I tried looking through all the forums for a similar issue, but couldn't find one, so was going to report a bug, but never got around to it...

Lame that they closed it!

This isn't a bug of PR1.2. You uninstalled home screen background settings after upgrading to PR1.2 which broke the menu.

And thus went 7 (or more?) years of mobile research down the drain. So, I guess Maemo really was ahead of its time. But yeah, it's clear that it was never even given a chance to become anything else than a research project. Thank you for everything, Kallasvuo and Elop.

I have never thought that the day I said this would come, but, what the heck, Nokia? Samsung really deserves to overtake you.

But then maybe we should just create our own anyhow and then hope they'll have the decency to look at it.

Good idea, we need a community tracker, like there was for Maemo5x.
I think that infrastructure is already at FMC IIRC....
Of course it's unlikely we'll get Nokia to look at much of it...
But at least we'll have one central place where everything's properly documented.
And that will facilitate the community to do what they can, where they can.

Further acceleration of next billion strategy?

EDIT: I think there is little chance for CSSU because Nokia will not open any Harmattan closed components in the near future... due to sharing with meltemi

Aww man too bad, but at least the bugs that are reported will be fixed. It's better than nothing.

I don't regret my purchase though, I'm gonna ware my N9 down until it breaks.

Also, guys I found swiping up to answer/reject calls painfully stuttering. I had this since the dawn of time but have just reported a bug for it as it never went away despite couple firmware updates. Actually I reported it quite before they posted the news of not taking any more bugs. Please vote if you have the same thing here. Hopefully they look at it coz I have 2 reports still not assigned and its been sitting for a while now. Thanks.

Yup I wanted to file a report for that too, but kept putting it off(and look what happened).

That's what I was told by the Harmattan people working there.

But in the end, it's just closing a building where only a bunch of people were working anyway. People are just moving offices elsewhere, so this is not really tragic. But the idea of closing down Maemo's birthplace is sad.

I Know I should shut up and peoople are pissed about me being negative or a "troll".

But Seriously: People have to realise N9 will not get big updates anyway so I can undestand if the small people behind Harmattan closing the bugtracker because of lack of time.

There already is lots of feature requests that is not even possible to fix/improve with the small team behind Harmattan. Still I see people who want us to vote for theyr bugs. So IMHO! We should all make sure IMPORTANT bugs get attention instead crying about closed bugtracker or feature requests that never will appear.

You have to realise the facts: Only the most IMPORTANT bugs will be fixed in feature updates.

I also saw alot of complaints in the announcement. But dont blame the few people behind Harmattan for Nokias decisions. Not they'r fault.

And sending messages to Elop about "open the bugtracker again" is IMHO just plain ridicilous. Again the team will not have any time to FIX those bugs/improvements anyway.

Btw... If you havent got an N9 yet go get one before its to late. Theyr ridicilous lowpriced in my country now even if we only get small improvements its well worth the money. Because I take that as N9 is soon abandoned And this is the last cool most open device I know of as todays date

I'm not sure why folks would say that it's not a big deal. It means another staff and resource reduction around Harmattan and that's a big deal.
