open source iLiad V2 easy to handle?
since i have heard about ePub format is not working on the iLiad V2, and since i heard from the guys from iRex they dont hurry to update this wonderfull machine, i was thinking to do it myself.
in april 2009 iLiad V2 is open source so i was curious if there is anyone who can help me with that...to make iLiad comapatible with ePub format.

Your plan has to aspects:
If you have developed software on a Linux box before: these notes might give you a quick start.

As to epub support, there is already an epub reader - FBReader for iLiad. You should try FBReader before creating you own epub reader from scratch.
If you are determined to develop your own epub reader, you can start from creating a C (or C++) based GTK+ app and using the SDK provided by iRex to compile. As to screen refresh, using xepdmgr will save most of your effort. As to controlling LED flashing and buttons on iLiad, they are already demisterified, too. So, the only thing left for you to do is concentrating on coding the epub parsing and drawing contents on screen.
I would suggest creating a general epub reader for Linux/GTK+ environment, and then add some spcific code to accomodate it to iLiad.
