sorry the last week was a bit busy. I attended the Guademy event in Valencia
and needed to prepare some slides.
- Started to extract the Qtopia prediction into an C interface. There is
ongoing work to reduce the dependencies. The interface is negioated with
raster, he is sadly unable to build the Qtopia tree for weird issues (dbus).
A fix is pending.
- Provide SMS, Contacts on DBus with an "ad-hoc" interface built on top of
the Qtopia code to support diversity. This needs testing by olv.
- Kill the wait dialog. It takes more time to position, fade in, show the
spinning clock than doing the operation. The waitdialog is a bit of abused
API. It is not only a replacement for a busy cursor, it can show some
progress text, it can be 'canceled' too. So with killing the waitdialog some
operations can not be cancelled anymore, I put a #warning in the code. The
issue is that these kind of progress classes should not have used this class
anyway... I feel like a janitor...
- Trying to figure out races in the phone library, no conclusion yet
- Some more dealing with Trolltech Qtopia support on the idioms I run across.
- Wrote some python foo to help locking down versions and svn sources. The
april software update can now be built without an internet connection when
the source is available on the disk.
- Lock down certain versions, switch to SRCREV
- EFL, illume, illume-theme, assassin, alsa-states updated to a new version
in my branch. illume features "major" UI changes, more functionality, it is
slowly getting finished and shaping up, nice work!
- make sure Qtopia can play wav files by installing more gstreamer packages
- started to look into poky to merge the SDK bits we want to have.
- The golden state files for gsmhandset, are golden. There is a bit of noise
on the "other" side but it is way better than the previous ones. Nice job
- Xglamo developed self healing capabilities?
So it is converging, getting better, some things are left to do (see status
7), oh and it is still april but not long.... but everyone knows what to do.
