Here's the latest list of activities I came up that are different from
the G1G1 available versions:
Write-61 (G1G1 is at 60) – No .xo bundle provided used git to get:
sudo yum install git
git clone git://git.sugarlabs.org/write/mainline.git write
Browse-103 (G1G1 is at 101) – No .xo bundle provided used git to get:
git clone git://git.sugarlabs.org/browse/mainline.git browse
Calculate-28 (G1G1 is at 25)
Chat-62 (G1G1 is at 48)
Read-63 (G1G1 is at 52)
Etoys-99 (G1G1 is at 94)
TurtleArt-24 (G1G1 was 10)
Terminal-21 (G1G1 is at 18)

Just for others to be aware, in joyride 2631 software update from the
control panel does not actually install activities (goes through the
motions but nothing gets installed), so make sure you already have
most of what you need, or wget and sugar-install-bundle them after
(don't rely on browse unless you have the new joyride version as it
doesn't launch under joyride 2631):
