Quick nmea_info update [Aug. 6th, 2007|09:27 pm]
First up, Python 1.4.0 compatability. Eddi has kindly produced a sis file for LocationRequestor that's compatible with the new Python 1.4.0, you can download that here.

Secondly, with Python 1.4.0, the main Python sis file (but not the scripting shell) is signed by Nokia. Annoyingly, they haven't signed it with the Location permissions, so you'll still need to re-sign with your dev cert if you want to use the internal gps (no need to re-sign for just bluetooth). However, the update also changed the UID of Python, which means the old nmea sis files gave a warning about Python being missing. So I've built new versions of the nmea sis files (same version # though), which won't give that warning on 1.4 (but will do on the old 1.3.x Python)

I've also updated my previous post, in case anyone's checking back on that.

Oh, and one other thing I've discovered. The assisted-gps feature in the new (v12) N95 firmware really does make a difference. I've been getting dramatically quicker fixes with it enabled :)
