Lots of activity in the phoneME Advanced project

newsflash-757208.jpg It's amazing how community activity tends to develop its own dynamics. Over the last few weeks there has been a surge of things happening in the phoneME Advanced project - on several fronts. I thought I'd share some of this in case you missed it:

  • Porting to Garnet OS / Palm OS 5.x

Several folks are really getting into the details now, discussing the possibilities and the pros and cons of porting strategies. This thread has had over 3300 views in less than four weeks.

  • Porting to N800

Getting Java ME to the N800 has been a long-standing topic for the community. Lately, there has been new activity in moving this along. Check out this thread.

  • Identifying and squashing bugs

Several community members have nailed bugs and even provide fixes for them. Two examples: In this thread community member Mike found a problem in the Qt-related image handling and provided a fix as well. And in this thread community member Jason found a regression that was promptly fixed by the phoneME Advanced team.

  • Adding Bluetooth functionality

Bluecove is popular open source project that brings Bluetooth functionality to a number of platforms. So community members want to make it work on phoneME Advanced as well. One of our community stars, Davy Preuveneers, has spent some time investigating what it would take. See this thread for more info.

An active and vibrant community is what it is all about. Thanks, folks!
