View Full Version : Squeezebox Jive Software Platform

2007-05-01, 15:48
Logitech’s Streaming Media Systems group is pleased to announce a beta release of our Jive software platform, designed to power the development of remote control applications for Squeezebox and Transporter. The key highlights of the Jive platform are:

• Jive Browser, a resolution and color-depth independent renderer that allows us to power a wide range of display types, from monochrome VFDs to full color LCD screens.
• Jive UI, a new, Lua-based, scalable user interface that can be completely customized by anyone familiar with Lua, a powerful, open-source scripting language.

While speculation will likely be rampant as to what this means from a hardware perspective, please understand that Logitech has a policy of not discussing our future hardware plans. We are providing the Jive software platform to our developer community so that you can begin to integrate it into your future plans.

We will be opening up a new forum, and creating a new bugzilla category to support the community’s development efforts. Our engineering team will do their best to be available on the forum to help you with questions and technical issues but their time is limited so we appreciate your patience.

You can find the Jive software and related documentation at http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?Jive.

We’re excited to see your reactions and ideas about what can be done with the Jive platform, and we look forward to working together with you. Thanks for all your support!
