Sailfish SDK 2.0

Today (Mar 28th) at 12:00 UTC we published new installers and repositories of the Sailfish SDK 2.0 to all users. At first it was released for early access users on Mar 25th.

The SDK release is called 2.0. It is the first stable version of the SDK, and it enables development for Sailfish OS release 3.0.2.

If you have an older beta release of the SDK, you should see an update notification in the Sailfish SDK.

The latest Emulator and Build Targets match Sailfish OS Release (Oulanka)

Emulators and Build Targets for several older Sailfish OS releases remain available. Please see below for detailed information of the changes.

A couple of things you should be aware of:

  • As before, in this update the Build Engine, Emulator and Targets are reinstalled so you will lose all changes you may have made in those - However, if your application packaging is done correctly, rebuilding your projects should reinstall the packages you have been using.
  • Any customization done to SDK (adding new package repositories, adding custom Targets, additional source paths) will be removed during the installation process so make your own backup of those before starting the update.
  • If you import existing projects made with a previous version of the SDK, make sure to select the correct kit in the project configuration step. Both ARM and i486 kits are available.
  • Package repository contents have been updated and consequently using a previous SDK version with these package repositories is not supported.
  • For more information, please see the Application SDK known issues list.

Great Jolla. Testing next week. I missed the 1.x beta version, but It seem to be the QT creator from QT Company.

@tortoisedoc that will be released with Sailfish OS 3.0.3, if you mean your change to scratchbox2. Also such a change is not likely to be listed here and instead, you will find it in the full OS changelog.
