I have got an update notification on my jolla1, but there is no official statement or Update version history in the release notes of 3.1.0 Seitseminen saying as an OTA update was released to all subscribers. FYI, i have not opted for Early access to Sailfish OS releases. Can someone confirm this !

My Jolla 1 is running as signed up to EA, but I seem to remember this happening previously due to administrative error and will try to find previous post when I've got a bit of time.

@venki, I understand your concern. I was also unsure whether I should install 3.1.0 onto my J1 as I (as well as you) did not see this version being publicly declared stable.

Anyway, I am running 3.1.0 on my J1 for about a fortnight now and I see all those small regressions discussed here, like the missing volume indication. On top of that, some software (from OpenRepos) is still not compatible with 3.1.0. On my device, ssh access seems broken, but I'm not sure whether it's just me or the OS.

Having written that, I don't feel Seitseminen is worse than other releases in terms of bugs and regressions. Just the usual dose of things to swallow :-)

I do not know how will run on the Jolla 1. On the Xperia Xa2 there are still plenty of bugs. Although it is out of EA. I'm a new sailfish user. But I had to learn to deal with "some" limitations and bugs. (I'm ready to swallow these things as I have not given up hope yet. ;) )

If you depend on @coderus personal ringtones, don't do it. See [] JP1:Phone app: UI doesn't show up for about 20 s [answered].

He meant that is out of the EA phase, so it's available for all, not only the EA subscribers. My Jolla runs Seitseminen perfectly fine.

NobodyInPerson ( 2019-08-09 09:31:29 +0300 )edit

then why there is no official release statement in the release notes of 3.1.0 Seitseminen and what about the issues logged against this update ?

venki ( 2019-08-09 09:52:57 +0300 )edit

@bocephus where did you get that information??? its officially EA as of today!

Blog tells that it's released officially. I can't comment on safety on Jolla 1 but I see some improvement on XA2.
