In Spring, Meego 1.0 was released, and today version 1.1 is now available. “The smartphone OS is a combination of Nokia’s Maemo and Intel’s Moblin ,” reported Inquirer’s Spencer Dalziel, “so it’s no wonder that this latest release looks like it was tailor made to fit Nokia’s excellent N900.”
Notable changes in this release: * Doubleclick zoom slider for 100% * Added "Zoom to cursor" option (on by default) * Show current magnification when zooming Testing QA page: http://maemo.org/packages/package_instance/view/fremantle_extras-testing_free_armel/presencevnc/0.7/ 2010-10-30 17:37 UTC with score -4
After recently writing about the broken contribution process in Qt , I got a little bit inspired to see what the current ‘lay of the land’ of the Qt contribution ecosystem looks like. So, I did what any self-respecting hacker would do, and wrote a quick script over the course of a few hours to generate the statistics I wanted. Beware, gitstats takes a long while to run over repositories with a big history.
We had a session about application QA in last weeken’d GSoC Mentor Summit . I explained how the Maemo Downloads approval process works in a completely open, crowdsourced way . This differs from many distributions where approval of new packages involves obscure decisions and secret handshakes.
So the other day I posted that the Nokia N900 was able to run webOS games as shown in the video on Engadget. A reader, Kumar , submitted a comment to my post that linked to his installation guide that gives you step-by-step instructions for getting your N900 up and running.
