VGA1000 Camera picture filenames now use caption name instead of timestamp based filename Changes in 0 7 28 Many cosmetic and usability tweaks from Adit Panchal BitFling has been fixed When adding images you can tell BitPim what you intend to use the image for eg fullscreen startup image or outside LCD callerid This is all part of a display that lets you select exactly what part of the image you want imported Note that we don t have all the sizes for phone models If you have details on specific image sizes for various uses for phone models then read this set of messages and then post to tbe bitpim user mailing list Sanyo MM 7400 Disabled calendar writing Added 2 more filtering parameters to Calendar Import function Added phone textual memo note feature Added a feature that allows

been increased to what each phone model supports 64 chars on VX4500 and VX6100 48 on VX4600 32 on all other models SK6100 SK Music Slider Pelephone Israel Added basic read only access to the phonebook

Number of wallpaper allowed increased from 30 to 60 Number of camera images allowed increased from 20 to 60 Changes in 0 7 24 Bitmap BMP images with less than 236 colours are saved in the smaller 8 bit format ie using a palette The wallpaper and ringtone displays have been replaced with an improved user interface in both functionality and appearance The wallpaper display now works out image information directly from the file eg you could rename a jpeg to png and it will see work out that it is jpeg You can also organize in various ways try the right click menu The ringtone display also uses the new interface but doesn t have the file type recognition or organizing implemented yet The matching of imported incoming phonebook entries against what you already have has been sped up A C implementation of the Jaro Winkler algorithm is used There is also a progress dialog with estimated remaining time displayed if there is a lot of matching to do multiply the number of incoming items with the number of existing items to get an idea of how much work is done The phonebook and calendar data is now stored in a transactional database we use SQLite behind the scenes which allows for implementing undo archiving of old entries concurrent instances of BitPim storing old data so we can calculate changes for doing syncing and various other goodness The other types of data eg wallpaper and ringtones will also be changing to use this database There is now an improved user interface for adding and editing calendar events Most of the phone modules do not yet support the extra fields available but will do so over the next few releases SCH A670 Phonebook contacts now fully support wallpaper and ringtone assignments Uploaded wallpapers are automatically converted to 128x96 24 bit BMP format and can be used for phonebook wallpaper assignments Better transition in and out of File System mode Calendar repeat events are now supported SCH A650 Wallpaper images with 256 colors or

23 Added option to filesystem browser Brew mode to return phone to modem mode AT commands Known to work for some Samsung and Sanyo models Use with caution on other phones Outlook When importing contacts only email addresses with a a type of SMTP are imported Other ones such as those used for X 400 email are ignored SCH A650 Correctly retrieve and save ringtone assignments in phonebook entries Sanyo MM 7400 Please do not use 0 7 23 for this phone use 0 7 24 or a later version Added option for this phone Assumes that this phone is similar to the PM 8200 If you find bugs or experience timouts and are willing to help debug the driver for this phone please post on one of the mailing lists LG VX6100 Support for this phone has now been added courtesy of John O Shaughnessy Wallpaper reading including camera images and writing works Ringtone reading and writing works Phonebook reading and writing works with the exception that wallpapers set in BitPim are ignored when sent to the phone Calendar reading works Calendar writing does not Changes in 0 7 22 Fix a bug in the import process when two imported entries matched the same existing entry Now the best import entry is always chosen and the underlying data consistency is maintained Fixed SF bug 1062904 users cannot close calendar editor dialog SCH A650 Fixed bugs in reading and writing phonebook calendar wallpapers and ringtones SCH A670 Added support for download of camera pictures as part of wallpaper gets Partial support for caller id assignments in phonebook assignments of ringers and gallery photos not other wallpapers made on phone are preserved in BitPim eGroupware Workarounds for various bugs in eGroupware Note that eGroupware has an issue with categories and you may experience issues when editing in both BitPim and the eGroupware web interface There are some visual glitches in the phonebook import dialog Resize the window and they will go away Long story Changes in 0 7 21 You can now export to eGroupware Windows 95 98 Me The Microsoft Layer For Unicode is now installed with BitPim so you won t get random crashes in MSVCRT DLL Samsung Phones Preliminary support for various features has added for the following phones Various features may be incomplete or buggy SCH A310 Reading and writing of the calendar and phonebook SPH A620 Reading of the phonebook Reading and writing of the calendar Reading of photos from the phone s camera SCH A650 Reading and writing of the phonebook calendar ringtones and wallpaper SCH A670 Reading and writing of the phonebook calendar ringtones and wallpaper Changes in 0 7 20 You can now import phonebook contact information from eGroupware Windows The Microsoft CHM Compressed HTML format help file is now used from within BitPim and so you will get the standard Microsoft Help viewer instead of the wxWidgets one As a bonus the Microsoft Viewer understands stylesheets so you will see the help text in all its green glory Mac py2app is now used for packaging BitPim up Let us know if you see any issues Sanyo Phones Wallpaper written to Sanyo phones is now more likely to be accepted