MeeGo OS 1.2 now available

Teaser
The latest version of the mobile-specific OS is now ready for download
Allen Ngo,

MeeGo OS, the Linux-based mobile operating system introduced at MWC 2010 by Intel and Nokia has launched its latest stable release for download.

The MeeGo operating system has now reached version 1.2, and along with it many behind the scene changes.   Improved support for Atom-based and ARMv7 machines are some of the more major changes, as well as multiple bug fixes, GSM and HSPA+ network support, and USB/WiFi/BlueTooth tethering capabilities.

Version 1.2 also introduces a preview of the MeeGo tablet interface. It is a work-in-progress, however, and is mainly aimed at developers and supporters for bug fixing and feedback.

A full list of the changes can be seen at the official MeeGo website. Those wanting to install the OS on their netbooks can follow the download link here. The next MeeGo release, 1.3, is reportedly scheduled for a release later this year in October.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
