Well, I had enough with the battery drain introduced with Saimaa. My life is limited in between wall power sockets. I can't go anywhere for more than 4 hours, because the phone is shutting it self down. Basically, my Jolla is now a land line phone! The only way to extend the battery life is to turn mobile internet off, which turns Jolla into a overpriced 3310! Where is the next update!?!?!?!?!?!?!

no battery drain here

Same here, no battery drain - I did have to disable Sync contacts from the Google account, that initially caused a huge drain but after that no probs.

I know that the drain is not plaguing everyone! ;)

Contrary, battery life got better with Saimaa. At least for me. Maybe you should try a factory reset.

why do you think 2.1 will drain battery less?

The update is set to become available for early-adopters by week 3, 2016.

They haven't made any further specific comments about it though.

Any site with this kind of info or just irc logs?

@strobovalo, this new information only came today in the community meeting, afaik not published anywhere else yet. It came from Marko Saukko, chief engineer at Jolla.

We are preparing currently the 2.0.1.x release.
If no blockers in final testing found we should be able to release it to early access next week.

I think they don't want to publish such info more publicly or "officially", because there could always be delays, and they don't want to get hopes too high and then disappoint users...

I understand but all sites that i know are full of old news, i just want to know any good site with fresh news.

Thank you.

@strobovalo You just read it here. is the most up-to-date source of info I can think of at the moment. That they probably will release a new version next week isn't exactly "news", it's a declaration of intent. Evil minded people have translated such things into "promises" in the past and there was an uproar each time the intended timeline needed to be changed... so you probably will never find such information in the official channels again in the future. Official news sites will mention the update once it#s really out.

This seems to be a known issue and will most likely be dealt with in a later update:

Google contact sync may sometimes hang up and drain the battery
