Hildon desktop portrait mode for Nokia N900 – Maemo

A work in progress for the Hildon desktop but now in portrait mode on the Maemo based Nokia N900.
Main features of this modified hildon-desktop are:

– auto-rotation of the desktop
– widgets also rotate
– widget postion is stored separately for portrait and landscape mode
– when you enter portrait mode for the first time, you will probably have to arrange widgets in the way you like it
– each widget added to portrait mode is available also in landscape and vice versa.
– almost forgot about desktop edit mode in portrait

If you found a bug, please report it here.
Any suggestions and feedback welcome!

Package is based on the latest cssu hildon-desktop package, which means new features like:
– improved task navigator by freemangordon
– do not change from portrait to landscape when device lies on a table by freemangordon
– added configurable saturation for blurless by David Fries
– included transitions.ini in deb configfile to retain user settings by David Fries
