From using Joyride 2024, the new GUI option seems user-friendly
(though the user needs to have the jabber_server_name written down
beforehand, so he can type it in). But the old CLI option is still
being supported -- and in its current state I find it confusing and
inconsistent. The CLI should be friendlier (or be done away with).
I myself think frame activation at the corners is an abomination -
but as long as the "Software Release Notes" CLEARLY tell the user:
"Here is how to get rid of it", I'll accept it being on by default.
[ Though using '2000' to mean 'never' seems strange (are floating
point numbers being compared ?) ]
What I myself do on other hw is to go into 'keyhandler.py', and
define a spare F-key to be 'frame'. Then I can activate the frame
using my non-XO keyboard.
