Current latest released tarballs are in the 2.0.* series; these are of the Git main branch.
Recent work has focussed on the migration to GNOME-3. As gnome-pilot has been around for a while, with a fairly stable (archaic?) code-base, there has been quite a bit of work required to modernise it it for gnome-3. Much of this work has been done on the recent "dbus" branch D-Bus to replace Bonobo, which was merged with the main branch on 2010-08-09.
To check out the development version of gnome-pilot, you should use:
- git clone git://git.gnome.org/gnome-pilot/
- git clone git://git.gnome.org/gnome-pilot-conduits/
Known Issues with current release (2.0.17)
Bluetooth sync works, but a bug in the pilot-link library means the gnome-pilot daemon will die after a sync. This has been fixed in source and should appear with pilot-link version 0.12.4. For people interested in patching, there is a patch available here
Work currently being done
- Removal of deprecated libgnome/libgnomeui/libgtk+ symbols
- Replacement of bonobo with dbus
- Incorporation of the evolution conduits into the gnome-pilot codebase.
- A new website? or just use this wiki for now? volunteers?
