waiting for SSL, it will not happen before the release of a new version of dswifi.

As always, I'm working on cool new features, stay tuned :)

Download is at the old location

If you find any feeds that do not work with NDSMail or just feeds you would like to share, please post them in comments.

NDSMail 0.40 featuring RSS/ATOM support

Newsfeed (RSS/ATOM)support

You can set up the feeds you want to read in the settings / feed settings menu. NDSMail also looks for a file called ndsmail.fed in the flash card's root directory. ndsmail.fed is a text file, each line contains the URL (full URL with http://) to a RSS or ATOM feed.
To download the feeds, press on the button in the main screen to switch to mode, then press Receive.
Please note that I did not disable the New/Reply buttons in feed mode yet, pressing them will give unpredictable results.
I added 2 feeds as defaults so you can test it right away.

Bug where settings file got corrupted should be fixed (can't test it)

Shows status while connecting to access point

Some mail display bugs fixed

Many more things I can't remember

Note that most bugs with incomplete/corrupted messages are because of a bug in dswifi which will be fixed soon.
