I'm afraid no new documentation was created recently. But see below.

I would advice to make it two layer -- a daemon that communicates with
the phone and the GUI itself. They should communicate with each other
using some well known protocol (DBUS?). That will allow also other
applications (like Kontact, that would need patching in such case) to
communicate with the phone at the same time.

I'm willing to help you. Mainly in two areas (beacause my GUI skills
sucks). Help/implement the daemon that communicates with the phone.
Write the developer documentation -- just tell me with which
functionality you would like to start. I will prepare some general
documentation, but then I'd like to documentate the interface to the
functional areas.

take care,
