Yep, Moteiv does not exist anymore, they became Sentilla and have their 
own Java-based system now. The drivers were never really ported to 
TinyOS 2.x. The port that I did works with TinyOS 2.x but does not take 
into account the recommended structures of the modules.

Some people have in the past expressed an intend to extend my port and 
include other sensors, but I have no idea what the state of such work 
is. It's not extremely difficult to make the drivers work with TinyOS 
2.x so you could modify the other drivers yourself.

The sensirion and other sensors that are already optional with the Tmote 
Sky are not included with the Tmote Invent (if you look at the board you 
can see that the space on the PCB is not occupied).

You can find the documentation on Tmote Sky and Tmote Invent here:

The Tmote Sky Datasheet and the Tmote Invent User Guide contain the
