Symbian Foundation to Shut Down Websites
The Symbian Foundation announces website closures starting mid-December 2010.
Recently the Symbian Foundation announced Nokia's commitment to making the Symbian platform available under an alternative direct and open model. As a result of the Symbian Foundation licensing transition, there will be a reduction in daily operations and staff numbers.
The licensing transition will also affect Symbian's websites. All of the websites hosted by Symbian will be shutting down on December 17, 2010, including symbian.org, symbian.org/cn, symbian.org/jp, developer.symbian.org, developer.symbian.org/cn, developer.symbian.org/jp, kernel.symbian.org, horizon.symbian.org, ideas.symbian.org, blog.symbian.org, blogcn.symbian.org, and blogjp.symbian.org. The Symbian Twitter feed and Facebook page will most likely be discontinued as well.
After the developer.symbian.org site shuts down, the Symbian source repositories will no longer be available. The Symbian platform is available online until December 17, and Symbian encourages users to download the platform before the website closures.
More information on the Symbian licensing transition can be found on the Symbian wiki page.
