> The most important thing is that ringtones and sound in calls should now
> thanks to gstreamer and pulseaudio work. It basically works now like
> All sound goes to pulseaudio. When there is a call the state switching

> voice-routing can route voice.
> Please note that pulseaudio is in the image completely unconfigured. It

> You can also try media player - it can now play videos.
> Other changes are quite self explaining.
> As for future - in master we have now nearly working QtMoko on top of Qt
> 4.8.3. There is just one bug that has to be fixed and it looks that
> QtMoko now
> also runs decently on debian wheezy/armhf so this could be our target

> We will also have support for html5 video when we switch to qt 4.8 - i
> tested youtube and dailymotion and they work (although with glitches)...
> Another thing that would be nice to get fixed is the tarball size. It
> from 98MB to 160MB due to gstreamer dependecies. I wonder how this could
> solved. I dont think we need all the plugins that make it so big, but
> has all in one big package...
> If you are wondering about Freerunner - i am going to skip this release,
> there's not much useful for Freeruner now. I will do release for
> with Qt 4.8 later.
> Thanks everybody who helped with this release - special thanks to Neil
> and Gilles!
