MeeGo 1.1 Released To Developers

Linux-based mobile OS allows software creation on Intel Atom and ARMv7 architectures.

The project release of MeeGo 1.1, designed to deliver a solid baseline for device vendors and developers to start creating software on Intel Atom and ARMv7 architectures, is now available.

The latest iteration of the Linux-based open-source mobile operating system, supported by Intel and Nokia, features the MeeGo 1.1 Core release, including the MeeGo kernel, device drivers, middleware subsystems, and common API components, which are necessary to develop future MeeGo-compliant solutions.

MeeGo 1.1 also includes Netbook UX 1.1, a complete set of core applications for netbooks. To date, developers have tested these core apps on Intel Atom-based netbooks; HP mini; Asus Eee PC 1005PE; MSI AE1900-B; and Acer Aspire One 5740-6025, according to MeeGo.

In addition, the mobile OS incorporates In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) UX 1.1, which includes a sample IVI home screen and taskbar, built with Qt 4.7 and speech recognition. The Handset UX 1.1. technology snapshot uses basic development UX for voice-calling, SMS messaging, web browsing, music and video playback, photo viewing, and connection management, according to MeeGo developers.

"The MeeGo stack contains Linux Kernel 2.6.35, X.org server 1.9.0, Web Runtime, Qt 4.7, and Qt Mobility 1.0.2, supporting the contacts, location, messaging, multimedia, and sensor and service frameworks," Imad Sousou and Valtteri Halla, members of the MeeGo Technical Steering Group, wrote in a blog. "It also includes a number of leading-edge components, such as the oFono telephony stack, the ConnMan connection manager, the Tracker data indexer, the Telepathy real-time communications framework, the Buteo sync framework, and many more."

The SDK 1.1 Beta for MeeGo Core OS and supported UXs will be released shortly before the planned MeeGo Summit , to be held in Dublin on Nov. 15-17.

" MeeGo development continues forward on a six-month cadence. MeeGo 1.2 is scheduled for April of 2011, and it will include a Handset UX release with a complete set of applications and support for other device usage models," said Sousou and Halla. "Hundreds of features targeting MeeGo 1.2 have already been filed in MeeGo Featurezilla, which we are using as a tool to track feature development. The development tree of the new MeeGo version is open, and we are starting to integrate the new components right now. The MeeGo 1.2 roadmap summarizing this information will be published soon."
