I'd like to show you a preview of the most important changes I've planned for the future:
As you can see in the attached image the project will be renamed to "Open Mobile Suite". This is because I will also support devices which aren't based on the S60 operating system. Such mobile operating systems are for example Android and - if Nokia doesn't screw things completely up * - also MeeGo.
The client application on the PC is going to be splitted in several parts. This makes it possible to replace the User interface.
I'll try to code an plugin for Telepathy that allows the writing of chat messages over SMS from every Telepathy-compatible client (for example empathy or the new KDE-Telepathy application).
You can also see your contacts and calendar entries in your KDE PIM suite (kaddressbook and korganizer), because I'll write an Akonadi backend for it.
The communication of these components relies on the D-Bus inter-process communication system, which is compatible with Linux, Windows** and Mac OS X.
* Yes, this is a reference to today's announcement from Nokia about the cooperation with Microsoft and the consequences of it for MeeGo.
** For the time being the Qt mainloop isn't supported in dbus-python, but I hope this will change soon.
I commited an interesting change to SVN:
You can mark contacts as favorites to quickly start a chat (eg if you rightclick on the tray icon)
There are static favorites (favorites you defined) and dynamic favorites (eg contacts with the most messages in the last 15 days)
