    alarm clock features

    Hello all.

    What's the status of the alarm clock? I have been using an audiotron in
    my bedroom, and it has great alarm clock functionality, with several
    independent alarms, each with separate on/off functions for different
    days. I would like to move one of my slim devices up to my bedroom, but
    the alarm functionality is, well, pathetic. I can't even figure out how
    to set different weekday/weekend settings.

    So: I'm thinking about upgrading it ... but: (a) I notice an Alarm
    plugin that has recent work being done; and (b) I'm assuming others have
    had the same problem and are doing something about it. What is the
    current status, and what features does your alarm package support? What
    features do you not have that you would like to see added?

    I was disappointed to see that the Alarm plugin requires a recent
    nightly to access the new INPUT features. When will those features be
    in a release?

    Thanks,
    John

    The alarm that is included with the server is intended to provide only basic
    function. That being, one alarm repeated every 24 hours unless its set to off.

    The plugin, basicaly also written by the same person (me), adds other features
    such as snooze, weekday and weekend limits, ability to edit two lines of the
    lpugin code to make as many alarms as you want by installing more copies of the
    plugin. The recent work uses much of the new input modes in the server in order
    to strip down the size of the plugin and to let it make use of server
    development in future.

    I'm not sure when 5.3 is planned for release, but email me offlist and I can get
    you a version of the plugin that will work for the server v5.2.1. The features
    are the same, but it uses its own code for everything.
