Handheld computing has progressed, and Palm is no longer the near-monopolist of the market. We've decided to rename our Palm section and welcome a greater variety of mobile computing software.
When we began accepting such software in our database 2.5 years ago, the
computer you carried in your hand was probably a PDA and almost
certainly ran PalmOS. Today, it's as likely that your pocket is filled
by a camera which is also a cellphone. Or a phone which is also a PDA.
Or a GPS machine which is also an 802.11b wireless networking device.
Or an MP3 player which is also a phone and a camera and a PDA and a
Dictaphone and a GameBoy emulator and a toothpick. It may run PalmOS or
Linux or SymbianOS or another up-and-coming embedded system.
Rather than try to keep up with all the changes to come, we've decided
to just rename palm.freshmeat.net to handhelds.freshmeat.net and
welcome software written for all varieties of mobile computing devices
and the various operating systems that power them. The only exception
we'll make is that we've decided to continue to decline applications
written for Microsoft Windows, including its embedded version, WinCE.
Accepting Windows applications would overtax our resources at the moment.
We've already added these categories:

Please start submitting your favorite projects or recategorizing
projects that are already in freshmeat and belong here. If you think
there are other categories we need or if you have any other questions or
suggestions, let us know.
