The open source MeeGo N900 adaptation project is nearing fruition. It brings audio call functionality with proper signaling and pulse audio stack working on the Nokia N900, including a brand new open source modem.

According to the MeeGo community blog site:

We are now in last phase of MeeGo 1.1 finalization, focusing on fixing final release blocker bugs, making sure that everything that is in already actually works, and that the user experience of the first MeeGo version with the Handset UX is good. Creating this version is important because it gives developers, especially handset application developers, a relatively stable ground for stating their work.

The blog also reveals that the PR 1.3 update to the Maemo operating system, which is used on Nokia's N900 smartphone, is also almost ready. Once it is released it will allow users to run both Maemo and MeeGo on the N900, enabling developers to write applications using the Qt framework, and then test them on both Maemo and MeeGo, directly on their N900 devices.

In the recent IProgrammer poll asking you to vote for your favourite mobile platform MeeGo gained 6% of the votes and was placed at the top of the minority pltforms - i.e. below Android, IPhone and Windows Phone 7 but above Symbian, Blackberry, bada and Java ME. So this news will give at least some of our readers cause for celebration.
