GNOME Mobile and Embedded Initiative launched

Filed under
Software

The GNOME Foundation is scheduled to announce the GNOME Mobile and Embedded Initiative (GMAE) today at the Embedded Linux Conference in Santa Clara, Calif. The initiative is aimed at bolstering GNOME usage as an embedded and mobile development platform. Founding members include open source organizations and commercial interests such as ACCESS, Canonical, Intel, Debian, Nokia, Red Hat, Fluendo, the Linux Foundation, and Maemo.

The initiative has been in development since last year, says GNOME Foundation board member Jeff Waugh. GNOME participants got together to discuss a "more formalized community approach to GNOME mobile and embedded technologies" at the GUADEC conference in July.

Since the first meeting, Waugh says that the initiative has "brought together an incredible team."
