Happy New Year Maemo Community! As we move into the new year, we’re also faced with a very new phase of life — that is, complete control of the maemo.org infrastructure, meaning community governance of the Maemo Community and everything that it implies (community servers and software repositories, various maemo-related software and technology, the talk.maemo.org forum and wiki, etc.). It’s a lot to fathom, but we are certain that if any community can handle it, this one can. Fundraising Likewise, most of you know that the new changes require that we, as a community, foot the bill for all of these new responsibilities
Recapping from my last blog article ; I worked a bit on this concept during the weekend. When a program is responsible for delivery of a file to the file system that program knows precisely when the rename syscall, completing the file transfer transaction, takes place. An example of such a program is an MTP daemon.
We’d like to take a minute to unveil the new Hildon Foundation website: http://hildonfoundation.org As you’ll see, there is a fairly easy way to donate to the Hildon Foundation and the Maemo Community: http://hildonfoundation.org/support/ This is the same method that’s being used here on tmo : http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1303767
Working with open hardware Some weeks ago at LinuxCon EU in Barcelona I talked about how to use QEMU to improve the reliability of device drivers. At Igalia we have been using this for some projects.
Today Last week I finally joined the Wikimedia Foundation , with my US visa renewed and all the bureaucratic requirements in place. I work at the Platform Engineering team, reporting to Sumana Harihareswara and having other (remote) neighbors like Guillaume Paumier , Chris McMachon and Andre Klapper (of GNOME & Maemo/MeeGo fame, what a coincidence!). I feel happy.

I have been working on a new application for the Nokia N9 and N950, which I call “Mae-Fi”.
Dear Maemo Community, As long-time supporters and contributors — and, in all humility, quite honored to be counted among all of you — we, the inaugural Hildon Foundation Board felt it necessary that we put forth an open, public statement about how we feel the “Board” should be considered and engaged with. At this point, the first Board meeting minutes have been published for public review. As we hope you’ll see, it is nothing but the Maemo Community’s best interests that we are concerned with.

As my mate Simón was writing short time ago in his post Announcing the Gallery Tilt Shift plugin for the Nokia N9 , we got published at Igalia some plugins for enhancing the experience of the built-in Gallery application in the N9/N950 through the Nokia Store : Enlarge & Shrink Plugin , Gallery Tilt Shift Plugin , and Facerecognition Resetter Plugin . The Enlarge & Shrink Plugin is a filter developed by Antía Puentes for the built-in Gallery application which applies a radial distortion to a picture featuring an enlarge or shrink effect (also known as punch or pinch).
