My apologies as I have not kept up with all the discussions on the forum in
a while.  Part of it was due to a severe motorcycle accident.  What I have
been doing is going into maemo.org and monitoring the applications that are
there to see if the applications I use regularly are available for 2008.
So, before I take the plunge and upgrade, I thought I'd put a list out and
try to identify if the existing applications are compatible with 2008, if
they're just not listed in the catalog, or if they are just not compatible
and I have to find something else or stay with 2007.  Here's the list (it's


.         GPE Calendar, GPE Todo, GPE Contacts (most important as I use
these every day)

.         X11VNC (used for displaying my N800 onto my desktop)

.         Xterm (critical as I have my backup scripts that are run from

.         Gnumeric (I have a lot of workarounds in gnumeric so this is also
very important)

.         Simple launcher

.         Gainroot

.         Maemo Krypt (least important)


And, lastly, for the applications that require no changes, e.g. no new
binaries, will they show up after I upgrade or do I have to re-install them?


In advance - thanks! And, again, my apologies.
