Ah... the first official missed 2004 post.  
sigh... been flashing my new 6000 for a week.... nothing is quite right, and I'm at the point with oe of making python errors rather than copies of nano.....
Happy new year all!

It means they've missed their deadline, and if it comes as a surprise to you, well, it shouldn't.
There is no deadline.  They will appear when we can get them available.

I gotta back up lpotter, No where in this thread do I see a release date for the new ROM(s) being announced by him or set in stone on the Trolltech website.

The department of the company I work in does web design, Sometimes site launches are exactly the day and time we say they are, sometimes the sites are launched after that date and time, sometimes they are launched before the deadline.

Sure we want to launch every product exactly when we are supposed to but that doesn't always happen, its the way the world works.

The people at Trolltech are doing a nice thing for our community by developing these ROM(s) for our hardware, I highly doubt that Sharp is paying them to release a new ROM for devices they no longer sell.

Sure it may just be their form of viral marketing (Hey check out this cool new Qtopia ROM on my Zaurus!) to increase knowledge about their product and attract developers who will license their toolkit but their a company and are out to make a profit.

"Trolltech is currently pursuing a plan to provide Qtopia 2.1 ROMs for various zaurus models. We expect to make these available in late 2004."

Perhaps they work in Financial Years instead of Calendar years

welllllll..... lpotter never claimed a specific release date, according to cyrus the trolltech site did. I think the thing that got the deadline idea going may have been trooltech's website and the title of the post (before 2005)..  It isn't like it's a big deal or anything, but 2004 is over. We'll all be happy to see what they have done when it is done, of course.

While I know that there is not a fixed release date for a Zaurus ROM, I'm wondering if anyone (lpotter?) has any idea when one might be available.

I've managed to compile and run Qtopia 2.1 on my C760, though my build is not perfect - non-working touchscreen and slow performance. Even so, I like what I see. I'm curious to find out if a proper Zaurus build would run fast enough to consider switching to.

The slowness comes from the lack of w100 hardware accelleration. No one outside Sharp has access to this accellerated Qt/Embedded library, not even TrollTech. (Or did that change recently, lorn?)

the kernel from tetsu seems to be claiming w100 acceleration.

I wonder about the w100 acceleration too. Hopefully we wont get a ROM full of features, not really usable

unfortunately, no, this has not changed yet. I will keep pushing for this.

Update on the rom... I have been set back a bit, as my drive failed (and among other things such as backups for this drive). So it will be a bit longer, I am afraid.
