The developers behind the MeeGo operating system, the Linux-based distribution that married Moblin and Maemo
, have just released version 1.1. MeeGo 1.1 is available for Intel Atom and ARMv7 architectures and comes in the netbook, IVI (in-vehicle information/entertainment systems), and handset editions. Besides the core MeeGo OS hitting 1.1, the MeeGo SDK 1.1 has reached beta and will be released before the MeeGo Summit next month in Dublin.
The MeeGo 1.1 software stack is comprised of the Linux 2.6.35 kernel, X.Org Server 1.9.0, Qt 4.7, and Qt Mobility 1.0.2, among other updated packages since the MeeGo 1.0 release earlier this year.
MeeGo 1.2 is slated for release in April of 2011 and will include a Handset UX release with a complete application stack and support for other device usage models. This next release should be quite feature-filled, but there's no word yet if Wayland will be used in MeeGo 1.2
