The Symbian Foundation (a not-for-profit group created by Nokia) has today announced that the entirety of the Symbian OS source code is now available for free under the Eclipse license. The foundation states that Symbian's move from proprietary to open-source represents the largest such move in software history. According to ZDNet the source code is comprised of 108 packages.
The Foundation's original goal was to have all of Symbian open source by mid-2010. This announcement is very much ahead of schedule, and kudos to the Foundation for that. The latest version of the OS, Symbian^3, is expected to hit sometime during the first quarter of the year. We should get our first glimpse of the new Symbian user interface at that time as well.
