<h2>Recent CVS activity</h2>
<p>
<!--#include file="lastcvs.link" -->

<h2>Roadmap</h2>
<p>This is a rough indication of which features we plan/expect/hope to be
included in which versions. Naturally, this is all subject to change without
notice.

<dl>
<dt><b>Version 2.0</b>
<dd> Recording, Autobuild playlists, File/directory management
</dl>

<h2>About the hardware</h2>

<p>I wrote a <a href="internals/bjorn.html">"dissection" page</a> some months ago,
showing the inside of the Archos and listing the main components.
I have also collected a couple of <a href="docs/">data sheets</a>.
Also, don't miss the <a href="notes.html">research notes</a>
from my reverse-engineering the firmware.

<h2>About the software</h2>

<p>The player has one version of the firmware in ROM.
The first thing this version does after boot is to look for a file called
"archos.mod" on the Player/Studio or "ajbrec.ajz" on the recorder in the
root directory of the harddisk. 
If it exists, it is loaded into RAM and started.
This is how firmware upgrades are loaded. Note that you can revert to the ROM
version by just deleting the firmware file.
