Mosquitto for MQ Telemetry Transport publish/subscribe for Maemo 4 & 5
Yuvraaj Kelkar has ported the Mosquitto pub/sub transport to Diablo and Fremantle: I needed a decent open source and easily configurable way to provide push support for all the services that would benefit from using a push model. For example, email: wouldn't it be nice if there were a way for a script to subscribe to a feed that updated whenever there was a new email? That script would run on the n900 and would initiate an email update only when it got the update message. No more email polling = more battery life. This can be applied to other things as well - for example, updating DialCentral or TOR or qgvdial whenever there is a contacts update... or on an incoming GV Text message... or an incoming GV phone call... Packages for developers are available in both Diablo and Fremantle's Extras-devel.
SMSBomb for sending a specified number of SMS messages to a number
A new application from Tom D, SMSBomb, allows users to automatically send a series of text messages at a specified interval: This application sends a specified number of SMS messages to a phone number with a specified delay between each message. It supports several different SMS services, including carrier SMS, and Google Voice (using qgvdial). Although the author explains its intended primarily for research purposes, the most predictable usage is likely for pranking or irritation, so users should probably understand the potentian criminal implications of mass SMS spam (depending on your jurisdiction). Also: it's in Extras-devel.
TwimGo 2.7 updated with bug fixes and new dark theme
Tommi Laukkanen has announced a new release of TwimGo, his QML-based Twitter client, with bug fixes and a new dark theme: I spent last few days testing my recent changes to TwimGo, Qt based Twitter client. Now it uses darker theme which looks awesome on my N8 and N900 and should look magical on your E7′s ClearBlack screens (let me know how it looks :)). I also tweaked the buttons look&feel and I think that they look stunning now. I might release the Button component as separate QML file if you wish. Tommi is still distributing the app as binary packages available from projects.forum.nokia.com.
