Yes we are expecting the next RC to be available this weekend together with SDK etc.

Among the new features are (which haven't been discussed before):
 - Configuration of the right stylus/mouse button, it can be press and hold (as it is today as standard), a modifier key and stylus click.
 - Better and updated X server with better rotation
 - Hopefully the "big fonts" in PDA mode is fixed too.
 - NTPD support
 - Timezones
 - Support for the CE-RH1 remote control (thanx to http://www.Trisoft.de for donating one for testing)


Futhermore we expect the pdaX86 to be released soon after too - which allows you to run the pdaXrom system on you regular pc - for developers this makes developing appliactions etc. a lot easier.

Developers: Don't worry no need to recompile anything. If you program worked under RC5 it works under RC7 too - but the new SDK adds some new features.
Also keep you pants on recompiling to many different programs - the next release will include an even wider spectrum of "precompiled" programs, like: VLC, Mplayer, Firefox 1.0, Thunderbird 0.9 etc. :-)

Ohhh - been out drinking yesterday and therefore i haven't replyed yet..

Sorry no SL-6000 yet - but it won't be long.

Abiword is included - Gnumeric isn't preinstalled due to its huge size - but it works if you install it.

The root partion can be modified from installer - when we get the time we will rewrite many of the installer stuff and make "guides" on the following:
- Installing pdaXrom
- Setting up (GPRS) bluetooth mobile phone internet connection
- Setting up (wireless) internet connection using CF card
