This new Maemo Info Center library is planned to be THE place to look for official Maemo documentation (and Maemo.org wiki will continue to be THE place to look for unofficial docs :). 

I do nto think we have much documentation in Forum Nokia exception being some training slideware and Hildon 2.2. UI guides. I have now converted all those 4 Hildon 2.2. UI guides into laTex and I will publish them shortly in Maemo Info Centeras official documents (they will also be available as PDF/HTML downloadables as all other Latex docs).

I was planning to update and release pyMameo documentation in Info Center but it was decided last summer (2009) by our product management that we do not release Python (pyMaemo) documentation as official documentation. So I cannot add Python documents (and I have not even verified do we have updated pyMaemo docs for Fremantle available).

I have to ask from product management if Gtkmm documents could be released as they provide kind of transition layer from GTK (C) to Qt (C++).
