    Talking Python for S60 1.4.3 released

    Python for S60 1.4.3 is now released. This is an officially signed release.

    You can download the release from the usual place in SourceForge:

    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...roup_id=154155

    This release runs on S60 2nd edition (and all FPs) and 3rd edition.

    The release includes:
    - source code
    - device and emulator binaries for 2.0, 2.6, 2.8 and 3.0
    - emulator binaries for armv5 (RVCT)
    - documentation PDF.

    The release is officially Nokia signed. The capabilities for the PythonForS60 component are "ALL -TCB -DRM -AllFiles", so the DLLs are usable with almost all applications as is and thus there is no longer a need for a separate unsigned-freedevcert version of this package.

    The script shell package is signed with the user-grantable capability set (ReadUserData WriteUserData NetworkServices LocalServices UserEnvironment). If you need more capabilities, you need to obtain a devcert and sign the unsigned_testrange script shell package with it. The UID for unsigned_testrange script shell package is updated with untrusted range (0xE0000000...0xEFFFFFFF)

    Changes in 1.4.3 from 1.4.2:
    -----------------------------
    * Added functionality to set the recipient name in messaging.sms_send().
    * Added to the positioning module the last_position() function which fetches the last obtained position without powering up the GPS device.
    * Increased the maximum length of the message that can be sent using messaging.sms_send()to 39015 characters.

    Corrected defects:

    1891830: positioning.stop_position()does not shutdown GPS
    1833627: sms content is truncated to the first 256 characters

    Note: The UIDs for officially signed 3rd edition packages (1.4.x) are different from the prereleases (1.3.x). The 1.4.x releases have UIDs assigned from the protected range, while the 1.3.x releases had UIDs from the unprotected range. If your software depends on the UIDs it may need changes. Especially note that it may not be possible to directly upgrade an application package that embeds a 1.3.x runtime package into a new version that embeds a 1.4.x runtime package without removing the old runtime package first.

    The UID changes relevant to application programmers are as follows:

    - PythonForS60 package: old 0xF0201510 new 0x2000B1A0
    - PythonScriptShell package: old 0xF0201515 new 0x2000B1A5

    All users are recommended to upgrade.

    This release is the same as 1.3.11 in that ***you need to install both the PythonforS60 _and_ the PythonScriptShell package to get the same functionality as before on 2nd edition. ***

    Bug reports, patches and feature requests are welcomed in the usual places:

    Bugs: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?grou...55&atid=790646
    Patches: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?grou...55&atid=790648
    Feature requests:http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?grou...55&atid=790649

    Yes, really - if you find a clear bug file it in SourceForge. That's what we track regularly, not every thread in the discussion board. If you post a bug report only in the DiBo, we might miss it.

    When filing bugs, include the device you used, its firmware version (you can see this by entering *#0000# in the idle screen), the PyS60 version and a minimal test case (if applicable).

    Happy hacking!

    Hello ,

    I'm wondering why you have announced this release after one week ! There were more than 5000 downloading since your release on 28th April 2008 !

    Hi Cyke64,
    I remember there was some problem with the UID of the unsigned Script Shell. So maybe they only announced it now because they only got it fixed now. At least that's what I think.

    It looks, that to read internal GPS module we still need to use (and sign) PythonScriptShell_1_4_3_3rdEd_unsigned_testrange.sis.

    If so, I wonder why?

    It's a matter of capabilities (need Location ). But you can use extern GPS module with your N95 with PyScriptShell selfsigned
    This restriction doesn't exist anymore for 3rd FP2

    Is it in theory possible that Nokia could sign the next version of PythonForS60 with Location capabilities?

    Hi,

    All you did was install the Python interpreter, in order to see the icon you need to install the script shell too.
    Download PythonScriptShell_1_4_3_2ndEdFP2.SIS and install it.
