It’s been over two months since I’ve released a new stable release of gPodder. Now it’s time again to catch up with some of the fixes that have landed in the “master” branch of gPodder (while we are still adding cool stuff to the “tres” branch, where the QML UI and other improvements happen). Anyway, gPodder 2.16 “Over There” should be available in Maemo Extras for both Diablo and Fremantle soon, please test the package and (in case of Fremantle / Maemo 5) also vote for it, so it can land in Extras eventually.
For the Nokia N950 (and also for the N9), there’s already a very early alpha build of the QML for you to try – please note that you might have to remove your database and downloads to be compatible with any changes when the final version is out. There’s a thread on forum.meego.com with instructions on how to get it and a screenshot – please also use this forum thread for feedback and any questions that you may have.
In related Maemo/MeeGo news, That Rabbit Game has been packaged for MeeGo Tablet and should be available in AppUp already. There’s also a pure OpenGL ES port for webOS, although it’s missing some features of the Qt version. If you haven’t been following gaming news, our multi-touch game Mong (which is going to have its new name “Plonk” soon) is available for MeeGo tablets and I’ll have a Harmattan package for you to try really soon! There is also the Harmattan Event Feed Library for Python which should make posting data to the event feed awesome. And if you really want to port your PySide apps to Android, try PySide for Android, which has just been released today. Yes, lots of stuff happening – expect more in the coming days/weeks
