OpenMoko 2008.8

The new OpenMoko distribution as released in the wild today.

Om 2008.8 is one of the many distributions that currently work on the Openmoko phones. You can compare a distribution with an Operating System on normal computers.

Om 2008.8 is the successor to Om 2007.2 and had ASU as a codename. Om 2008.8 uses EFL for the launcher, custom UI applications and Qtopia on X11 for telephony. It is the first step from GTK+ on x11 to using multiple toolkits in combination. Om 2008.8 now supports EFL, Qtopia and GTK+ applications.
