Another week of hard work brings a new testing image, lets hear it for the kernel, 
paroli and freesmartphone.org teams. As always it still has some issues ( that 
we are still working on )

The gta01 image boots but calling it working is a bit of a stretch.
	- Call volume is so low as to be nearly non-existent
	- usb networking is broken ( probably a modules issue )
	- paroli tries to initialize the wifi on gta01
	- some menus missing from settings ( illume profile switch for one )

Images and kernels can be found here 

Details for flashing, bug reporting and debug logging can be found here 

Features ( this includes some from last week )

Paroli settings screen 
	- settings enabled by default ( Hold AUX for a few seconds )
	- SIM settings 
	- Network settings ( these are carrier dependant )
		Network selection and roaming status
		Call forwarding
	- Wifi settings ( custom /etc/network/interfaces files will confuse connman )
	- change illume profile ( paroli fulsscreen or illume )
	- GPRS settings
	  	APN settings
	  	enable or disable GPRS 
	- phone profile settings menu 
	 	ringtone volume
	  	vibration on incoming call
	  	message volume
	  	vibration on incoming message

New feature's in the FSO framework
	- Configurable ntp server 
	- Automatic time setting ( requires GPS or network connection )
	- Automatic timezones for mutlizone countries

Bugs fixed 
	- Power button does not shutdown device 
	- otimed sets timezone incorrectly in large countries FSO 389
	- Power status events ignored FSO 381
	- feeds are incorrectly set to unstable


PS for the power users that would just like to do an opkg update; opkg upgrade it
won't work.  At the very minimum you will need to 
opkg remove -force-depends frameworkd paroli 
and then reinstall them ( and no -force-reinstall won't be enough )
