[maemo-users] [maemo-users] ANN: Eagle 0.5 and Maemo Task Manager 1.0

I'm happy to announce the 0.5 version of Eagle[1] and release the new Maemo 
Task Manager[2,3].

This new Eagle version comes with some improvements and a new component: a 
Rich Text renderer. This new component is able to parse and display a HTML 
subset, with font options and lists, however we still miss tables. Eagle is 
improving fast, but it's API is almost stable, no radical changes are 
expected in near future, just bugfixes, optimizations and few missing 
components to be added (like a notebook/tabcontrol-like widget).

Another contribution to both Maemo and Eagle community is the brand new "Maemo 
Task Manager", which allows you to monitor processes and even kill them 
(useful for developers and bleeding edge users). Task Manager was created to 
show how easy is to develop an application using Python and Eagle: GUI code, 
with all bells and whistles, is just 225 lines (counting spaces and comments 
and help text!), while code to read "/proc" and calc statistics is about 211.

Please report bugs to my mail: gustavo.barbieri at indt.org.br

Task Manager, Eagle and PyMaemo are sponsored by INdT.
