MeeGo Source Code Shared w/Devs

Anyone’s who interested in the MeeGo mobile operating system can now get his (or her) hands on an early version of it.  The handset baseline source code was released yesterday for developers to inspect and tinker with.

The MeeGo team is referring to this release as “Day 1,” and according to an official blog post, the MeeGo Project Handset Day 1 includes “MeeGo APIs, incorporating Qt and MeeGo Touch UI Framework (MTF).”

Then there’s a “[s]ubset of the handset reference UI and applications,” which amounts to a status bar, home screen, lock screen, application launcher, virtual keyboard, and a smattering of simple applications.

Finally, this release makes available the MeeGo Core OS and “[h]ardware adaptation support for Intel Atom-based handset (Moorestown) and ARM-based Nokia N900.”

MeeGo 1.1 is still on track to land in October, by the way.
