(Note: This post is about Plasma Active, a community collaboration to bring KDE software to consumer devices. To learn more about Plasma Active, read this blog post.)
We've been a bit quiet lately around the Plasma Active farm. This is mostly due to us being rather busy, both with technical as well as organizational tasks. On the technology front, things continue to plow forward at a very brisk pace with Contour shaping up with every passing day and libplasma2 (a big part of the Plasma Quick track) zipping ahead nicely.
Organizationally, we're learning new lessons every day as to how to best coordinate efforts between companies currently involved and reaching out to ones that should be involved. Basyskom sent a bunch of people to the recent MeeGo conf, and the response was fantastic, including some bloggers writing about the demo that was on offer.
There's also been some learning-as-we-grow happening that has hampered outbound communication somewhat. For some of the people involved, this is their very first open source experience. For others, this is their first foray into the interesting world of devices. While it is terrific to expand our merry band of freedom makers, it also has meant some learning curves.
Amongst all that, code is getting written, the user experience design continues to mature and new operating system images are being spun. All is good in the land of technical progress. Marco is hanging out at my place for a couple days prior to the upcoming Platform 11 meeting (which starts Wednesday) and we're getting some work done at a nice pace. Today we're working on Share-Like-Connect and building integration points in Contour for it.
I am, however, behind on posting news about new Active Apps as well, which I'm going to remedy in a moment.
