To clear things up: I am new to the openmoko development world and have
no further informational background on the history of openmoko development.

Could it be that from Om2008.8 on that Qtopia (or QtExtended for that
matter) is being used as the supported frontend?

Do the daily builds from

only contain Qtopia? Is the Openmoko-UI discontinued?

It would be nice to get any feedback on this, as I am going to develop
an application which should be running on the current version of the phone.

Thanks in advance,
