Following Etrunko, who was the most rushed :P, I must announce that Canola 2, a media player for the Nokia tablets (but not restricted to them!), was set free! It is now available under GPLv3 and its code can be reached here. There you’ll find some instructions on how to build it, made by Etrunko.

I must only warn some of you that, for reasons already raised by Etrunko there, to this date there seems to be issues regarding some of the EFL python bindings. You are encouraged to wait a little bit, until they are fixed, help to fix them or try to stick to a revision older them Enlightenment repo’s HEAD (can’t say which will work). Profusion is also going to post instructions on how to build it, it won’t take long.

Another important thing is that Google Summer of Code 2009 did accept Maemo as one of its organizations. There are project ideas on Canola 2 plugins and I have applied as a mentor to one of them. I (glima) would joyfully embrace any plugin idea on Canola, but I’m specially interested on musical stuff (blip.fm anyone, now that last.fm has lost most of it charm?) :).

Finally, we hope you all enjoy hacking on Canola 2, which is a great piece of software!

ps.: Besides the title, no relation to catholicism (and no puns, either :P) intended!

Canola 2: one more release

So, as most of you Maemo users and developers must have seen, another release of Canola 2 is out in the extras-devel repository, which was called beta11. It’s been fun to work on it! It is, for sure, one of the greatest media players out there. Soon you’ll also have the pleasure of contributing to the project, the source code release is approaching (we all hope, hehe).

All in all it’s been very exciting to work here, at Profusion. The whole team is too cool and very skilled. So, I finish this quick post, while listening to Johnny Cash on Canola, promising new cool stuff is coming out from Profusion soon, stay tuned. :)