by the phone The PNG files are converted to 8 bit colour and the size of the colour map is reduced to make the file size less than 16K Changes in 0 7 19 Various minor tweaks and cleanups Sometimes Outlook comma separates the Categories field instead of semi colon like normal BitPim now deals with this in the import Fixed omitted field that was caused by importing vcards with a uid field LG VX7000 Support for this phone has now been added thanks to a phone loan by RPI Wireless LG took the opportunity to make the firmware functionality and quality worse than their previous phones There may still be some problems where the code assumes the phone won t be as stupid as it actually is The phonebook reading and writing works although there may be some minor issues with the writing due to the new restricted fields available It also looks like the speed dials might not be written exactly right due to the phone re arranging some phone numbers some of the time LG halved the number of phone number types available Phone number types that the phone doesn t have eg Pager are ignored The phone is very reluctant to reveal how many phonebook entries are present BitPim works around this but the workaround will fail if you have no entries at all Consequently do not ask BitPim to read the phonebook if it is empty Calendar reading writing doesn t work They tweaked some of the fields since prior phone models Wallpaper and ringtone reading and writing work The BitPim code currently limits you to 50 of each If anyone knows what the real limit is or why the phone goes to the trouble of storing the total amount of space used by the ringtones and wallpapers then please post on bitpim devel Sanyo Phones Allow entries with no name Linux BitPim is now packaged using cx Freeze 3 0 Changes in 0 7 18 You can now filter by categories in the import dialogs Your previous settings for the filters eg requiring a name number email address etc as well as the categories are remembered vCard import now understands charsets instead of always using ISO 8859 1 It also correctly deals with vCards already in a Unicode file as Apple Addressbook likes to do All the standard character set converters are now included with the binary distribution of BitPim instead of just two or three This allows almost any charset to be used in vcards An issue with transparency and black backgrounds on 16 bit colour displays on Windows was fixed thanks to Kevin Swan for providing the test files and screenshots We decided to stay with wxPython 2 5 Currently the Mac version is not Unicode but the other platforms are That will be addressed in the future Many minor tweaks and fixes for GUI issues reported on the mailing lists Thanks to all those who took the time to give accurate reproducible reports Fixed a filesystem protocol issue where the LG VX7000 was behaving differently than all the other phones This will fix some Motorola V710 issues as well Sanyo Phones For some Sanyo phones the default first phone number for each name will be preserved for reads and writes Deleting call alarms read from phone won t cause exception Pre 0 7 18 calendar data must be overwritten by reading from phone Samsung A620 Added support for downloading camera pictures No support yet for phonebook calendar wallpapers etc Changes in 0 7 17 The only change in this version is that BitPim now uses wxPython 2 5 wxPython is the library BitPim uses for the user interface GUI This is a significant stability and compatibility upgrade against the previous version of wxPython Mac users in particular should notice a big difference For Linux users the underlying library is changed from GTK1 to GTK2 which is nicer as well Note We have not made any bug fixes or any other behavioral changes This is so that we can distinguish issues being with the upgrade to wxPython 2 5 vs generic in BitPim With the upgrade to wxPython 2 5 BitPim now also uses unicode for the user interface We have not yet tested how the phones will deal with this They likely won t like it We will be fixing this is future BitPim releases You are advised not to try non ascii characters until we fixed the various phone modules to cope with it correctly Changes in 0 7 16 The correct entries are used when you use selected entries for phonebook printing or vCard export You can now select all with Ctrl A delete with the Del key and add new with Ctrl N in most panes Speed dials are now shown in square brackets in the various phonebook views The dialog that helps show how newly read phonebook data is merged with existing data is back with completely new user interface Please click the Help button to understand what it is showing and how to change things US phonenumbers are now normalised and formatted in a standard way Other phone numbers are left alone Improved vcard output Unfortunately several programs refuse to import them despite following the standard to the letter Any assistance in figuring out how the other programs are broken would be appreciated Some changes to the underlying code for escaping and unescaping characters in the protocols This was needed because the Samsung SCH A650 was unnecessarily escaping data which the code didn t account for Thanks to Stu Grossman for discovering this When you double click on a field in the phonebook the editor starts up with focus on that field More columns are available in the phonebook view They are of interest if you have entries with lots of data eg more than 5 phone numbers Note that BitPim has always stored all data it just didn t have columns pre defined for all of it You must use a device driver instead of direct USB access to phones modem interfaces or USB to serial devices Although the help makes this somewhat clear many users try anyway BitPim will now mark those interfaces as unavailable Windows Some of the packages BitPim uses started leaving off version numbers on their DLLs This caused the installer to not replace the older files with the new ones The installer has now been told to always replace files in the BitPim program files directory That will ensure