Maemo 5 Alpha SDK (also known as Fremantle Alpha SDK) was released in maemo.org on monday. We are happy to announce that the Maemo 5 Alpha rootstraps are now also available for Maemo SDK+ development environment.
Those developers who are already using SDK+ to compile their source code can now start porting their code also to Fremantle without moving back to Scratchbox-1.
If you have installed SDK+ already to your machine you should run the command “$ maemo-sdk reload catalogue” to get the Maemo 5 Alpha rootstraps visible to your SDK+ rootstrap menu. To install Maemo 5 Alpha rootstraps just say “$ maemo-sdk install rootstrap” and a menu is provided to you where you can selected the rootstrap you want to start using. Maemo 5 Alpha rootstraps that are made availabe are: “fremantle5.0alpha_armel” and “fremantle5.0alpha_i386″.
Maemo SDK+ project provides alternative cross-compiling environment for Maemo developers. SDK+ is based on Scratchbox-2 instead of Scratchbox-1. To learn more about the SDK+ itself, how to use it and how to do software development in this environment please follow the link below.
