This is only true if you disregard maemo installation instructions -- at
least I have not found the recommended 0.9.8 versions available at the
scratchbox.org repository.

I wonder if there are any real problems with maemo and scratchbox 1.0.x?
I haven't seen any so far... If no-one comes up with horror stories
about using 1.0 for maemo development, maybe the recommendation could be
upgraded -- it would make installation easier (damping the culture shock
for new developers) and give everyone access to the new features*.

How about it?
