Sorry I did read that post :(

Lately I received some very useful patches, menu implementation, partial bluetooth, etc which I'm very grateful.
Sadly we are ONLY two which are *committed* to this project: me and you (Ray) !

* Qt framework
- most of ( maybe all ) tests and benchmarks must pass ! Is very useful to check any new patches.
- finish style plugin (look&feel).
- finish menus implementation, menu bar was pushed to alpha4 branch, it remains context menu.
* QtMobility needs more love:
- contacts must be rewritten, current implementation it crashes on my phone with 150+ contacts.
- proper camera support.
- multimedia must have a better implementation.
- other things which I can't remember now, please check current open issues

I manage to update QtCreator, it seems to work ok, I'll push today latest work on 2.5 branch !
