    Hi guys,

    I've been using CHDK for my Canon P&S camera's for a while now.  I've been able to capture some amazing images using CHDK.  It has opened up a world of possibilities for me and now I have acquired a Canon EOS Rebel XS the model number is as follows:  Canon Rebel XS DS126191

    I've found it hard to find the exact model of my camera but based on what I"m seeing on the forums it looks like it is a 1000D, is this correct?

    If so, then I am running firmware version 1.0.3, should I go ahead and upgrade to 1.0.5 or hold off? 

    There are tons of threads open in regards to to this camera so I guess my first question is, "Where do we stand in regards to a CHDK release for this camera?" 

    I know the 300D was "hacked" but was using a DIGIC I and an x86 architecture OS.  I guess this one is using a DIGIC III and runs DryOS?  I'm still learning about camera firmware and development.  I've worked in the IT field as a Network/Systems Administrator for a number of years now and I hope to get up to speed on what's going on here and offer any help that I can.

    If there is anything I can do to help or speed up the development of CHDK for this model please let me know. 

    Otherwise, any answers to the questions I have above would be much appreciated....

    Thanks guys and I look forward to speaking with you all in the forums.
