gPodder's sister project Panucci is being ported to MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan on the Nokia N950. The port is done by Panucci's current maintainer, Jens Persson (xerxes2). He announced the first progress on the project today:
And as you shouldn't make promises you can't keep, as Frank Martin's fourth rule, I got right to it and Panucci already runs pretty well on Harmattan. Some small things to fix but nothing major. I'll also pick up a headset to fix the bluetooth implementation which is missing now. The QML version will probably/hopefully work very well on Fremantle too. It will (probably) never support as many features as the GTK one as I don't got an N900 to fix stuff but it should work reasonably well.
Jens has posted a video on YouTube of the project's current status, and a short overview:
If you didn't know, Panucci is a resuming audiobook and podcast player, and can be used on Maemo and on the (Linux) Desktop to provide resuming functionality of your audio podcasts. Panucci also plays well together with gPodder to synchronize the playback status of audio files, so gPodder can track your playback progress. With dedicated seek buttons, Panucci is very well suited for listening to podcasts and seeking through long pieces of spoken audio.
