QGPSLog.png QGPSLog 0.1.99

QGPSLog is a GPS logging GUI that uses FSO for GPS and power control. It's simple and never supposed to get a map. Main target was to do track logging (start,stop,split) and avoid supsend when logging. You can specify a minimum battery capacity needed to log, otherwise it will stop logging.

Elmdentica.png elmdentica 0.8.0

Elmdentica is a simple Identi.ca client made with Elementary. It's easy to use, and it will be even easier to setup. After installing you need to add your accounts. Recent changes are:

  • a bit more polished screens and exciting new features:
  • you can have more than one account, and if you have many accounts, only a few of them enabled or disabled quickly.
  • you have a messages and posts cache (albeit the last one is still incomplete)

  • 2010-02-07 FOSDEM 2010 | Openmoko Devroom at FOSDEM 2010 featuring FSO, Android, SHR and Hackable:1
  • Golden Delicious Computers GmbH&Co. KG have done another upgrade and are now the first to sell the new variant GTA02A7+. The difference to the A7 is that the #1024 rework ("recamping bug") has already been applied. Therefore the A7+ device now has a much longer standby time in the case that the Calypso GSM modem goes to sleep mode. The company still offers the rework of #1024 bug.
