[maemo-users] Porting to Chinook: Hildon API changes

We are currently porting GPE to chinook.  I am fairly confident I have 
resolved the issues with changed libraries but there seem to be some HIldon 
API changes and I am not a Hildon programmer.  We would appreciate any 
pointers to documentation or other suggestions for making these changes.  I 
haven't found much useful information on these changes using Google.

There are three specific issues in GPE applications...

1) This must be the easiest: the code currently turns off capitalisation in a 
hildon input window using:


Is there an equivalent of this in Chinook?

2) hildon-app and hildon-appview seem to have gone away.  Any guide to porting 
that code to use hildon-program and hildon-window?

3) hildon-home-plugin seems to have disappeared.  I presume this mechanism has 
changed.  Any guide to how to port that code?

By the way, if you have access to a device running chinook and would be 
interested in helping test the GPE port, let me know.
