[ANNOUNCE] Miniature chess game
This is the first release of Miniature for MeeGo Harmattan which is, in fact, a total restart from the Miniature project born with Maemo 5 and the N900.
Miniature won't play games yet, but it provides a fully featured user experience based on Qt Quick and a Qt backend with its foundations in place. We are looking for a new breed of testers and developers and we couldn't wait to share the good stuff that is being cooked. You can find screenshots and more at http://wiki.maemo.org/Miniature
