I'm pleased to announce that Raemo 0.80 Beta is now released. Raemo
(Remote Application Execution for Maemo Os) is a tool that eases
on-device testing. Here's some of the release's features:

* Persistent remote sessions, so for example working directory is stored
across calls
* Session tracking which allows for example running different remote
shell instances from different TTYs
* Mounting the remote device's file system and running applications
inside the mount with automatic path resolving
* Remote device's screen can be imported to the desktop computer to ease
GUI program testing
* Object oriented server-client architecture which supports easily
adding new services and different backends in any programming language
supporting D-Bus
* Requires only a SSH server and optionally VNC running on the target
* Configuration files for easy startup

For more information see Raemo's project page[1] at garage and full
release notes and screenshots can be found at Raemo's home page[2]. To
get started see Raemo quickstart[3] If you are interested in Raemo's
internals and perhaps development, see the brief architecture

All community contribution is greatly appreciated. Bug reports, feature
requests and patches are very welcome at the project page's[1] trackers.

(Please note that although this software is developed by Nokia, it's not
officially supported due to the early development status.)
