Gammu+ 0.38 is out. I have added configure script, which can enable Bluez AFTER USER ACTION. You have written many times, that source after patching is GPL2 licensed. Please note, that in my opinion it doesn't break GPL2 - if you will have patched source, you can remove Bluez driver (yes, this can be very easy separated) and release source under other license:

 "If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, 
 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works 
 in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those 
 sections when you distribute them as separate works"

You can find also some other explanations, that this is OK. My target is not breaking this license. If this is done, I will try to fix it ASAP.

As you notified, I have removed "But tracker" sheet - too many people though, that Gammu+ project here was connected with Gammu. I remind: for Gammu please use bugs.cihar.com

I was also playing last times with various OS. Debian, latest Mandriva, Server 2008, a little Vista. I'm updating my page "100 reasons why you shouldn't touch Vista". I'm meantime I found very big articles about it on WikiPedia and in other places.

On the end I will repeat some older things: People are asking me about help, but I don't have too much motivation for it. Gammu+ could be very good step ahead, but nobody is interested in help (bug reporting, donating and so on) and I don't use even daily Nokia phone now. wxWidgets weren't also too good choice. I'm not sure in 100%, what next. As you can see from my older blog entries, I'm thinking about buying smartphone.
