New beta (2.0.0~beta8-maemo1) update for Canola2 just been released. Refresh your Application List on your N8x0 Internet Tablet to grab the updates (themes and C2:YouTube updates are available also).
If you use the Modest email client on your N8x0, it has a new beta (1.0-2008.15.1) update also. Again grab the update via Application Manager.
UPDATE – 7/4: Canola2 released a new plugin called Last.fm , which allows you to listen to last.fm music tracks via your Internet Tablet. It’s cool!

Canola2 has added it’s first "plugin" to the Canola player. It’s a YouTube plugin and this plugin allows you to watch YouTube videos directly in the player. It’s a cool addition to the player and works well.
Canola2 has also recently released new themes for the player. You can grab them here . I’m using the flat black theme at the moment.
Note: installation of the plugin + themes is done via the Canola2 site .

A great app for the Nokia Internet Tablet (IT) has been released, Canola 2. Unfortunately it’s not easy to get this app to install on the IT as the app uses the maemo repositories. And yes you’ve guessed it, these repositories are getting hammered again!!
Tried most of last night to install Canola 2 but had to give up after numerous attempts (i.e using Application Manager and apt-get).
But thankfully got the app installed this morning thanks to the help of itT member wolf08. He/she came up with the brilliant idea of creating their own Canola repository on his/her server. This allows users like me to download and install the app in less then 10 mins. Brilliant!
