The Freesmartphone.org team is proud to release milestone 5.5 codenamed
At first, we apologize for having passed the deadline for some months, but as
you might now there have been some substantial changes in our work situation
which took some time adjusting to. We're back on track now -- expect an
important announcement soon.
For this milestone, there have been improvements all over the place and we've
tied up some loose ends. It should provide a stable base for the changes
coming in milestone 6:
- switch some subsystems to the FSO 2.0 implementation in Vala,
- support for more devices,
- new mux daemon (fso-abyss),
- network management.
This will be the last release of FSO specific images. In the future we
will focus on the framework itself and cooperate with SHR for the
distribution and images. Note that expect the celldb interface, Zhone did not
receive any updates, so milestone 5.5 will look almost the same as milestone
