Which is almost completly available from Debian testing since some
days ago :) I just uploaded a version of fso-frameworkd fixing the
RC bugs, so that it can transition to testing. This should result in
the transition of the remaining SHR packages phoneuid and phoneui-apps.

So wheezy will come with the complete SHR UI!

For complete GTAxx support only the GTA0[12] kernel is missing.
GTA04 should be supported by linux-image-omap on armhf in the future
(its board code is missing mainline and device tree support is not
yet ready).

Actually the enlightenment libraries are currently up to date. There
are newer snapshots available, but no newer releases. The problem
is, that there are no stable releases of elementary so far and its
latest snapshot needs features in the base libraries, which are not
part of the released versions.
