Starting out this new series of betas with 0.7.0 "House of Fun" release. Don't be distracted by the small bump in numbers, this is a massive release with lots of good stuff: note editing, two-way sync, tablet support, rich editing and more!

Noah is the man behind all that good work so cheers to him!

It is *not* intended to be an android market release yet as we would like to get feedback and testing done in our local community first. But remember that I pushed 0.5.0 to the Market yesterday and that I intend to push 0.6.0 there also.

Tomdroid is a Tomboy compatible wikiwiki note-taking application for Android.

This latest release is available at: https://launchpad.net/tomdroid/+download. Point your Android browser over there and click on the top .apk file. Alternate installation instructions are available in the README file.

Tomdroid 0.7 beta - "House of Fun" - Editing and Two-Way Sync!

Editing Features:
 * Rich text editor for editing and formatting notes (credit: http://code.google.com/p/android-richtexteditor/)
 * Ability to create new notes
 * Ability to delete local notes
 * Automatic renaming of notes on duplicate title (as Note 1, Note 2, etc.)
 * Note saved automatically on pause
 * Ability to revert changes

Sync Features:
 * Two-way sync by default, one-way "pull" sync via "Revert" button
 * Note conflict resolution screen when notes are of different date and both older or newer than last sync date
 * Automatic authentication - if you use Ubuntu One, pressing "Sync" on first launch is enough to authenticate and sync
 * updating progress bar with information on current task, number of notes
 * switching sync services/servers doesn't clear notes database anymore
 * switching sync servers clears authentication, doesn't authenticate (see "Automatic authentication", above)

UI Tweaks:
 * moved Tomdroid toolbar into native ActionBar (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/tomdroid/+spec/actionbar-redesign)
 * added basic tablet integration (https://blueprints.launchpad.net/tomdroid/+spec/tablet-ui)

Preference Tweaks
 * Added preference for changing base font size
 * Added preference button for backing up notes to SD card (when using online sync)
 * Added preference button for removing all notes from remote service
 * added option to hide/show note templates
 * added option to clear local notes database (useful if switching sync services)

Misc:
 * fixed SQL query should use "?" (lp:880322)
