Lots more work on ALICE. I finally finished binding all of the speech commands to events in mp3_module, the MP3 player, and added a couple more useful events to lcd_module, the module which handles all of the LCD display functions. The last few major issues are all resolved (problems with song scrolling, and double execution of spoken commands). Having done this, I'm refining a few functional, but rough edges, cleaning up the documentation, and taking time to test everything a little more thoroughly.
The temptation to add new features at this stage is incredibly great. For that reason, I can't wait to get a beta out the door, and start work on the 1.1 branch!
A quick thanks to my current beta tester, Jed Parsons, who's brave enough to withstand daily builds. Thanks also to jooon, who made encouraging comments.
Best of luck to everyone with their respective projects,
