QuickConnect Porting and Development schedule

I recently got a request for information regarding the planned development and porting of QuickConnect and thought it should be shared here as well.

I am particularly excited about the ad hoc networking.  It will be great when an iPhone, an Android phone, a Linux based phone, macs, linux machines and even PC’s can discover each other and not need to care what the other device/machine is.  Then an application can be anywhere and interoperate with versions of itself or other services on any of the platforms.  And the applications can be written in JavaScript on all of the platforms.  Wow.

The current porting situation is as follows:

  • iPhone: release 1.1.1 available 1.1.2 next few days 1.5 beta in next few days as well
  • Android: beta 1.0 available today if all goes well
  • Mac: 1.0 beta 1 is currently shipping
  • LinuxQT: beta 1.0 in a week or so
  • MobileQT: about two weeks after LinuxQT beta
  • Microsoft porting will happen after the MobileQT port is nearing completion.

The iPhone 1.1.2 release will include access from JavaScript to:

  • device information – OS, device type, UID
  • The iPhone 1.5 beta 1 release will include access from JavaScript to:
  • ad hoc networking and service discovery (Bonjour Networking)

The iPhone 1.5 beta 2 release will include access from JavaScript to:

  • Raw socket networking (access via the synch cable)

    Hello,
    I discovered QuickConnect through Fred Grott’s blog (http://www.jroller.com/shareme) two days ago, and my interest is growing every minute.
    Where can I get the software/betas?

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Oh, I just found the link to the QuickConnect Wiki 4-5 articles below in your blog.
    Maybe you should add the Wiki link to your blog’s right bar preferred links.

    Big Thanks anyway, I’ll subscribe to your RSS watching QuickConnect news.
