Re: Firenzina 2.4.3 xTreme

This is an unplanned release, thank you for the reminder! I made the sources available at http://www.firenzina.org/Firenzina_2-4-3_sources.zip . These sources do not contain the code added to 2.4.1 to port it for Android. Also, the 2-4-3 branch of the GitHub does not contain the right code, please ...
