actually jolla should test the os for every pre-update to ensure good usage of the os to the sailors....

they must use it as a regular device. and use all the features. they'll come to know the bigs and fix it then and there..

I'm pretty sure that's what already happens.

@Ghost: They made 13 versions of the current "opt-in"-update. What do you think they did between each of these versions? Why do you believe they thought it was necessary to build yet another one... and another one...? Maybe they do test after all?

Please read release-note before using Uitukka which is still a testing and NOT final version: https://together.jolla.com/question/59874/release-notes-opt-in-upgrade-to-software-version-11038-uitukka/

From my experience, Jolla has been taken internal testing very serious - which also is causing delays with update Nr 9 (and that's good this way),

And you know that they don't use it themselves?

A pre-release / beta / whatever you want to call it of a software product is by it's very nature not going to be 100% stable and without bugs. It's not ready and meant for mass consumption, but released to get feedback from a larger group of users than just the devs themselves - hence the opt-in nature of the update.

At least that's how it ought to be.
