The latest Maemo version is 0.5.1732 and it is available from the openrepos site.
qgvdial on the maemo repositories has not been updated.
I've yet to figure out how to do that correctly.

Would it be possible to update the Sailfish build as well?

OK, downloaded latest 0.5.1732 from openrepos.net site. Install fails on N900 - asking for applauncherd-launcher; libqtcore4(>=4.7.4-git20110517); libqtgui4(>=4.7.4-git20110517).

Did I miss a step somewhere?

OK, resolved by enabling Extras-Devel repository and running "apt-get -f install" from a root terminal to resolve unmet dependencies. Package qgvdial 0.5.1732 now installs without any further problems.

Next hitch is that there is no application in the master list, so cannot create Desktop shortcut. Anyone can provide the work-a-round for this kind of issue? The application does show up in the app-manager as a candidate for un-installation, if desired.
Thanks for any help that you can provide. So close and yet still so far ...

To create the "qgvdial.desktop" application launcher file do the following;

1) Open "X Terminal" application.
2) Issue command "sudo gainroot" to switch to "root" user.
3) Issue command to edit "qgvdial.desktop" file;

vim /usr/share/applications/hildon/qgvdial.desktop

4) Add the following lines to the file, and save:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application
Name=qgvdial
Exec=/opt/qgvdial/bin/qgvdial
Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/80x80/apps/qgvdial80.png
Terminal=false

The application now shows up in the master apps list. Now you can create a Desktop short-cut icon from it.

Alternatively, the lines could be created on an external text editor, stored to the N900 "Documents" directory in "File manager" in some folder. At this point you could then use "X Terminal" application and then enter "root" terminal mode as above. Now copy the file from the "File manager" saved location to the "/usr/share/applications/hildon/" location.
