MeeGo Launches its Handset User Experience Project

Jun 30, 2010

The project makes its June deadline, just barely.

 

The MeeGo Project released the baseline source code for the handset version of the Linux-based mobile OS to the development community. This code is being developed as MeeGo 1.1, which is slated for an October release.

 

The MeeGo team also released the MeeGo UI design principles and interaction guidelines.

 

"This milestone marks the completeion of the merger of Moblin and Maemo as major architecture decisions and technical selections have been determined," said Valtteri Halla, MeeGo director.

 

The MeeGo Project Handset Day 1 includes APIs incorporating Qt and MeeGo Touch UI Framework, a subset of reference UI and applications, the core OS and middleware components, and hardware adaptation support for Atom and ARM-based handsets.

 

The developer preview is available for download at MeeGo.com/downloads. For the source code, check out MeeGo.gitorious.com. Full details and release notes are available here.
