So, 2009 is coming to its end. Milestone for the whole Maemo ecosystem. I clearly remember that glorious day when Urho Konttori came to #maemo channel and said “Here we go!”. It was the release of maemo.nokia.com website. And the first thing I’ve said was “You know guys, I’m proud that I was here before today”. And I’m still very proud of it. For me, 2009 was a great year, I’ve, as always, helped various unique projects, such as Mnemosyne, BlueMaemo, Ati85 and even Mer. You can even see some of my UI ideas for Fremantle live now.
But life’s going on and the world is waiting for brand new 2010! I’m sure it will blow up our minds even more than 2009 and I want to tell you what you can expect in 2010 from me. So lets start our Annual Countdown with number 10 – Transmission!
So, thanks to qwerty12 now you can download torrents right to your n900 with Transmission. But current user interface is missing Maemo 5 HIG a bit (though work with app menu is really impressive) and it can’t be used for portrait mode (and we want portrait, right?) We’ve decided to remake UI so it would be great for all use cases. Please welcome, revamped Transmission :)
Now all info bout downloads is right on the main screen. Row dividers now also have the functionality of progress bars. Tap the row to see details. And, what’s more important – it looks perfect in portrait mode :)
Well, lets save some juice for release, that’s all for now. See you tomorrow – I have lots of things to show you.
Thanks for reading.
