maemo Chinook approaches
Today we have released the maemo 4.0 beta Chinook SDK, and it feels good.
Chinook will be a major release with several enhancements, new features and an API break to get a better alignment with the contemporary GNU/Linux desktop (details). This beta still misses some components but it is good enough to port applications from maemo Bora.
We have chosen to release this beta SDK as soon as it has been technically possible in order to give more time to developers. We still can’t compromise to a final release date, but you will know it with a decent margin of time.
maemo developers will find a modular installer bringing some flexibility to your development environment. Try it out and tell us what you think, we have still time to improve it for the final release. This is a first step towards a next generation SDK to be developed during the Diablo and Elephanta release cycles, but this is another story.
I hope you enjoy Chinook’s fresh air!
