Hi,
QtMoko v53 is available now. If you are interested in GPS working in navit, go 
on. If not it's not worth upgrading.

No tarbals this time, just do:

	apt-get update
	apt-get dist-upgrade

It will fetch GPSD daemon - QtMoko now uses it for GPS data and it must be 
congured. Edit /etc/default/gpsd and make sure it has:

	START_DAEMON="true"
	DEVICES="/dev/ttyO1"

That's all. You can now reinstall navit (Applications->More apps->click on 
navit) and you should be able to see your position on map once GPS get's fix.

There is an ugly regression in navit - if you click "Exit" icon, it will take 
like 30s to end up. The source of the problems is the latest commits which 
adds QWhereabouts to navit. The delay is in QWhereabouts destructor, but i 
couldnt find what's wrong exactly yet...

List of changes since v52:

* gps uses gpsd and gpspipe (Neil Jerram)
* qx - fix setting of DISPLAY variable (Neil Jerram)
* qx - fix Xfbdev invocation (Neil Jerram)
* gps satellites should work again

Credits for the release go to Neil Jerram this time!

Cheers

Radek

PS: still struggling with release Freerunner. It will take more time...
