Maemo Chinook/Sardine C++ bindings

I’ve updated the C++ gtkmm bindings for Maemo for the unstable Chinook/Sardine release, which will one day become the new stable Maemo release. That’s hildonmm (previously hildon-libsmm) and hildon-fmmm.

Some links:

If you are running Maemo Sardine then you can add the extras repository by adding these lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb sardine free

deb-src sardine free

and then install them like so:

fakeroot apt-get install libhildonmm-dev libhildon-fmmm-dev

Packages are only available for the x86 target for now, but I’ll create ARM packages fairly soon.

Feedback is welcome. Add a comment here, please, because there doesn’t seem to be any bug-tracker for Maemo extras projects.

  1. I didn’t understand a word of what you said… but I guess this means Nokia N800 owners (like me!) will soon get an OS update with newer Gnome APIs and that it should hopefully make porting apps easier since the OS won’t have outdated libs? is that it?.

    BTW: I know it’s going to be a pain, but it wouldn’t hurt if you included descriptions after the first mention of the “code names”. Otherwise plain end users like me not familiar with all the codenames can’t understand fully what you’re saying without looking up those codeanames. :)
