Please do not post links if you do not know what their content is about. These reform did not change anything for the word „schließen“, it is still correct with „ß“ and wrong with „ss“ (at least for de_DE). You can check it e.g. here.

@vattuvarg you forgot the "un" in front of the "related"... because the link is in no relation to the topic

The above link specifies when "ß" should be used. It does not contradict the topic, but relates to it.

@vattuvarg if you have nothing of value to contribute you always have the option to just not post anything.

related question: is there "ß" on the keyboard in SailFish OS. I am missing this since MeeGo already. Please add this symbol, because we can not write really grammatically correct text messages without it.

long press s [if in lower case] and there is the ß

sure we could think about the capital ß [ẞ] which is missing.

what capital ß, there is no such thing. Your first answer hit the spot. Thanks
