Two Linux development groups, the LiMo Foundation and GNOME Foundation have announced a key partnership with the objective of collaborating on open source innovation. Starting immediately, LiMo Foundation will become a member of GNOME Foundation's Advisory Board and GNOME Foundation will become an Industry Liaison Partner for LiMo Foundation. This development represents a natural formalization founded upon the significant use of GNOME Mobile software components within Release 2 and Release 3 of the LiMo Platform.
The LiMo Platform is a Linux based mobile device platform, including multiple components from GNOME Mobile project such as Glib, GTK+, D-Bus, GStreamer and BlueZ, amongst others.
"The objective of GNOME Mobile is to provide a platform for the next stage of client computing. We are committed to bringing the quality and freedom of GNOME to users on mobile platforms," said Stormy Peters, Executive Director of GNOME Foundation. "We are excited to work with commercial partners like the LiMo Foundation to ensure that GNOME Mobile technologies are available on mobile and connected devices incorporating the LiMo platform."
