Not been long since my last post, but one of the two things stopping me from promoting to -testing is now implemented. Thanks to all the great minds on IRC (#maemo on freenode, come visit!) and lizardo for translating my C-code to working python ctypes code (example).
The native addressbook widgets are all part of 0.7.0, as well as what should be perfect number <> contact matching and no more mistakes where it shows the wrong contact if the name was a subset of another name. Joy all around!
In the next release I’ve added some caching of name/avatar lookup which should lead to some load time improvements if you, like me, get most of your MMS from the same few persons.
Another fix in the next release is that ‘Havoc’ mode will work correctly with APN’s requiring username and password on connect.
Btw, 0.7.0 is available in -devel now!
