Checking the updatestatus, it would be nice to see, apart from the information that my device is up to date, the scheduled date for the next update.

A question should not be disguised as information, so I edited the headline.

and then please revert it back as it is a feature request to show a scheduled date in settings...

You already know its roughly monthly. I don't think they can get more specific than that because of Q&A and other factors that might influence the release date.

It also feels like having 11 to 12 little christmas moments a year :D Joke aside, i like Jollas priorisation of "getting things done" over teasing/informing the public.

Nevertheless, having a simply formatted (and updated) list of items implemented in the next release would be good. The OpenBSD Plus page is a good example.

Excellent; I haven't been aware of this.

Having read the discussion linked by ApB (https://lists.sailfishos.org/pipermail/devel/2014-May/004129.html): I think Jolla should periodically publish 2 lists of main subjects worked on currently:

  • Bugs
  • Features

The position within the list should indicate when it is expected to appear within the next monthly updates, i.e. the top entries are more likely to find their way into the next update. However, Jolla should not indicate that the subject is expected to appear within any specific update. This way, we see that something is worked on (and with what priority; although: list sequence may not be identical with priority – a certain subject may take a lot of time and not make it into the next update although it may have top priority), but Jolla does not "commit" itself to any time-line.

when can we expect next update? If it will bring new feature? Last update only had bug fixes.

Any insider info?

@coderus are you from Russia?
Sailfish is betting heavy on Russia. As Russian government have opted sailfish as official android alternative. Other thing happened is MegaFon have launched VoLte services in Moscow and planning to expand it to country wide. In these situation dont you thinks Jolla should prepare in advance. Here in India this became limitation for sailfish based phone due to launch of IP only network.
