Due to the update on Java.net and various updates going around some news got lost a bit in the past couple of days. Most importantly, we just released LWUIT 1.2.1 which is a bug fix release that addresses some of the issues in the current drop mostly in the Ant task which we have no other way of delivering (since it isn't yet open source).
Another thing that was probably lost is a release of our internal BlackBerry port of LWUIT, based on many fixes from Thorsten Schemm it is still not as mature as his LWUIT-incubator port neither in terms of usage or in terms of stability/functionality. We are working to converge the best approaches from both ports and create a single functional port in the long run.
We will now set our attention towards 1.3, we already have some features planned and we are considering some other ideas. I would personally like to remove some deprecated and no longer supported API's to reduce the size of LWUIT, I already started a bit in that direction and got approximately 15kb less.
