No More Mobile Device Browser Updates...

So the WURFL group became Scentia Mobile, and along with the change eventually followed stricter and stricter licensing. As it stands now, there's no way to use the newer versions of the WURFL xml file in the public sphere, outside of using Scientia-provided APIs.

In other words mobile device browser cannot be updated using new official WURFL data.

I'd hoped that Luca and the Scientia people would've protected their GPL community at the very least given the project's community-sourced roots. Alas, there's money to be made in all of this and principles are always the first thing to go.
