I'm attending Nokia World in London. You can see some pictures (including a few of my system, written in Python) in my Nokia World 2010 Flicker set.
A few moments ago I heard, from a Nokia person at the hands-on lab, something that didn't quite surprise me: "PyS60 is pratically dead - they should make it official". Somehow, I agree...
Please don't get me wrong, I like Python and PyS60 has many interesting aspects, but it's clear it doesn't attract many developers, and it is in a sorry state - with many open bugs that will probably never be fixed.
After trying to develop a real app with it, I found so many problems and limitations that I believe it would have been better to take another path (Qt, perhaps), which could be longer but would eventually get me where I need to go, instead of forcing me to look for exits and shortcuts that just doesn't exist.
For really quick, short and sweet apps, I think PyS60 is still worth a try, but I believe that for its own sake, its limitations should be clearly stated (in the docs) to allow developers to make a better decision about using it or not.
Since I already invested a considerable time in PyS60 with my app, I'll probably try to finish it with auxiliary external modules or external C++ apps to circumvent the problem's I've found, but I don't think I'll ever use PyS60 for my next apps.
Thanks for reading, and happy programming!
