This blog of mine has been drowning in comment spam recently. It is taking me too much time to delete the spam comments so I’ve decided to include this randomly generated image thing that you need to figure out before you’re able to post a comment. I’m sorry for the extra trouble but I think this might be a good way to reduce the spamming. Lets see if it works.

As we all probably know by now the Beta version of Maemo 2.0 and OS2006 has been released. Too bad that I forgot my Nokia 770 at work and I cannot test the new software yet. Of all the weekends, why It had to be now.
Anyway, I’ve been browsing through the Maemo.org site and I noticed that there was very nice Python tutorial there that includes lots of useful information. It seems that now it is really possible to develop fully working applications for Maemo platform using Python, since LibOSSO and D-BUS services are included. The tutorial has also very good instructions on how to make application installer packages from your Python applications.
The tutorial mentions that the Nokia 770 software images won’t include the Python runtime by default, but it has to be installed separately. This is quite understandable considering the amount of memory that is available on Nokia 770 for installable software. Also according to the tutorial the Pymaemo runtime package should be downloadable via maemo.org, but I haven’t found it yet. Anyway, the future looks promising.
Please also note that my previous tutorials do not apply anymore on Maemo 2.0 since hildon.App and hildon.AppView have changed to hildon.Program and hildon.Window.
I though that I set up a collection of the pymaemo tutorials I’ve written so that they would be more easily accessible. From now on you can find them at pymaemo.teemuharju.net. Of course, I still put them on my blog also. I haven’t written much new tutorials lately, but I think that during the weekend I could write about things like how to create a Hildonized toolbar etc.
