Do you own a Nokia N900? We just released the first stable* Marble packages for Maemo. If you read this on your N900, they’re just one click away:
Like the versions released earlier, the packages are based on the Qt version of Marble. It’s the first time we provide one-click install packages, though. They’re expected to install seamlessly using the graphical program manager. Marble can be started from the application menu afterwards. Notice that the one-click installer above installs the light version of Marble (5.7 MB) that only has the OpenStreetMap theme installed. Install marble-maps from the Navigation section of the program manager to get all other themes. Please report feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*The fine print:
We call the packages stable because they come off the stable (KDE/4.5) Subversion branch. Indeed I don’t expect any serious bugs. However, we are aware of some annoyances in the current user interface that we plan to improve in the upcoming versions. Please don’t report any bugs against the tab bar on the left taking too much space, some dialogs being hard to navigate or some map themes rendering slow. We are aware of this and plan to fix it. With that in mind, have fun using Marble on Maemo 🙂
Besides improving the user interface and responsiveness, we do have exciting new features like offline routing and a turn-by-turn navigation mode in the pipeline for 4.6 / Marble 0.11. Are you interested to help out? We can use all sorts of talents who help us improving graphics, write documentation, sort out bugs or add new features… Please join our mailing list or lurk around in #marble on Freenode.
