Meego™ and Mx 1.0

Meego™ 1.0 for Netbooks is now available, with a revamped user experience based on Clutter/Mx. The Mx toolkit now sports a number of widgets and classes, as I mentioned in my previous post. The API reference documentation is now also available online, or can be built from the source code using the –enable-gtk-doc configuration option. Source code is available from git or source tarballs.

    great work!

    I have ported a part of the widget factory example to Vala:

    However, on my Mx installation (from git) the icon for the close button seems to be missing (see screenshot), and I get these warnings:

    Mx-WARNING **: Error loading theme
    Mx-WARNING **: Failed to lookup icon ‘window-close’

    How hard would it be for MeeGo to provide a non-Intel-Atom-Only Kernel?

    I thought Meego was Qt-based ? At least that’s how it sounds when Nokia talks about it.

  4. Jens Knutson says:

    Are there Python bindings for Mx yet? Or does Mx at least play nicely with gobject introspection?

    Either way, very interesting stuff… I was rather disheartened to see the Qt-centric roadmap for Meego, but it looks to me like all the good stuff, all the actual main apps and the shell, are Gtk/Mx/Clutter!

    Xav, I have a feeling that the aging Qt will take over Meego in the later versions.
