GPS and Address-book now supported

We have just released Python-GPSbt and Python-abook, providing access to GPS and address book data. Both modules are available through Application Manager as separate packages. We will collect all user opinions about them and possibly these packages will be included as part of a new PyMaemo release.

GeoClue bindings will be provided as soon as it gets a bit more mature. In fact its possible to access its API using D-Bus calls.

Finally, thanks to Eduardo Rocha for suggestions on how to improve py-gpsbt.

PyMaemo project page revisited

After a long time without any layout modifications I've spent some time renewing PyMaemo webpage. Now it has more menu entries, a (small by now) FAQ, examples, screenshots of Python based apps, etc. A roadmap will be added soon. I hope you enjoy it.

Other news: I'm planning to launch a new PyMaemo revision this week, before my vacation period. This week I will try to upload PyMaemo packages to run with SDK 4.0 (Chinook) too.
