There's some movement on the KDE/Maemo front. Lately we've seen more public announcements coming mainly thanks to the office viewer. But there's also work under the hood cooking up. Most notably communication channels to provide feedback for the Qt 4.6/Maemo variant are open, hopefully we'll soon see a few patches flying in. And also Jos posted some (large) patches to streamline kdelibs which are on the table for discussion and hopefully going toward a KDE wide solution.

Today though, I just wanted to let everybody know that I've been working on a virtual machine to help KDE developers easily get a Maemo SDK. I added some documentation so now we have a Qt/Maemo SDK VM page on techbase (download URL and installation procedure are there).

It should be relatively easy for anyone to have it working: download, boot, login, run a script, done you can know use Qt 4.6 in a fully setup Maemo SDK. Hopefully that will lower the bar to contributing for quite some people.

That's it for now, don't hesitate to drop me a mail if you have issues with it.
