Angstrom Opie 1.2.3 testing

Testing images of the Ångström distribution containing Opie 1.2.3 are now available for many devices, see this page for details. If your device is listed, we would welcome your testing and feedback.

This has been a long time coming, and I'd like to thank everyone who helped make it possible. Of course this is just a step towards Opie becoming supported in Angstrom - we'll allow at least a month for people to test and then we'll evaluate the situation, and possibly after further tweaking be able to release final images, populate feeds and finally declare Opie as supported.

Meanwhile, over the holidays I have been making quite a few fixes in Opie CVS to be included in 1.2.4 - many of them fix bugs that have annoyed me and no doubt others for a while now, which is very satisfying. Included were changes to make VMemo actually usable, many small improvements in AdvancedFM, better alarm sound playback in the Clock, and some others. Once Opie 1.2.3 becomes supported in at least one distribution we can start to think about doing the 1.2.4 release.
