Hi,
QtMoko v56 is released. You can download from here [1] or upgrade from v55 
with apt.

There are only minimal changes to the source code:

* reverted to a bit older 3.7 kernel which does not have omap off mode enabled
* doing AT_OPSYS=0,2 on modem startup

The first change should prevent "imprecise external abort" and dbus SIGBUS 
crash. The second change could reduce number of modem reenumerations.

The good thing is that you'll get quite solid phone functions - i tried 200 
phone calls and no modem reenumerate nor any other problem was noticed.

The bad thing is that phone will eat a bit more power in suspend 16->22mA and 
it will have slow GPRS connection. However you can easily switch to 3G with 
minicom -D /dev/ttyHS_Control and sending AT_OPSYS=3,2 before dialing 
internet.

The release also comes with camera application preinstalled - but the app is 
not working with GTA04 camera yet.

Let's hope this release will be a stable and well working for some time.

Cheers

Radek
