Symbian websites to shut down on December 17

The Symbian Foundation will be transitioning to a licensing body and as a result, a number of Symbian websites will be shutting down on 17th December 2010.

Below are the websites that are affected:

  • www.symbian.org, www.symbian.org/cn, www.symbian.org/jp
  • developer.symbian.org, developer.symbian.org/cn, developer.symbian.org/jp, kernel.symbian.org
  • horizon.symbian.org
  • ideas.symbian.org
  • blog.symbian.org, blogcn.symbian.org, blogjp.symbian.org

On its wiki, the Symbian Foundation also announced that the source code, kits, bug database and reference documentation are available for developers upon request. Due to the size of the data available, Symbian has imposed a slight delay on the availability of its documentation and code, all of which will be obtainable on January 31 via USB key or DVD for a small fee.

The @Symbian Twitter feed and the Symbian.org fan page on Facebook are also likely to be discontinued.

Symbian Signed will continue to operate, as will Symbian communities hosted outside the Symbian Foundation.
