I released test version 0.1.2 to a limited number of signed-up testers yesterday. The main focus was to determine if the major issues with the previous test round had been resolved, so I wanted to limit to a few who had experienced those issues.

The good news is that, yes, the significant issues that prevented the plugin working and, in fact broke, some LMS installs completely ( :-O ) are now resolved. Indeed, a couple of testers actually managed to get the whole thing working and controlled squeezeboxes by voice. Success.

Of course, that success is tempered by bugs but at least they're the solvable, pliant kind of bugs, not the 'OMFG it's destroyed everything, including the neighbours house' kind of bugs.

The project is also sparking some interesting discussions around security and community development that are areas I haven't been very involved in before so a lot of learning going on as well.
