Intel Releases MeeGo 1.2 With Netbook UX

Intel, now without the support of Nokia, has released their MeeGo 1.2 Linux-based operating system. The MeeGo 1.2 core release targets Intel Atom and ARMv7 architectures and is meant to serve as a baseline for device vendors and software developers to base their work upon.

The core MeeGo 1.2 operating system has kernels spun up for Intel Atom and ARMv7 hardware, includes a QML Application Framework and extended Qt Mobility APIs, and there's an enhanced telephony and connectivity stack with support for GSM/GPRS/HSPA+ along with USB/WiFi/BT-PAN tethering. The multimedia stack has also been enhanced in MeeGo 1.2.

For Intel Atom netbook users out there, MeeGo Netbook UX 1.2 has also been released as well as the In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) UX 1.2 spin, a tablet developer preview, and MeeGo SDK 1.2. Sadly it doesn't look like there's any longer a maintained MeeGo port for the Nokia N900, so I lose hope that the smart-phone bought last year for Phoronix testing will ever be of real use...

With MeeGo 1.2 out the door, MeeGo 1.3 now enters development and is planned for release in October of this year.

More details in the MeeGo.com release announcement. There's also a MeeGo Developers Conference taking place next week in San Francisco. Expect some major announcements possibly out of this conference next week... One of the PR representatives was pushing hard for me to attend. But the event is not taking place in the wonderful lands of Bavaria or Germany and so it's harder to justify the expenses, thus I will just stay tuned for announcements remotely.
