QtMoko has Christmas release for you. It's a little experimental and has two 
regressions - but also a tons of new stuff! The difference to normal release 
is that all the avaliable apps are preinstalled and ready to use.

You can download tarbal here [1].

First the regressions: after reboot from other rootfs new messages from SIM 
are missing sender name - instead they show "Draft message". Maybe something 
similar can happen with missed calls. I hope to get these fixed for next 

Now the new stuff. I have ported libSDL to QtMoko which means that you can 
just apt-get install SDL-program, export SDL video driver to QtMoko and it 
will run. You can also add simple script which rotates screen and desktop 
files for launching it and javascript function for mapping touch screen to 
keys. Here is list of SDL apps that are packaged this way for qtmoko:

* dosbox
* frozen bubble
* opendune
* openttd
* pingus
* prboom
* scummvm
* tuxpaint

Except SDL apps i have also ported cool app minitube - it allows you to 
comfortably browse, play and download youtube videos.

The tarbal has also installed chromium browser under QX.

Complete changelog is here:

* upgrade to qt 4.8.3
* support for html5 video in browsers
* enable typing in the To field, when sending an email (Neil Jerram)

* dmesg is included in /modem_reenumerate.log
* qtmoko apt repo keys are installed by default
* DISPLAY is no longer set in qpe.env to not confuse pulseaudio (Neil Jerram)
* phonon is now built and can be used by applications
