Meego Harmattan PR1.2 coming soon for Nokia N950

| January 16, 2012 | 10 Replies

The Nokia Developer site says that PR1.2 is coming soon for the developer unit, Nokia N950. So soon for N9 too. Sorry rushing, exam week :S. For a heads up on what’s coming, take a look back at this post of PR1.2 screenshots from the N9.

We will be shortly releasing a developer edition of MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan 1.2 beta (feel free to crack a joke v 1.2 here) to developers with Nokia N950 Developer Device. The goal of this early access release is to enable developers to verify that their applications do not exhibit any regressions in the new platform version.

This release will be available as a one-click-flasher for Nokia N950 Developer Device. In other words, in order to participate in this beta you need to already have a Nokia N950 Developer Device. 

We have done our best to ensure full binary compatibility from Harmattan 1.0 and 1.1 (and 1.1.1 Arabic) to Harmattan 1.2, but we want to offer developers the opportunity to test and verify their apps on the real thing before actual global roll out of the consumer release. There will be also small changes between beta and final consumer release, mostly focusing on ensuring release robustness and performance.

There is at least one known change in the Harmattan 1.2 (and 1.1.1 Arabic) that is impacting developers: The system font change. See blog posts The default font will change — to bigger and better (18th Dec 2011)Font change part 2: playing with the line height (21st dec 2011) and Font change part 3: Flexible UI layouts (5th Jan 2012) for more details.

More information on the release features and fixes, distribution and Nokia N9 support will be available later. The Nokia N950 Developer Device program was closed in the summer, and thus no new entrants are accepted.

Cheers Morpog for the tip!

    Great.. Wonder if PR1.2 will come with Qt4.8 after confirmation that 4.8 will come soon for Nokia devices (Symbian – confirmed & Harmattan – feel it should get)….

    It’s pretty amazing in my mind that Nokia is still supporting MeeGo. Most companies would have left them to death.

    Plan B is still here, it seems.

    It’s a shame that there’s no N9 developer program for newcomers.
