First of all, as SHR hasn't been released yet, could you please mail
your comments to the shr-devel mailing list?
I don't want to confuse users, here, SHR isn't released yet, it's
early work, it has to be perfected.

This is due to the length of some frameworkd loading, and to the inner
timeouts in ophonekitd. Unfortunately, it'll be hard to do better as
of now.

This sometimes happen, this is a known bug, and will be addressed.

Felt that too. There's already a ticket open for the '"sluggish" feeling.

This is on our TODO list.

Again, this sometimes happen. We're addressing the issue.

Yes it does :-) It's supposed to put the speaker mode, it works well here...

Date/time : no gui yet.
Battery : We're using a more recent version of illume than FSO M4 if I
recall correctly. I'll check that.
Regarding the provider, there was bug in illume GSM gadget in
correlation with frameworkd MS4 at the time we built the image. That's
why we disabled the gadget.

We'll look into this issue (echo) with the FSO team!
