MAFW Test GUI now available

Today we have added our test GUI to the garage repository (component mafw-test-gui). This is by no means a product quality application, but it is a good sandbox for testing MAFW while we work on it. Maemo developers interested in writing multimedia applications based on MAFW can use this application as a reference. If you just want to give MAFW a try, this application is a good place to start as well.

If you missed the previous posts, you can find MAFW’s repository here.


UPDATE: Zeeshan just remembered me that I forgot to mention that this UI is based on gupnp-av-cp code 🙂

MAFW source code goes public

Quim has just announced that MAFW (Multimedia Application Framework) has moved to an open development model. This means that from now on we will work directly in garage and anyone interested can browse the source code and provide feedback (and even better, patches!). I’ve been looking forward to this moment for quite some time, so I am really excited that this has finally happened. Thanks to Nokia and Quim for making this possible!

If you are planning to write or port Maemo multimedia applications for Fremantle, I suggest that you to give MAFW a try and share your experience with us, we really need your input. In that case you probably want to start by reading the documentation here.

BTW, I intend to use my blog to keep the Maemo community updated on MAFW news, so stay tuned…

Welcome Maemo!

I thought it was time I had a category for Maemo related posts only, so here it is. I expect to post some interesting news and info in the days to come, so stay tuned if you are interested!
