  1. TODO
  2. This file contains a list of things to be done and a list of what's done
  3. already.
  4. Any entry starting with an X is completed.
  5. Any entry starting with an / is "half" completed
  6. --------------------------------------------------------------------------
  7. For the 0.10 release:
  8. X suspend logging during setting PIN/PUK.
  9. X add checks whether user is part of 'dialout' and 'uucp' groups
  11. - even if *time* limit is hit, still data limit mentioned in warning dialog.
  12. - that dialog is not i18n aware
  13. X BUG:
  14. X ###P1 t=935: ERROR: APN contains illegal character
  15. this error should be visible to the GUI user, too.
  16. X it also means that the checks in the profile dialog need to improve
  17. X Create a new popup class that saves whether the customer wants to see the dialog again
  18. X add a "welcome" at umtsmon start
  19. X add a "please create a profile" at gui start
  20. X Sierra Wireless Aircard 875 returns a number (I saw 23201 once) as operator - that should be masked...
  21. - Novatel devices do this, too
  22. - Huawei also sometimes
  23. * (observed on Novatel cards only): if subsequent calls to AT+COPS do not return
  24. the operator namei (but an empty string), make sure you cached the previous instance.
  25. NOTE: first research why - this might be due to CREG/CGREG or so...
  26. X implement number-to-operator cache
  27. X use cache
  28. X on single port cards (maybe also on multi-port cards)
  29. not having autoupdate radio prefs on, will hang umtsmon after
  30. shutting down the network connection
  31. X I18n changes:
  32. X make setting for non-en_US language persistent
  33. X get list of all possible languages
  34. X add menu option to set language from GUI
  35. * Indonesian, thanks to Andika Triwidada
  36. * Russian, thanks to Soussine Viktor
  37. X auto connect option
  38. X only allow auto connect when previously a connection was successful for that profile
  39. X ensure device switching can be automated, too
  40. X hardware enablement:
  41. X finish Option HSO device support
  42. X Solomon SCMi 250u
  43. X Ericsson F3507g
  44. X add Device class name and port info to System info dialog
  45. X remember if roaming last time, so can show right stats at startup
  46. * ConnectionInfo(ACM) - if a device doesn't work well on CGREG, we should make
  47. the registration be part of the signal quality. i.e. always ask for signal quality
  48. and make the registration depend on that. This requires changing the isDeviceRegistered()
  49. and other members.
  50. * ConnectionInfoACM seems to work as fine as ConnectionInfo does. Why have two?
  51. - of course not entirely true: roaming info is missing
  52. * BUG:
  53. * Huawei modems no longer understand roaming vs home network
  54. X various bugs fixed and optimizations around profiles:
  55. - better handling of empty APN
  56. - ability to set a profile from the command line
  57. - immediately edit a profile after you create a new one
  58. X CID is now configurable from the config file
  59. X umtsmon no longer requires device to be fully operational at start
  60. the device can now even be inserted after umtsmon has started
  61. * The UI is sluggish
  62. - move autodetection to a separate background thread
  63. - fix the UIState to become a proper state machine
  64. X allow for extra options in ppp through the /etc/ppp/peers file
  65. --------------------------------------------------------------------------
  67. * really make Aircard 875 (860/881U) work
  68. * umtsmon crashes when a system comes out of suspend
  69. * network operator wizard should also retrieve signal info for all operators
  70. * check if the output of usb_modeswitch was good - or do we need to run again?
  71. * auto update of stats should be always enabled until registered.
  72. * check if UMTS card is forced to a specific network because if that
  73. network is not available, you won't get a connection automatically
  74. * Fix network selection of Novatel XU870
  75. * move testersettings stuff from the various *_main.cpp files to TestFrame.cpp
  76. * TO BE REPORTED BUG: when a usb serial plug is inserted *AND* a usb2serial-based card like the
  77. Option, the new autodetection code will decide ttyUSB0 and ttyUSB3 first.
  78. the test for AT will fail - the card will only use ttyUSB3. Not good.
  79. / Fix flickering of LCDDisplay
  80. * add a dialog that shows the progress of AutoDetect
  81. * on single port cards, a malfunctioning PPP might leave the port in undefined state
  82. * fix operation on 2.6.20 kernels (Bug #1662877)
  83. * check if HSDPA is used and show in display
  84. * if multiple Profiles exist, make the "Connect" button a drop-down or add a dialog.
  85. * show the currently selected Profile on the mainwindow
  86. * add a "STOP" feature that kills all network connections and
  87. performs a "cardctl eject" command - only if pcmcia kernel module is loaded
  88. note: "cardctl eject" on Suse 9.3, "pccardctl eject" on Suse 10.1
  89. note: on Suse, this command is suid root, but we can run things as root anyway now
  90. -> this feature should only exist for PCMCIA, as it makes no sense on USB
  91. -> this feature is dangerous on nozomi cards as it might freeze the whole system
  92. * fix compilation for QT4 (Bug # 1527835)
  93. -> only go to QT4 if it doesn't impact the amount of required libraries
  94. * remove all assert(false) from the code
  95. * Wizards for PPP configuration
  96. * SMS handling:
  97. * do code page translation as the character sets don't match
  98. * add receiving SMS
  99. * Make single serial port cards co-exist with PPP
  100. (not by mutual exclusion as it is now, but by interrupting data streams)
  101. See note in SerialPort.cpp: This code can be derived from modem.cpp in kppp.
  102. Reportedly, also OpenMoko's gsmd can do this for us.
  103. * more graphics
  104. - animated connect and search network graphics?
  105. - adjust font sizes for DPI settings in LCDDisplay
  106. * diagnose more configuration errors
  107. * installers
  108. * (See Bug 1856802) for some device/operator, the MTU changes between GPRS and
  109. UMTS operation. The only workaround is currently to set a fixed MTU in
  110. the file /etc/ppp/options, which then is used for both radio modes.
  111. * add location identification, like shown in this application:

  114. History of releases:
  115. What was in the 0.1 release:
  116. X enter pin code during startup to unlock the card
  117. X switching of network operators
  118. X SMS sending
  119. X some detection of Option GT cards
  120. What was new in the 0.2 release:

  126. X create basic website
  127. X if umtsmon is started immediately after card was inserted, the SIM
  128. interface might not have been initialised yet. That's currently handled
  129. incorrectly: we *should* allow some time and poll for the interface to
  130. become available.
  131. What was in the 0.3 release:
  132. X card autodetection
