July 2012: Vehicle profile now working: The scheme has been in navit.xml for ages, but didn't work until rev. #5192. It allows you to set the speeds more accurately and more differentially for each road type. If your navit.xml is outdated, make sure to update it as there are two additional new vehicle profiles. One for the shortest route and one to avoid tolls.
May 2012: Android: A recent change in the source for the Android port has resulted in a flood of verbal directions. The change in the source automatically loads all *.bin files located in /sdcard/navit/, irrespective of their inclusion in navit.xml. If you are having issues, please remove all mapsets from your navit.xml. For more info, see #1039.
February 2012: Scrolling implemented in Internal GUI!
It's been a while since the last news item, but this is worthy of a shout out! Thanks to the great work of the Navit developers, you can now scroll through all lists in the Internal GUI! To get this feature, make sure you download and install a version of Navit with a revision greater than r4940.
