Pushing patches

AFC backend

A couple of hours ago, I committed the AFC backend to gvfs. This means you should now be able to access the storage on your iPhones and iPod Touches. Note that this does not include music syncing yet, as the feature would belong in libgpod.

This feature has also available in Fedora 12 repositories for a couple of weeks. Just make sure you install gvfs-afc.

Moblin work

After updating gupnp in rawhide a bit too quick, I was left with the task to port bickley to gupnp 0.13. Rygel is working nicely with this after a bit of back and forth with Zeeshan. The preferences still need a bit of love though.

I also ported network-manager-netbook to NetworkManager 0.8 with Dan's help.

Finally, dalston's volume control bits got updated cut'n'paste code from the latest gnome-media.

All the patches are sitting in the upstream bugzillas or repos, and are already in the Fedora 12 Moblin packages.

does this also mean that you can browse appletalk networks with gvfs with afc? or is this another thing and requires another backend for example with afpfs-ng?

Bjoern: The AFC backend has nothing to do with AppleTalk, AFC is the name of the proprietary protocol used over USB for iPhones and iPod Touches.

You, sir, are a god, and your friends are superstars. If this ends up freeing me from ever seeing iTunes again, I can not thank you enough. :)

I can't tell you how happy I would be to see this allow me to synch my iPhone!

So the next step is some changes to libgpod?
