After nearly a year since starting (entirely my fault), the first "stable" community SSU is now available in the maemo.org repository. Many thanks to all the testers who made this possible :-)

So, without further ado, see the wiki for installation instructions and changelog.

Now that this is out it frees up -testing for more experimental work. If anyone wants to contribute in any way, please ping me. Ways to participate include
  • Adopt a package, evaluate and apply existing patches to it.
  • Discover patches or other improvements that can be applied.
  • For the extra brave, follow the community-testing repository and report any issues found.
  • Maintain and improve the wiki pages.

For reference, the old thread is here and still contains a lot of useful information.

i guess one area to investigate would be how recent a version of modest is still compatible with diablo.

Flashing went fine on both my 800 and 810. Many thanks.
I had flashed the interim "Testing" SSU already on both machines.

The .install file of the "stable" version looks like this:
Code:
[install]
catalogues = community-testing
package = community-ssu-enabler

[community-testing]
name = Community SSU
uri = http://repository.maemo.org/community/
components = free non-free
It would work but is confusing people which open it in a editor. I assume this would be the "correct" version:

Code:
[install]
catalogues = community
package = community-ssu-enabler

[community]
name = Community SSU
uri = http://repository.maemo.org/community/
components = free non-free
But that's peanuts

Thanks for making this happen!

This sounds awesome! As someone new to this, would it be possible to share some of the benefits (aside from the short term goals) that someone could expect to get from using this?

Thank you in advance!

True, the catalogue label can be confusing (it's just a label though so as long as the two red bits match it'll work). I don't have access to modify it, but I'll ping X-Fade to change it.

Answered on earlier thread with the following:

If you are not affected by any of the bugs fixed (see changelog), then not much. The main enhancement so far is the screen rotation support (but you may already have this installed independently anyway). There are also some more minor enhancements to busybox and PDF viewer which make life a bit easier, probably not the highest priority for most people but they were for me, so there ;-)

Going forward, what would you like to see included (keeping in mind that non-free components are out of scope for obvious reasons)?
That changelog is here.

You can see generally the earlier thread, posts 544 through 547.

Sorry if this has been covered but I didn't see the answer in the wiki:

I'm currently running the OS2008 Community SSU 5.2010.32-3 testing package. Should I now un-install this and install the stable SSU pack?

Also, is the enabler package different than for the testing package - and if so can I now also uninstall the testing-enabler?

Thanks.

If you are accepting suggestions on what should/could go into the next SSU I got one for you

Draglock (or the later version) - The ability to lock the widgets in place on the screen to avoid accidentally moving them around.

No need, you can just upgrade from 32-3 to 33-1 via the application manager. If you prefer to track the stable version from now on you can just remove (or disable) the -testing repository from Tools -> Application catalogue.

Also, is the enabler package different than for the testing package
No, as both repositories are signed with the same key.

AKA bug 2639, it's already in the queue :-)
