MeeGo Smart TV is setting the new standard for Smart TV, STB and Media Centre, etc. MeeGo Smart TV is a Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) OS distribution integrating the MeeGo Core for embedded systems leveraging and extending functionality known from mobile computers, IVI and handsets into Smart TV, STB and Media Centres. Building on the MeeGo OS Base and the MeeGo OS Middleware the MeeGo Smart TV software stack enables rich Internet and multimedia experiences to consumers while offering plugin to support protected Pay TV and Live Free TV.
The Work is currently in progress and MeeGo Smart TV project is currently focussed on the Media playing and Browser for TV features. We hope to expand our feature coverage in the future with the help of your contributions.
The MeeGo Smart TV organization is composed of a Working Group and a Project Team. The Working Group is responsible for the definition of the roadmap and the MeeGo Smart TV Project Team executes the implementation through the partnering organizations using the best practices of open-source development. Through the collaboration of organizations and companies covering TV, STB, TV middleware and services, this partnership enables jump-starting product development for rapid delivery allowing adopters to concentrate on their core competencies while benefiting from this extensive know-how and the open-source assets.
For a graphical representation of the organizational structure: TBD
The Working Group is composed from the following members and roles:
The Working Group meets regularly. Information on current and past meetings can be found on .
The Project Team has members with various roles that are subject to change according to the requirements of the current projects. The number of members and roles in the Project Team is not limited and grow as the team gains momentum and takes on larger tasks.
The roadmap is always under discussion. But the important thing it that it is open and transparent - and you can contribute. The path to contribution begins on the MeeGo TV mailing list . This list is the central communication point with all the MeeGo Smart TV stakeholders participating. Through this list you can contribute ideas, code, and other resources. You will also receive support and advice as well as pointers to other resources on this list, this is where the community comes together.
The roadmap pages are the central collaboration point on laying out the future of MeeGo Smart TV. Here architecture details, system diagrams, use cases, etc. are shared.
Road Map TBD
Before any new feature is committed to the Roadmap, a feature request is created in http://bugs.meego.com.

For a Feature Request to become part of the MeeGo Smart TV release plan, it needs to clearly define the engineering requirements and have resources working on development.
More details on the long term direction and short term Release plan may be found in the TBD.
Automated weekly MeeGo SMart TV repository and image builds are available on meego.com for testing and development baselining. Each build has a build version and date in its path. MeeGo Release Versioning explains the build version numbering scheme. For example 1.1.80.xx is a 1.2 Alpha build, 1.1.90.xx is a 1.2 Beta build, 1.1.99.x is a 1.2 Release Candidate, and 1.2.1 is the first release update after the final 1.2 release.
