New Early Access release has been made available!

Release notes


Changelog

Main highlights include:
  • Qt 5.6 (!)
  • Bluez5 (JollaC/Intex Aqua Fish only, not yet enabled by default)
  • Built in VPN support with GUI (in beta)
  • Support for ARM 64bit
  • Text selection in browser
  • Facebook microblog and notifications removed, as Facebook will eliminate this functionality from public API by the next month
  • Annotation feature for PDF documents
  • QML live coding support for the SDK
  • Setting for changing font size in the OS (normal/large/huge)

Release history:
  1. 2017-02-08: 2.1.0.9 Early access release

It hasn't shown up on my device yet, but I am looking forward to first hand experience from others - this is one of the biggest releases SailfishOS has ever seen so I expect some bugs to be present at this stage.

EDIT: Added Text selection feature mention, thanks to the heads up from Feathers McGraw. I missed that one.

Text selection in the browser! That should make a lot of people happy (less grumpy, at least!)

Turns out the tablet has only 2,3GB system memory (who thought that was a good idea?), of which 1,9GB is in use. Trying to download the system update tells me I need 500MB free space. What can I do? Looking for this problem on TJC only gives me someone with a Turing phone who had the same problem and bricked his device trying to fix it.

I had the same problem on JollaC with the last update (2.0.5) - had to remove almost all apps (including AlienDalvik) to be able to proceed. As each update is bigger and bigger, this is bound to get worse over time.

I haven't seen any reports of this kind on TJC, but I will report it if it happens with this update as well.

Wow, no way I'm doing that. I've made a post, feel free to edit it with more information: https://together.jolla.com/question/...t-using-btrfs/

I'm not usually updating my SDK directly, so… does anyone know how soon after the OS the (early access) binaries of the new SDKs are usually released? Currently, https://sailfishos.org/wiki/Applicat...K_Early_Access and http://releases.sailfishos.org/sdk/installers/ only point to 1611, which is to be expected, but I really want to check that out.


edit: http://releases.sailfishos.org/sdk/installers/1701/