upgrades and downgrades always work as expected as of 0 7 16 anyway Thanks to Allen Day for finding the underlying cause Sanyo phones Fixed reading of calendar which was broken in 0 7 15 Sanyo SCP 4920 Really actually fix the ordering of phone number types Changes in 0 7 15 You can now export the phonebook in vCard format Note that this code is still a work in progress and is still being worked on The vCard standard is hairy and no other program implements vCards 100 to the letter so the export code is trying to deal with that Also note that there is a bug that means the wrong entries are output when you ask to export just the selected ones This will be fixed in the next release The same bug affects printing and no one had spotted it You can now import Evolution contacts that are not stored in db files BitPim runs evolution addressbook exporter behind the scenes Note that you must be running Evolution 1 4 for this to work Code from Peter Pletcher Sanyo phones Fixed crash on upload of some calendar entries Events written to phone will show proper alarm interval on phone Media write code will only try to write wallpaper and ringers that are not already on phone Media code will not try to write camera pictures BitPim will still often encounter errors from the phone Usually Sanyo Error code 109 because of Sanyo file size limitations See the note on Sanyo Error Codes for more information Sanyo SCP 4920 Actually fix the ordering of phone number types so that they agree on the phone and in BitPim 0 7 13 fix didn t work Sanyo SCP 8100 Bell Mobility Canada Fixed reading and writing of the phonebook Changes in 0 7 14 There is no longer any console output on Linux or Mac and there shouldn t be the I O errors on Windows which were indirectly caused by console output issues when a console isn t present vCard reading sped up considerably If the files supplied for CSV or vCard import are in Unicode eg UTF 16 then they will be read correctly You can now import contacts from Qtopia Desktop eg as used with the Sharp Zaurus The dialog used to confirm a phonebook being read in imported is now not shown It was coming up blank for many Mac users and was somewhat user unfriendly anyway Any UI designers out there want to help work on a replacement LG VX4500 Speed dials now read written correctly Sanyo Phones Reduce WALLPAPER HEIGHT for several phones so that wallpaper uploads won t fail Sanyo SCP 8100 Bell Canada Initial support for the Bell Canada version of the SCP 8100 The firmware in this phone is somewhat different from Sprint 8100 This release can read the phonebook wallpaper and ringers from the phone However writing to the phonebook and reading writing the calendar will crash BitPim Changes in 0 7 13 You can now import contacts from Outlook The importing should work well You can import contacts from Evolution You may experience some issues Please include an exported vcard of any problem records if you make any bug reports The Evolution importer uses the vCard importer behind the scenes so please read the notes below You can import contacts from vCards You may experience some issues Please include the vcard if you make any bug reports Note The vCard import code is very slow and the vCard standard is a great big hairy mess that no program implements correctly BitPim does its best part of the reason the code is slow There will be speed ups in future releases BitPim no longer makes any attempt to convert ringtones you add to be in a valid format That functionality will be added in the next major release Considerably sped up the display of images in the right hand pane for wallpaper view LG Phones If the phonebook has multiple entries with the same serial number which is a serious problem then BitPim detects this and raises an alert Sanyo Phones Added ability to write wallpaper and ringers for all Sanyo phones See the Ringer Wallpaper section of the Sanyo notes for further information Sanyo SCP 4920 Fixed ordering of phone number types so that they agree on the phone and in BitPim Changes in 0 7 12 Version number system is now sane The development series is now 0 7 12 Keystrokes work correctly again in the calendar Some tweaks in the filesystem directory reading protocol as some phone models added a spurious extra byte eg Kyocera KX414 Sanyo phones qcp ringtones are now also transferred from the phone Sanyo SCP 4900 Preliminary support to transfer ringers and images to the phone This may work for the SCP 5300 and SCP 7200 if you set the phone to the 4900 in BitPim Sanyo PM 8200 Can now write phonebook and calendar to the phone Sanyo RL 4920 Added support for this phone Please provide feed back if there are problems Changes in 0 7 test 11 Started code to import Outlook Contacts disabled in this build Various minor tweaks and bug fixes for issues commonly occurring in the mailing lists Tweaked where the settings that remembered window sizes and positions is stored to make the config file registry a little cleaner The first time you run this version it will use the default sizes positions and remember them from that point on Sanyo phones Transfer of ringtones from phone fixed For those phones that support media downloads namely everything except 4900 and 5300 Sanyo PM 8200 is still read only Changes in 0 7 test 10 The routines to switch into Brew mode and LG phonebook mode have been tweaked and should be more reliable Mac The preferences and About dialog are now in the normal place for Mac applications Audiovox CDM8900 This phone is no longer supported by BitPim Do not use this phone with BitPim Do not ask for support The internal software in this phone is very fragile and the phone can be rendered completely inoperable through trivial operations LG TM520 VX10 The code has been re instated for this phone The other LG items in this change log do not apply to this phone which uses different code LG VX4600 Reading writing wallpapers and ringtones for this phone added Status of phonebook and calendar is not known LG phones BitPim previously required that entries have at least one phone number
