Update PR1.2 Coming Soon for the N950. Release for N9 Close Behind?
Over at the Nokia Developers site they have announced that they will be releasing PR 1.2 for the developers phone the N950. Why does this matter to me and you? Because this is how Nokia tests the new builds before they release it to the general public on the N9.
The goal of this early access release is to enable developers to verify that their applications do not exhibit any regressions in the new platform version.
Here is the important parts of the post:
We will be shortly releasing a developer edition of MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan 1.2 beta (feel free to crack a joke v 1.2 here) to developers with Nokia N950 Developer Device. The goal of this early access release is to enable developers to verify that their applications do not exhibit any regressions in the new platform version.
This release will be available as a one-click-flasher for Nokia N950 Developer Device. In other words, in order to participate in this beta you need to already have a Nokia N950 Developer Device.
We have done our best to ensure full binary compatibility from Harmattan 1.0 and 1.1 (and 1.1.1 Arabic) to Harmattan 1.2, but we want to offer developers the opportunity to test and verify their apps on the real thing before actual global roll out of the consumer release. There will be also small changes between beta and final consumer release, mostly focusing on ensuring release robustness and performance.
