Tomorrow morning. I just pushed a release.
Changes don't get pushed to appspot until we push a release.

Hey, has anyone made additional headway on allowing a homebrew repository's files to be used alongside standard "official" ones?
I still haven't found a way to get my homebrew codex files onto any devices besides my PC.

Is the homebrew repo in BSData?

Negative; that's why they wanted a separate repo. It uses the same .gst, too.

Ahh. @amis92 were you looking into this?

@Space0din I've also confirmed with the man himself that the feature to import files (game systems and catalogs, separate from repositories) on Android is gone in 2.0.

I'm sure it's there if you're under root.
Unless 2.0 is streaming XML files in cache from the website ...
which just seems dumb.

It wasn't a permissions change, just a design change, according to Mister BattleScribe.

Huh, that seems like a step back

Oh no, you heard it from Jon, it is what it is.
Just seems like a step backwards in functionality

I mean, I see his point (something about not being "the Android way to do things"), but I'm actually starting to see more "browse/open" files things in more recent Android apps, rather than the other way around.
If I wanted feature-limited, auto-magic hand-holding, I'd buy a device with glowing fruit on it. ;)
Perhaps the new data structure makes it painful to implement.

Hey, my iphone doesn't have glowing fruit.
Just silver fruit.
on the back.
Covered by a case.
So no fruit at all really.

Ah. Thus far, I've placed all my files into both DropBox and Google Drive, but they still won't work on any device.
Like, if the mobile version could download BSRs, I'd be golden, presumably.
