Aegis "open mode" discussion for Harmattan moves to Talk
Editor: Ryan Abel
Just a heads-up that discussion about Aegis and "open mode" has moved to talk.maemo.org: Starting this thread upon recommendation of javispedro... The original at FMC has become somewhat outdated, given where everything's at now. Those of you looking to track the discussion should update your bookmarks and change your subscriptions.
PR1.2 beta release for N950 coming soon
With many of the goodies awaiting users in Harmattan's PR1.2 being teased, or leaked, it's good to see that developers will get the chance to sanity check their apps on the new version: We will be shortly releasing a developer edition of MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan 1.2 beta (feel free to crack a joke v 1.2 here) to developers with Nokia N950 Developer Device. The goal of this early access release is to enable developers to verify that their applications do not exhibit any regressions in the new platform version.
SDL and PyGame available for MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan
The N9 Developer blog has announced that thanks to initial porting efforts of Javier [S.] Pedro, Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL) is now available for the Nokia N9. The packages can be installed from the Platform SDK and Nokia Apps repositories. As is the case with other packages in the Nokia Apps repository, applications submitted to Ovi Store are allowed to depend on them. Therefore, you can submit your SDL games to the Ovi Store!
