mFakeCaller - fakes an incoming call when you need an excuse
mFakeCaller by Ryan Faulkner fakes an incoming call - for those awkward situations when you just need some excuse to flee. You can click the icon to run and you'll get a standard "Private number" spoof call with call tone and rumble. Clicking the answer button greys it out, changes it to a speaker button, and starts the 'call' timer. It also accepts parameters, that way you can choose the caller image and caller number/name/message - making it much more convincing.

MeeGo 1.1 SDK Beta Release
MeeGo 1.1 SDK beta has been released.

This release includes Qt Quick, the Javascript-inspired framework that enables rapid development of mobile applications. Although the heart of MeeGo SDK is Qt Creator, you can also use basic functionalities directly from the command line. MeeGo SDK is extensible and we are working on different plug-ins that introduce new tools and targets.

This release is labelled as 1.1 Beta. The final version will be aligned with the MeeGo Compliance specification (draft currently under review) and will include MS Windows support (still unstable). Feedback and contributions are welcome through the meego-sdk mailing list.

Stellarium Mobile - N900 optimized planetarium
Stellarium Mobile from Fabien Chereau is a planetarium application for your Nokia N900. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope. It also features an intuitive touch-screen-friendly user interface and allows GPS positioning and accelerometer control.

Stellarium Mobile is a commercial application (costing 3 euros) based on the free Stellarium, but fully N900 optimized (including OpenGL ES2 rendering engine) and thus much easier and faster to use and well worth the money.

1200 packages now listed in our Maemo Software Catalog
Maybe not a milestone, but something surely worth mentioning: our Maemo Software Catalog now includes 1200 applications in 33 categories, which makes it probably the largest and easiest to browse Nokia N900 software directory.

If you know/use/created an application that isn't listed yet, please contact us and let us know about it so that we can add it. I'd also like to encourage everyone to rate and comment on existing applications - with up to 10.000 page views of the Software catalog a day your opinions and ratings will surely help other N900 users to choose the best software for their needs and solve problems with the ones they already use.

Magread - magnetic stripe reader
MagRead by Jeffrey Malone is designed to read all types of magnetic stripes (credit cards, driver licenses, etc.) that follow the ABA or IATA encoding schemes. In addition, it attempts to format the data from cards it recognises. Magnetic stripe data is read over the audio input jack on the mobile phone. A hardware adapter is required, which primarily consists of something similar to an old cassette tape head.

Sudser - more secure root access
Sudser from Andrew Zabolotny allows the user to execute commands with root priviledges. It contains additional config files to 'sudo', which makes it work similar to Ubuntu. Unlike most similar packages (becomeroot, easyroot, rootsh), it can provide additional security by protecting root access with a password. To invoke a command with administrative priviledges, open a terminal and type 'sudo [command]' or just 'rush' to get a root shell. If you would like to setup a more secure configuration, type sudser command. It will ask you for a password, and then it will allow access only to root shell, and only after you enter the user password.
