Well, this is a question I've meant to ask Quim for a while now, so here 
is my opportunity. I've asked it here before without an answer, but some 
threads on ITT have brought it back to light recently.

Despite the disparaging remarks by the Maemo team when OS2008HE came out 
("end-of-the-line", "too much for the poor beast" etc.), quite a few 
people (including me) are satisfied with it breathing a new life into 
their old 770. Maemo Mapper in particular, a rare example of commitment 
to maintaining a native maemo app on all NIT platforms, works just fine 
on it.

The problem we are having now is that some recent apps, or their Diablo 
upgrades, fail to install or run, although they could be really useful 
on a home-bound 770 : to name a few, Canola, Maemo remote (which also 
uses EFL), or liqbase...

So, before the Fremantle wave definitely buries the 770 platform (and 
maybe the N8x0 too), it would be really good to see a final update 
bringing the main Diablo improvements to OS2008HE, so that it can still 
run the latest relevant apps.

Is there any chance this will happen ?
