Here (including links to the differences between beta and beta2). Highlights from the release notes:

* Status menu area available. Plugins for the status area can be developed and tested. Note that the process hildon-status-menu needs to be started manually at the moment as it is not yet integrated into the init scripts in scratchbox environment.

* statusbar-alarm-dbus-api opensourced.

10. Known issues in SDK

The following issues have been noted during the testing of the SDK:

1. In armel target, the hildon UI does not come up while starting the hildon application framework. This is mainly due drawbacks in the user mode qemu.

2. Task switcher is not present. Hence you can run one application at a time from the UI. The final Maemo 5 will contain however the task switcher.

3. The SDK is not currently usable with only open components mainly due to come open to closed dependencies. This makes installation of Nokia closed binaries crucial for the complete functionality of the SDK.

4. On launching Application Manager, "Operation failed" banner appears and one cannot save any newly added catalogues. This can be solved by installing fakeroot-net package from the SDK repository which provides fakeroot command to the application. However, the catalogues fail to refresh completely. This problem is being investigated internally.

5.The performance of clutter can be improved by enabling hardware acceleration if not enabled already. In some cases, it would require installing restricted/proprietary drivers (Eg: on host machines with ATI or NVedia graphics card). Refer wiki for more details

6. Unnecessary warnings and debugging messages are printed out when the hildon application framework is started.
As can be seen the armel mode is still not working in Scratchbox... not very happy.

Honestly though, isn't it the idea to develop your app in X86, and make it work there, and then just dpkg-buildpackage it in the build target? Qemu-arm isn't perfectly but it's OK for building these days.

Why so many packages were removed?

No?

I'm building directly for arm and running on the tablet through SSH. A little slower and much more natural.

Plus I would not stand to build libwebkit for another target just for the sake of it.

Interesting - the FM transmitter translations have been removed:

http://repository.maemo.org/unstable...t_changes.html

The status-bar-usb translations have also been removed (from Nokia Binaries), but have been added in different form in the source packages.

The "mount" utility has been added. That should make qole happy and easy debian possible?

OMG!!!11eleven!

They have leaked a photo of the device among the SDK icons.
Check /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/hildon/widget_device.png
