Maemo 1.3 on the horizon?

While I’m currently in the middle of an all-nighter study/HW/project session, (it’s 2 AM where I’m at right now), some interesting news just filtered into our tips section (Thanks Jim).

Over at the MeeGo blog, Harri Hakulinen let out that a Maemo 5 PR 1.3 release was incoming!! Jay will be pleased.

Also mentioned was the great work and headway they were making with regards towards better support for MeeGo 1.1 on the N900. As it stands now, the 3G voice and telephony stacks are all up and running, albeit not perfectly and should better allow developers, hackers and the curious among us to more confidently dual-boot Maemo and MeeGo.

MeeGo 1.1 is also entering a rather final stage of hardening before a release/announcement, likely to happen at the MeeGo conference in a few weeks’ time. That said it was also let slip that work on MeeGo 1.2 has begun with recent contributions by Nokia towards  this version. It’s been said time and again that Nokia’s version of MeeGo is likely ahead of where the MeeGo community at large was and this only serves to prove this. Three of the key contributions by Nokia, SGX drivers, camera stack, and accelerated video decoders. Three very important aspects in today’s smartphone.

The SGX drivers are interesting and hint towards either an OMAP 3 or 4 powered MeeGo device from Nokia that could be well into the bug-smashing phase.

Here’s to hoping!!

    Just when I thought I could concentrate all my time on getting to know N8, N900 has a way of pulling me back. I hope PR 1.3 takes at least a week or two to come out :p If like pr 1.2, we may wait months :p

      They’re not made by Nokia but you can bet they have to be adapted to work the way they want them to with the hardware they’re utilising…
