Droid Exporer Update

It has been a while since there has been any real progress on Droid Explorer. We now have a couple other active developers on the project, one of which is working on a Mono port of the Droid Explorer.

We have also started integrating Mad Bee (Managed Android Debug Bridge) in to the core of Droid Explorer. What does that mean, you ask? Well, it means, that there will be more support for devices, including devices that are NOT ROOTED. Obviously, you will not have the functionality that requires root, but you will have everything else. This is an on going process, so initially, support for non-rooted devices may not exist, as it is now in Droid Explorer.

I have also started to make some needed changes to address the issues with using the latest android SDK, since google decided to change the location of where the platform tools reside, and moving ADB in to the new location. The screenshot plug has had some minor fixes as well, so more devices should now successfully take screenshots.

Keep your eyes open for version 0.8.8.0 release this week, maybe even as early as tonight.
