Hi all,
we are now looking for beta (well, it is more "alpha") testers for  
the new Cocoa/GNUstep/X11 based GUI stack and SDK for the Neo.


a) you own a GTA01b4 (we need to install a special kernel version),
b) have a Mac with at least MacOS X 10.4,
c) have (some) experience in Xcode, Interface Builder and Cocoa,
d) are interested in trying this alternate system (meaning alternate  
to OpenMoko, Qtopia, Android, iPhone SDK) and giving feedback.

Our aim:

The software is not yet ready for real beta testing, since many  
mostly implemented features are not yet working (e.g. nil phone  
functionality) or still have (very) rough edges. It is more about the  
general concept and we are interested in your experiences, comments,  
hints and directions for further improvements to make it what the  
iPhone SDK probably will not be.

What is working:

* launching of applications (you can write or port your own code  
using C, Obj-C, Xcode and Interface Builder!)
* Bluetooth scanning
* some demo apps (Polygons, Sudoku, ...)
* Stop Watch
* RPN Calulator (like an HP15C)
* Chess (only the GUI - the interface to the GNUchess engine is missing)
* Morse decoder (by tapping on the screen...)
* Color and Font manager panels
* some more...

Next Steps:

If you are interested, please send me a mail and I will provide you  
instructions where to download and how to install.
