    Lightbulb Minor release(1.0.1) of Python for Series 60 !

    Hello,

    Do you know that Nokia has released a new version of Python for Series 60 (1.0.1) ?
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/main/0,,034-821,00.html

    It's a good thing but it's a very light change :-(
    I try to view changes and i only discover that in System\Apps\appmgr\default.py has changed ! (I use winmerge 2.2 from Sourceforge and UnMakeSIS)
    http://www.postneo.com/2005/04/01/mi...s-60-20-update

    But we hope they make other changes as Eric has showed us in PYCON 2005 ?
    "From there he(Jukka Laurila ) demonstrated some of the hardware interfaces that are (or will soon be) available. For example, in just a few lines in the console he was able to import the camera module, take a picture, saving the file, and then passing it to Content_handler to show the photo.

    It also has a telephone. Jukka then typed import telephone and after another short line tried to dial a random phone number. He couldn’t actually dial because there was no signal in the Marvin center. For the final demo, Jukka showed the classic Snake game written in 99 lines of Python that utilize the as-yet unreleased 2d graphics package." extracts from http://www.postneo.com/2005/03/27/py...-for-series-60

    yeah I just wanted to ask if there would ever be any new version ... there are many wishlists everywhere, but the newest version is about half an year old ?! (except this minor release, there's nothing important).
    so,will nokia continue with development and port the whole API (or the major) to Python?

    Yes, development continues and yes, there will be a release in the future with significant new features. The release date and the list of new features are not public yet.

    Yeah, the 1.0.1 update didn't really add new functionality... the stuff we had at PyCon is for the next release, which, BTW, should be available in a preview/Alpha form very, very soon.
