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:
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:
* globalui module added for displaying notes and queries from
* Added functionality to mark SMS's in the inbox as read or unread.

* 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.

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:
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).
