Written for Tomdroid by Olivier Bilodeau on 2012-08-17

Hi everyone,

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.

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