Nokia to release Python S60 as Open Source
Yup. It's official, and you can download the source code now. I understand it wasn't an easy process, but it's good that it's finally done. The licenses seem to be Apache License v2 and the Python License.
Ugh. I don't like Sourceforge at all. I've always found its interface to be repulsing, and I can never find what I am looking for.
Now, if only there were more open source hackers on S60... Symbian is difficult, and not very endearing to a casual programmer (though you could arguably say the same thing about MIDP Java). But I hope the source code will allow others to also work on their alternative programming environments (OPL, anyone?) for S60 as well. These new platforms do make smartphone programming a lot easier.
