qtmoko-v30 images are out now. They can be downloaded from sourceforge page 

Qtmoko is debian+qtopia based distribution for Freerunner. For more info check 
[2] [3].

For most users it's probably not worth upgrading, the changelog is very short:

- fixed headset jack detection
- Danish translations (Ole Carlsen)
- GPRS fix (Timo Juhani Lindfors)
- battery_platform for dumb batteries as module
- force GPS power up on resume (Gennady Kupava)

The headset jack can now be detected by using input device for it (patch by 
larsc that creates this device is now included in kernel).

GPRS should be now more stable thanks to Timo's fix [4]. Please test and share 
results :)

Dumb batteries could work now. You should do:

	modprobe platform_battery


	echo ppp_generic >> /media/card/etc/modules

to make it work. First one is for temporary test, second for permanent (reboot 
needed). I havent tried, because i dont have dumb battery so again please test 
it yourself and share results.

GPS powerup fix is probably needed only for uboot users, so i havent tested it 

Last probably most important change is that qtmoko and SHR have now same 
source code. I have merged KMS patches from SHR and we have now same souce 
code (only kernel config is now different).

I have also changed a bit my kernel branches. I will have two branches for 
each release:

[1] http://sourceforge.net/projects/qtmoko/files/Experimental/
[2] http://www.qtmoko.org/
[3] http://activationrecord.net/radekp/qtmoko/
[4] http://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/2264
