2013-05-07 - Released version 0.3.17
Added support to create a local backup copy of your workout for every upload.
2012-11-15 - Plugin got accepted to debian sid
The plugin is now an official debian sid package. Thanks to Ralf Treinen!
2012-09-12 - Opencaching.com now supported
Previously it did not work to download caches from opencaching.com. This has now been fixed (for file based devices).
2012-07-03 - CentOS 6 build added
A build for CentOS 6 has been added to the Open Suse Buildservice
2012-06-05 - Fedora 17 build added
I just added Fedora 17 to the OpenSuse Build System. I did not test the build, some feedback would be nice. BTW: No feedback from Garmin to my sponsoring request, I guess I will request on the US website again (so far I only requested on the Austrian website)
2012-01-26 - Sponsoring requested…
I found out that Garmin offers sponsorship. It would be perfect to get Garmin as a sponsor for new devices, so I applied for a sponsorship and requested some Forerunner models, mostly the ones with Ant+ technology (currently not supported by the plugin). Let's see how this turns out…
2012-01-11 - Added a Fedora / OpenSUSE repository
In addition to the Launchpad repository for Ubuntu a new repository for Fedora and OpenSUSE users exists and can be found here: software.opensuse.org
2011-11-13 - Added Fedora 15/16 RPMs in Version 0.3.5
I still have to set up virtual machines to build for other distributions than Ubuntu, since all my builds in the OpenSuse Build System turn out to be somehow broken - this makes it time consuming to build for other distributions.
2011-11-04 - Fix for empty tracks
Version 0.3.5 has been released. Some users reported that the fitness history showed up correctly, but when trying to transfer the data to the computer they ended up with an empty track. Problem was that the browser asked the plugin for a track name that did not exist, since my plugin interpreted the track name incorrectly and added some extra characters to the end (NPString is not null-terminated).
2011-10-16 - Oneiric
I have released the version 0.3.4 for Ubuntu Oneiric (11.10). After some build problems it now seems to work.
There are still problems accessing the Edge/Forerunner 205/305. The plugin uses the package garmin_forerunner_tools which also runs into a timeout (same problem for my plugin) - even as root it is not able to open the device.
andreas@ubuntuoniric:~$ sudo garmin_get_info usb_set_configuration failed: could not set config 1: Connection timed out garmin unit could not be opened!
Solution: Currently unknown! I did file a bug report.
