I am hoping we can persuade Anton to come out of retirement and produce and update to Cacko, if we can come up with a realistic list of things that would be a genuine step forwards.

So, please consider responding with a feature or update item, preferably with a pointer to the source/resources required. If people can offer information as to any updates and new packages that Sharp produced that Cacko doesn't have, or even standard gnu/linux packages that need updating due to security fixes etc.

Thanks!

It seems quite a few programs for Sharp ROM are still under active development in the Japanese communities,
such as
Ebt/EBt-lit: http://www001.upp.so-net.ne.jp/tokada/SL-C...t_index_en.html
Ruby on Rails: http://www7a.biglobe.ne.jp/~ruby-gaia/Ruby...2000_tab03.html
NeoCal: http://bxk07344.blog.so-net.ne.jp/2008-02-20

There are some really nice programs which may have been overlooked by non-Japanese users. The best example is this: http://homepage2.nifty.com/ishihata/yoteihyouforsl-cxxx.htm
This calendar program fares much better than the stock PIMs and is less blaoted than KO/Pi+KA/Pi. It would be great if it is translated into English (contact the developer?).

A look at these Japanese sites will give you some ideas of what's going on with the Zaurus in Japan, even without knowing Japanese: http://d.hatena.ne.jp/yamadaatmn/searchdia...%2a%5bZaurus%5d
http://www.nurs.or.jp/~tanapan/toybox/index.html

Remeber this page has some very nice programs. Some are still being maintained and updated, even Emacs cvs 23.0.50!
http://www.focv.com/ipkg/

Of course Meanie's packages are essential addons! http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/

Personally, I think an updated fsck tool is also very important (the stock one is just like a dinosaur), which is very useful as a rescue/repair tool of other systems.

One alternative to update softwares in Sharp/Cacko is to convert from Debian ARM packages, as long as the dependencies (esp. libraries) are met.
