Our Ubuntu packages for the Maliit framework and keyboard had not been updated for a while, so just before the holidays I uploaded 0.93.1 versions for Ubuntu Quantal to the Maliit PPA. I fixed various lintian warnings along the way.
We’d really like some help getting this into official Debian and Ubuntu.

Do you know if Maliit will be the default virtual keyboard in the newly annonced Ubuntu Phone OS ?
Doesn’t the sentence “Weâ€™d really like some help getting this into official Ubuntu” answer your question already?
No this sentence doesn’t answer clearly my question. They didn’t give much detail about Ubuntu Phone OS. As for Ubuntu TV, I think this is a different OS from the regular Ubuntu-desktop OS, even if they share a lot of things. And at least it is still in heavy development. Maliit not being in the official Ubuntu 12.10 for desktops doesn’t mean it is not planned for the phone variant. That’s why I was asking the question. I’ll take your answer as a “no” then.
I found a picture of the keyboard on Ubuntu Phone there : http://www.pocket-lint.com/news-gallery/48955/ubuntu-phone-pictures-hands-on-review/17
In the article from which the picture is taken, they say : “There are currently no interesting keyboard input methods at present, but the likes of Swiftkey and Swype-types are expected to arrive.”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but it could be a Maliit front-end.
