maemo mailing lists forum

Some people don’t like to subscribe mailing list, they are so used to internet forums that can’t use a mailing list properly.
Recently in ITT, some people that don’t use the maemo community mailing lists, complained about the lack of information about the maemo community council, because the decisions/achievements of the council are mostly announced in the community mailing lists, in order to help those users, I took the liberty to create a forum archive for the maemo mailing lists at Nabble.

What is Nabble:

“Nabble wants to improve public discussions on the web and provide useful embeddable applications to end users. This includes forums, user groups, message boards, mailing lists, photo galleries, newspapers, blogs, etc. There are many vibrant discussions in these places, so are problems such as cluttered UI, broken search, moderation, and cataloging. Nabble wants to be a place where your discussion can grow and be free of these problems.”

The Nabble forum allow users to browse the maemo community mailing lists like in regular internet forum, and is also possible to reply trough the forum.

You can found the “maemo mailing lists forum” here.

The Maemo community is looking for talented students to join us in the Google Summer of Code initiative.

We already have a good pool of ideas, but we are also looking for students ideas in the mobile/embedded field, especially in the following areas:

* Location based apps;
* Context aware apps;
* Linux kernel advances, related to mobile/embedded;
* Social apps clients;
* Mobile/embedded apps in general that can benefit a wide range of platforms (maemo, openmoko, beagleboard, etc…).

Video: Maemo 5 Alpha

A lot of people in the Maemo community asked for a Maemo 5 video showing the new Maemo UI, so here is one :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiNF4C1p030

The application manager doesn’t work for me, and the Fremantle extras-devel repository doesn’t list the available packages trough the web, so I only showed in the video the apps that I know that are already in the repository.

The deadline for submit organization applications for Google Summer of Code is approaching, so is time to move on. We already have a good number of possible mentors, but will be awesome if a few more appear, it will increase the chances of the Maemo community be chosen as a mentoring organization and also can increase the number of projects assigned to the Maemo community. So if you like Maemo and GSoC, go read this page and send some feedback for us in the next couple of days.

We also want more possible project ideas, some criticism to the current ideas will be welcomed too :)

QTablet

I found this project yesterday on IRC and I think it deserves some publicity :) .

QTablet is a fully Qt and QGraphicsView based application framework which main target is internet tablets such as N810. It provides QLauncer for launching applications, Home screen called the Wall and Pager for changing between two virtual desktops and placeholders for minimized application. QTablet uses also Qt Animation Framework for doing transitions between Wall, QLauncher and Pager.

Check out the video, it features virtual desktops, cool animations (without openGL :)) and is also possible to launch hildon apps inside the QT framework. At the moment the installation isn’t straightforward, but deserves a try at lest :) .

Fennec Alpha 2 released

Mozilla just announced the release of Fennec alpha 2 for the N810, you can found the release notes and how to install this browser in your tablet here.

After a few tests it seems a little bit faster that the first Fennec release,  but it still a little bit far from the MicroB performance in my opinion.
