Pretty much, yeah. I doubt we will upgrade to anything API incompatible for 1.0.

We are based on Fedora 7, so the images contains all the patches in F7
rpms. We apply a patch to totem to get the mozilla plugin to work with
xulrunner 1.9 alpha6 (we will have to redo that patch as soon we move
to alpha7 though). Other than that I can't remember anything else
significant for sugar/activities.
