Welcome to the 14th community update, covering March 6th ~ May, 2009.
  
 +
As always, there was no shortage of news in the past weeks. Distributions including Om2009, Android and Qt Extended Improved all received their share of updates. The first Openmoko Programming Competition, hosted by Aapo Rantalainen and Risto H. Kurppa, was announced and the winner will now get a prize provided by the community, currently at 314€ and a leather case for Freerunner (39€)!  A week later, a second contest was announced by Rakshat Hooja, where the current  bounty stands at 125€. Discussions continued on the subjects of cool chess games, browsers on the Neo, and of course, keyboards (we love our keyboards), and much more.
  
 +
====='''Period Apr ~ May 2009'''=====
 +
The GTA03 project canceled "cuts staff, turns focus on ... Plan B". [http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/04/06/openmoko/ Article with details]. The focus will be on improving the FreeRunner GTA02.
  
 +
  What happens next?
 +
  "There were two paths:
 +
  A: Fulfill our promises on FreeRunner and launch GTA03
 +
  B: Fulfill our promises on FreeRunner and launch project B.
 +
  We will talk more about project B in the coming months, but these salient facts guided our decisions:
 +
  1. GTA03 was in constant flux as a design.
 +
  2. GTA03 schedule was consequently always slipping.
 +
  3. The resources required for GTA03 are 3X those required for Project B.
 +
  4. OM doesn’t have 3X resources" -[http://tamsblackberry.tamoggemon.com/2009/04/09/freerunner-not-completely-dead-yet/ FreeRunner: not completely dead, yet].
  
====='''Period 20, Feb~5, Mar, 2009'''=====

This may strongly imply that we should expect the fully-functional [http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Om2009 Om2009] for the GTA02 in June/July.

Welcome to the 14th community update, covering March 6th ~ May, 2009.

As always, there was no shortage of news in the past weeks. Distributions including Om2009, Android and Qt Extended Improved all received their share of updates. The first Openmoko Programming Competition, hosted by Aapo Rantalainen and Risto H. Kurppa, was announced and the winner will now get a prize provided by the community, currently at 314€ and a leather case for Freerunner (39€)! A week later, a second contest was announced by Rakshat Hooja, where the current bounty stands at 125€. Discussions continued on the subjects of cool chess games, browsers on the Neo, and of course, keyboards (we love our keyboards), and much more.

Period Apr ~ May 2009

The GTA03 project canceled "cuts staff, turns focus on ... Plan B". Article with details. The focus will be on improving the FreeRunner GTA02.

 What happens next?
 "There were two paths:
 A: Fulfill our promises on FreeRunner and launch GTA03
 B: Fulfill our promises on FreeRunner and launch project B.
 We will talk more about project B in the coming months, but these salient facts guided our decisions:
 1. GTA03 was in constant flux as a design.
 2. GTA03 schedule was consequently always slipping.
 3. The resources required for GTA03 are 3X those required for Project B.
 4. OM doesn’t have 3X resources" -FreeRunner: not completely dead, yet.
