Gil,  I thought the last release supported updating the OS without having to
re-install all the apps.

Subject: maemo 3.2 Bora released with minor updates

Maemo 3.2 Bora [1] consists of a minor release based on the Nokia
Internet Tablet OS 2007 edition, feature upgrade [2]. It is fully
compatible with the previous 3.x versions. Upgrading to this version is
highly recommended in order to get the latest stable code and bugfixes.
Developers using maemo 3.1 SDK only need to upgrade their packages, the
rest have to install maemo 3.1 and then upgrade. Check the full release
notes [3] for more detailed information and instructions.

This is the last maemo 3.x release, now development is focusing on maemo
4.0 Chinook. Developers can follow the latest open development through
the maemo Sardine [4] unstable distribution.

The maemo 3.2 Bora SDK contains the following components:

      * Bora repositories with updated maemo 3.2 packages.
      * Updated Scratchbox installer (installs Scratchbox Apophis R4)
      * Updated maemo installer (installs maemo 3.1 as a base).
      * Nokia EUSA binaries installer in self-extracting archive.

If no SDK is installed the developer should first install the maemo 3.1
as a base SDK with the provided script and then do the "dist-upgrade".
See the INSTALL.TXT [5] file for details.
