A new set of tools for developers has been made available in the maemo
These are the tool packages just released, some of them include multiple

bluez-hcidump   - analyzes bluetooth HCI packets
htop            - a nice interactive process viewer
nano            - a lightweight editor
netcat          - the 'TCP/IP swiss army knife'
sysstat         - tools for analyzing system performance
tcpdump         - network monitoring and data acquisition tool
wireless-tools  - tools for linux Wireless Extensions
x-debug-tools   - utilities for debugging X11 server and clients
xresponse       - measure UI response times to mouse click events
xrestop         - a resource usage monitor for X11 server

These packages have been added to the list of officially supported
tools, which also includes links to the corresponding man pages:


I'd also like to use this opportunity to introduce myself to the maemo
developer community.

I joined the OSSO team in Nokia a bit over a month ago as a tools
specialist and my job amongst other things is to see what kind of tools
the maemo developer community is using and wanting to use. If possible
I'll try to bring those tools eventually easily available for you guys.

Don't be afraid to use the bugzilla to enter enhancement requests to the
sdk/tools category.

I hope to see many of you in GUADEC :-)
