Mamona 0.2-Beta released!


It’s been a long time since we released 0.1 (at that time I wasn’t even working at INdT),
so is with pleasure that I’m announcing the official Mamona 0.2-Beta release.

A lot changed since 0.1, we had a couple of goals for 0.2 release, mainly to support
Nokia N770 and to add some highly missing features, like network and virtual keyboard.

Main features already available for the beta release:

  • Glibc – 2.5
  • GCC – 4.1.2
  • Full Python 2.5 support
  • Enlightenment Window Manager
  • USB Networking
  • Bluetooth support
  • Noemu Packages
  • Mamona SDK
  • QEMU (user mode emulation) 0.9.0 for Mamona SDK
  • ARM EABI Version 5 (N770) and 6 (N8X0 and Omap)
  • Machines Supported:
    • Nokia 770
    • Nokia 800
    • Nokia 810
    • Omap 3430
  • Web browsers: Firefox 3 and Midori (recommended)
  • Virtual Keyboard
  • Xephyr support on SDK
  • SystemTap enabled kernels for N800 and N810

Work to be done for the final 0.2 release:

  • Network Manager working with dbus API (Open, WEP and WPA)
  • Fix Track (documentation)
  • Mamona Device Manager
  • New and lighter theme for Enlightenment
  • MIC
  • Full Emulation
  • Tests and bug fixing

The installation instruction is basically the same from 0.1, but we’ll create a whole
new procedure before releasing the final 0.2. The main goal of this beta release is to
officially release the SDK for 0.2. For those who want to play with SDK, just follow
