Yesterday, @majorwho and @fuzznfeathers asked me about jibjib for Palm Treo 755p. I have no idea about Palm especially how to run Java application on Palm OS. Luckily, J2ME Polish knows something about Treo 755p. One thing I know now is there is no MMAPI in Treo 755p even though it is MIDP/2.0 and CLDC/1.1. So #jibjib needs a bit modification to detect for MMAPI at compile time. The reason behind the scene is missing
VideoControl. Now I'm ready to roll out new #jibjib beta that supports Palm Treo 755p.
jibjib has been in beta for many months. That is because it is not stable yet. I added so many features and now it is very clutter. The degree of usability dropped a bit and I have heard many feedback about incompatibility issues on some phones or some brands. The way to go is J2ME Polish. I have prepared the code for Polish for a while but no chance to try it yet. Last week, @bact helped me experiment and gave me a patch. As a result, the latest beta and so on of #jibjib will support specific phone devices.
Many people told me jibjib taking picture slower than PlayGround. In fact, the problem is thumbnail function. J2ME does not have native image resize function so I have to implement it myself. I do not understand graphics stuff much so I just copied from somewhere on Internet and the result is this slowness. Today I find another function that runs faster than ever. The optimized code was written by Kamanashis Roy.
Kudos Kamanashis Roy!
