Sailfish SDK version 2.4

Today (Dec 2nd) at 14:00 UTC we published new installers (https://sailfishos.org/wiki/Application_SDK#Latest_SDK_Release) and repositories of the Sailfish SDK to all users. This SDK release is called 2.4 and it improves support for connecting devices running the upcoming Sailfish OS release 3.2.1 and later.

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

The latest Emulator and Build Targets remain on the same level, matching the Sailfish OS release (Torronsuo)

Emulators and Build Targets for several older Sailfish OS releases remain available.

Couple of things you should be aware of:

  • Git is a prerequisite for the Sailfish SDK on Windows - you can get Git from https://git-scm.com/download/win if it is not already installed on your workstation.
  • 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 at https://sailfishos.org/wiki/Application_SDK_Known_Issues.

Sailfish SDK 2.4

SDK IDE (Qt Creator)

  • When adding a Sailfish OS device, prerequisites for proper Sailfish SDK operation are now checked more thoroughly and automatically corrected if needed
    • Existing device configurations are left intact. If you have a device configured inside Qt Creator and you upgrade the device to the upcoming Sailfish OS release 3.2.1 or later, you need to (remove and) add the device in Qt Creator options again.

Happy hacking,

Jolla SDK Team

how is it that they released it before OS release? I was under an impression that they usualy do it other way around

@virgi26: maybe one reason

at least I've found a.workaround using Git...

@martyone: on the other hand, installing Git was.not enough, nin folder had to be added into.PATH manually
