Thank you Jolla for the last update My XA2 works very well. I'm just wondering what does mean generic in this perspective in release

Not changing or not under development? :( :(


Under development and the options shall be realized in the next updates? :) :)

Thank you for a clarification. I have went through my dictionary of foreign words without any success?????

You are asking the meaning of the word 'generic'?

meaning in the context of the subtitle "Known issues - generic";

...without distinctive qualities or details

Seems like your dictionary is pretty useless, you could have Googled this information.

Yes, just simply words only. But shall these objects ever be materialised or come true for us users / buyers of SFOS Xperia X, XA2 or 10 smart phones? Or are they only meanless empty words as you litterally referred to? My dictionary of foreign words did not explain that? Coming true or just hands washing again?

Seems like you are slowly getting the gist of wording used here on TJC; ......"Free beer tomorrow!" but tomorrow when you ask, it will still be "free beer tomorrow"

I've been here five/six years, many things said never come to fruition or simply fall silently into Room 101....never to see the light of day ever again

I personally accept that and above all else, neither you or I dictate financially to what goes on in the minds of Jolla HQ.

Nothing is what it seems, neither is it anything else.

I assume you are referring to the word "generic" from the Known issues - generic section of the Release notes for 3.3.0 Rokua?

Here, the generic issues are the ones that can affect all devices running this version of Sailfish OS (that is, general, non-specific issues).

However, the next sections are about known issues specific to particular devices (the one about Xperia XA2 may interest you).

Any of these issues may or may not be resolved in a future release. This list is merely an indication that these issues are already known, but will not be solved in the current release.

Thank you for saying how the things are and will be. Thus we are again waiting for some magic / unexisting actions to happen.
