Qalee is a phone environment developed in Qt4 above the fso stack. It works on the freerunner under any distribution that supports Qt4. It's not finished yet but you can test a preview version with the official Qalee distributon. This release includes no new features, but many fixes for things that didn’t work or were incomplete in 0.0.2. You can read full announcement, or take a look at some of changes:
Qalee is in pre-alpha stage, a lot of thinks are not coded yet, other are broken, some may be changed. It's just a preview version of the current work!

QSuunto-Lite is an application to download your logged dives from your Suunto dive computer or view previously dowloaded ones.

- Thomas White is implementing direct rendering for the Neo FreeRunner, with its SMedia Glamo3362 graphics accelerator. With his great work we will have a well-defined system to share access to the chip, enabling cooperation between the X server and programs using features such as hardware MPEG decoding or 3D graphics. Recently he didn't post much on his blog, but thats just because he spent most of his time and effort for coding. If you are interested in some details about this project, it is here. There are also available videos of Thomas White's work in ogv format, or on youtube
