    Talking Python for S60 1.4.4 released

    Python for S60 1.4.4 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 binaries for 2.0, 2.6, 2.8 and 3.0
    - emulator binaries for 2.0, 2.6, 2.8, 3.0 and 3.1
    - 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 1.4.4 from 1.4.3:
    -----------------------------------------
    Feature additions:

    * globalui module added for displaying notes and queries from
    background applications.
    * Added functionality to mark SMS's in the inbox as read or unread.
    * Added support for S60 SDK 3.1 with a separate SDK ZIP. Resolves bug 1760277.
    * Added the twipsize attribute to graphics objects as part of
    resolving bugs 1784027 and 1758727.
    * The S60 3.1 SDK ZIP package also supports the S60 3.2 SDK, with the following limitations:
    (a) Missing feature: The sensor module is not supported on 3.2.
    (b) Known defect: The statement "print ''" crashes the script shell.

    Corrected defects:

    1954740: PC Suite synchronized contact field types broken
    1948500: e32.start_service() crashes pys60 1.4.2
    1940086: unread(sms_id) returns 32
    1934309: calendar can't see appointments on last day of a month
    1929285: Audio.say won't say äö
    1862129: print in _internalsocketobject
    1784027: PyS60 1.4.0 text drawing fails on Image with tuple
    1769294: select_access_point() and access_points() bug
    1758727: custom font drawing dont work with Image
    1760277: error import socket because e32socket error

    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 everybody ,

    Great day

    I hope that other releases will be more interesting because I see many bug fixes and not new features except globalui module in PyS60 1.4.4.

    Hi,

    I wasn't expecting a release so soon

    There can be two options that we might need to choose from:

    1) Either we want new features - which would ask us to wait very long or
    2) We can have baby releases like this one (with 5 to 6 bug fixes and one or two new features added) at smaller intervals,

    I guess we all would choose the 2nd one as 1st choice would require us longer time to wait.

    Ok then when is the next release? 1.4.5 ?

    btw, how old is PyS60?

    When 2.5 year old baby can do wonders, what will be its status when it fully grows up.

    If you count years when PyS60 has become Open Source !

    But PyS60 first public version has been released at the end of year 2004 !
    So PyS60 is 3.5 years old

    Don't forget to look COMPLETE PyS60 history

    Good work,

    only you didn't change the Python start up message. It still reads "Version 1.4.3 final"

    It's "Version 1.4.4 final" on my phone. Are you sure you downloaded the right version?
