The next pre-version is out. Among the changes:
+ Scroller widgets
* Proper errno messages...
* "make install" should work now
* Joystick driver allows key remapping
+ Screen "durations" are actually *used* now. (oops)
+ Initial support for screen priorities (strict priority queue)
* Small (but annoying!) bugs fixed, which hadn't yet affected anything
+ Drivers support parameters now (MtxOrb, joy, at least)

:)


Something to note:

Previously, you could use multiple drivers by simply using "-d" multiple
times. This still works, but slightly differently. Before, you could do
this:

LCDd -d joy -d MtxOrb

This won't work now. It will cause the joystick driver to attempt to open
"null" as the joystick device, and then wonder what "MtxOrb" is supposed
to mean. Driver parameters are required now, so you'll need to do this
instead:

LCDd -d joy . -d MtxOrb .

The "." simply means "use default settings". Or, you could do this:

LCDd -d joy "-d /dev/js0 --axes EFGH" -d MtxOrb "-c 210"

And, er, don't try to use the same driver twice (yet). :)
