Yes, e17 libraries and "files" are updated, when there are any. The packages have not been updated for some time. The e17 packages are like any others in the repositories. If there are updates available, you can apply them to your system, as you would any other packages.
I have a problem with the scale module. Actually, it is not working. It does nothing when it is loaded. I am familiar with the way it works and I have activated it in Bodhi 1.4, so the problem must be in the files which are in the repo, not E17 original repos.
"It is not working" and "It does nothing" are not really descriptions. What have you tried to make it work?
