Bergie beat me to the post ­čÖé

A big thank you to everyone involved in the push! Especially X-Fade and Bergie.

I was happy when I read my mails this morning, X-Fade telling that the upgrade went well. And I was really smiling when I logged onto the site.

The site is just faster. The new Midgard version feels good and support just got better. And still some small tweaks on the way, great!

Now I think the main pages are technically ready for the community to keep growing ­čÖé

Excellent job, thank you!

maemo SDK+ Beta-2.5 released

November 18, 2008 at 14:26 | Posted in tools | 8 Comments

We are happy to report that the maemo SDK+ Beta-2.5 is released. Click yourself to to learn more how to develop maemo applications without Scratchbox-1.

Maemo SDK+ is an alternative (and currently unofficial) way to develop software for Nokia Internet Tablets.

This release has lots of bug fixes and much better support for X86 architecture than the previous release. We also introduced┬á new command line tool called “maemo-sdk” that acts as a wrapper to the multitude of services the SDK+ offers. We now recommend using this new maemo-sdk command line tool for all SDK+ related maintenance work (like installing rootstraps, tools, compilers, starting the Hildon UI etc) instead of using the separate maemo scripts and tools. This tools frees the developer from doing many mundane daily tasks manually. It also takes care of the many configuration and initialization steps that previously you had to do manually.

After releasing the previous beta we were contacted by many  people who requested wider distro support than just Ubuntu Hardy so this release is available for the following distros:

– Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex 8.10

– Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04

– Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon 7.10

– Debian Lenny

– Debian Etch / i386.

The new versions of core packages are: maemo-sdk core package, Scratchbox2 version, Q-Emu 0.9.1-4 (SB2 version with patches), Libtool 1.5.26, sbrsh 7.6, and Anjuta IDE plugin 0.4.2.

For those who are currently using beta-2 we recommend to upgrade to beta-2.5 version.

Happy Hacking !

-the maemo SDK+ team
