First LiPS Forum standards released June 11, 2007Posted by Florian in GPE, Maemo, Source.
After several unpleasant topics I have good news again:
The LiPS Forum just released their first set of standards to the public. These include the LiPS Reference Model, Address Book and Voice Call backends and user interface service specifications. The most interesting fact here is that these are based on… GTK 2.x.
The full announcement can be found at the website of the LiPS Forum here.
This is a quite important step for our GPE Phone Edition project which works on an Open Source implementation of these standards and of course for the development of Linux based phones in general too.
LiPS is an industry consortium which defines standards for mobile phones based on Linux and related Open Source solutions. In the current members list we find some quite well known companies in the Open Source landscape.
