MeeGo Linux 1.1 is now available
Alright, so yet another iteration of the MeeGo OS is out finally. The MeeGo 1.1 OS is up as a standalone download and its architecture is also available for use in other available Linux distros in the market. MeeGo is known for its custom user interface and is designed to performance optimally on Intel Atom and ARM v7 processors.
The latest build comes with a host of features – like Core OS 1.1 as a consolidated common base operating system for all UXs, Netbook UX 1.1 to cover complete set of core applications for netbooks and Handset UX 1.1 for popular Smartphone features. That’s not all – the 1.1 also has speech recognition capabilities as part of its In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) UX 1.1. The SDK build will be available to developers before the MeeGo Summit conference in Dublin though.
MeeGo is the outcome of the Moblin and Maemo Linux projects combined. Although Moblin was specifically aimed at netbooks and Maemo at smartphones, the MeeGo OS does the job for both these devices equally well. Although there are many different variant of the OS meant for different device platforms, the one for netbooks comes with a specific set of applications and a user interface meant to suit the screen size and display resolution of netbooks. As for developers willing to create apps for the MeeGo OS, the MeeGo SDK 1.1 Beta will be available soon.
