After a short hiatus, I finally resumed work on my new Jabber/XMPP client project, which I christened ‘Greem’. The main goal of the project is to create a mobile Jabber/XMPP client for the Qtopia platform. The nice thing about Qtopia is that its target audience keeps on expanding: besides running on the GreenPhone (of which Trolltech was kind enough to provide me with one), Qtopia has recently been ported to the Neo 1973 (OpenMoko), and even Windows CE and Windows Mobile. In this post, I briefly describe what the expectations and the goals are for Greem, and how Psi fits into the picture.
Qtopia Greenphone Grant
A month or 2 ago, I applied for the Qtopia Greenphone Innovation Grant Program, an initiative from TrollTech to promote the development of applications for their Linux-based Qtopia Greenphone. I probably won’t surprise anyone by saying that I sent in a proposal about writing a good, cross-platform, mobile Jabber/XMPP client. Anyway, I was very excited to receive a mail from TrollTech yesterday, stating that my proposal was accepted by their review panel!
