I received it OTA during the last week of December, around the 27th. I had been a solid fan and user of Dolphin (regular, not HD), but when I got wind of Miren via XDA a couple of months ago I tried it out. It was in early beta and I kept close tabs on its progress because it had great early on performance and potential. The developers were in constant dialogue with users via their XDA forum, and were implementing user feedback improvements on a regular basis with constant updates. This was before it hit the market and also before I was using and become a fan of Miui.
In fact it was because of my experience following the early development of Miren that I finally developed enough curiosity and nerve to give Miui a try; I was a diehard Sapphire user, which I really dug because of its stability and CVPCSís integrity as a developer. It was pretty exciting to follow the Miren development, during which a couple of minor suggestions I gave were implemented.
Anyway, during that period there was some Miren browser-testing.apks that were posted in the XDA thread for those who were following the pre-Market beta to download and test. A couple of them came with notices that the user should expect OTA updates. Itís possible that these updates were targeted specifically to the XDA beta tester downloads; I donít know if they were.
The version I just sent you though is an OTA update from those XDA beta downloads. Iíve never downloaded Miren from the Market. All of the versions Iíve had were OTA updates from those early XDA downloads, so I donít know if the version I sent you was on the Market.
I havenít been following the Miren forums in few weeks. Iíve been using my internet Droid time following and participating in the D1 Miui development/porting roller coaster, which has been a lot of fun.
I looked at the current Market post of it and they have changed the version number to 1.2, I donít know when this latest Market version came out. This is the first Iíve seen 1.2. The version number was consistently 1.1 for a while, though the build numbers changed. In the screenshot of the home page in the current market post there are 6 dedicated links (in the black version you zipped for me there are 4). They are labeled in Chinese so I canít read them; perhaps one of them is the RSS link, though the English screenshot of the home page shows only 4 dedicated links: Top Sites; Bookmarks; History; Downloads. The description of recent changes includes the RSS feed reader, the widget, gestures, long-press options, along with other changes.
Itís great that e.c. is willing to theme the version I sent, though I wonder if heís willing to theme the latest version that is posted in the Market. That is of course if it can be themed. I too donít have the skill to do this work, nor the time to allow for my learning curve even if I were to attempt it, so I really appreciate the work that e.c. and others like him put into these. Whatever he decides to do is fine. I love the Miren browser. It is the best browser for my needs.
Thanks e.c. and do take your time. In case you decide to theme the latest version, here is a link to the Mrien Browser Google groups page thatís a preview announcement of the latest 1.2 version. It has a link to the download the 1.2 browser-testing.apk. Iím pretty sure itís the first link listed in the post; I think the two links below it are for testers to provide the developers with foreign language translations.
The 12/8 date coincides with when I received to the OTA, and they make reference to the Market update coming out a few days later, which means the update probably hit the market in the last day or two.
I donít know enough to know whether itís easier to theme the testing-apk or the market version, I just sending it in case it makes your job easier.
Okay, attached is the latest version from the Market, which has all the features Droidlovingyogi listed. e.c., when you get around to blacking this out again, please use this one (like before, I just changed .apk to .zip for uploading purposes). Thanks again for all the fantastic work you do, e.c.!
UPDATE: Oops, DLY, I didn't see your last post until after I posted this one. e.c., I'm sure they're exactly the same, so use whichever is easiest for you!
Just FYI, my Market is linked to Miren again, and the update is showing now. It was updated in the Market today (1/4).
The newest version has been added to the OP...........
ec, are you sure you put the correct file in the link you updated in the OP? Mine is still saying its 1.1 build 129.
Ok, I uploaded the one I have on my phone now, it says 1.2 build 140... give that a try....
Thanks e.c. It downloaded and installed with ease., and is running smooth as silk. A job well done. Thanks again!
