> Let me explain Openmoko's software strategy for the next 6 months:
> ---1 current stable image
> Our current stable image is called 'Om2008.9', available at http://downloads.openmoko.org/releases/Om2008.9/
> We are sometimes cherry-picking fixes into it, but admittedly not as
> many as we would like. If someone wants to step up to become stable

> Alternatively, a number of other images are available, Debian, Qt
> Extended, Android, FDOM, SHR, etc.
> See http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Distributions for a more
> comprehensive list.
> ---2 Mickey's framework milestones
> As many people know, the next big thing for Openmoko will be Mickey's
> FSO framework around d-bus and Python, and the Paroli telephony UI.
> See http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/OpenmokoFramework
> A few weeks ago, Mickey released milestone 4, available at http://downloads.freesmartphone.org/fso-stable/milestone4.1/
> In late January, he plans to come out with milestone 5, in late March
> with milestone 6.
> See here for a more detailed roadmap: http://trac.freesmartphone.org/roadmap
> ---3 next major release, Om2009
> After the next 2 FSO milestones, Openmoko will fork off a stable

> to our next major release, Om2009.
> The telephony UI will be Paroli, see http://code.google.com/p/paroli/
> The way things are going right now, we will probably have this release
> mid-next year.
