It also contains a fix for an issue in SailfishOS, details will be disclosed after rolling out this update to everyone.

Known issues

OS update process

  • Currently, checks on available disk space happens very late during the OS upgrade process and will fail in the installation phase if the disk space is low. Normally there should be an error note asking you to free some disk space and try again, but in some marginal cases it might not be shown. Should this happen, free some disk space and try to install the OS update again.
  • OS update may fail due to some other reasons too, for example it may have installed some packages from the new release and still have something left from the old. If the device can boot up, you can try to recover by doing the following. If not, you can attempt to recover the device using the recovery mode.
    • Delete the file /home/nemo/.cache/store-client/os-info
    • Stop the store-client process (for e.g. pkill store-client)
    • Reopen Settings app, check for updates again and attempt to install the OS update again
  • We have also noted that if the OS update is attempted while there is long queue of installation of apps from the Store, the system may end up in mixed state (for e.g. select all the apps from startup wizard, and start the system update already while the apps are being installed).
    • In such cases, the OS update appears to be stalled, however it is just waiting for the installations to complete before attempting to upgrade the OS. Just wait patiently, the worst thing to do here is to reboot the device!

Other issues ##

  • Sometimes Messages and Phone app show black active covers.
  • calDAV and cardDAV services are in experimental stage. We have made some improvements with this update, however you may still face issues with certain service providers. Do report it in t.j.c. We'll take a look and try to sort it out.
  • Deleting photo from Camera roll may also delete the previous photo. If camera reel's pulley menu has "Show details" greyed out - means the photo hasn't been indexed yet. Deleting photo in such state will result in previous photo deleted too. If you wait long enough (~10-15seconds) for 'Show details' to become active, only that photo will get deleted when you choose to.

One more: Now Aliendalvik running inside chroot sandbox and android apps have no more access to Sailfish filesystem

I can't confirm this. Tried to attach a file in K-9 Mail and Telegram. With both apps I could navigate the whole file system.

Confirm, only chrooted file-system available for discovery.

I agree with @Reodor. I tried couple of Android apps and they all seem to have access to the filesystem.

Valker ( 2015-02-20 15:31:02 +0200 )edit

I wish they give us options or even a config file to control how alien dalvik accesses the resources. sometimes I feel some apps deserve some resource access while some apps I just want them to run on sandbox completely cut off from the main device.. yes I even want to cut network access to few of them. I am not asking for fine grained app permissions but is there a way to control how much access we give to the android sandbox ?

I wish the browser had Firefox Sync integration. It's all documented for you guys to sync to it, and the a lot of the code is shared (it is, right?).

Right now, I use the Firefox for Android app, because it lets me keep everything nicely in sync (history, bookmarks, and open tabs). I rely on this way too much, especially history/bookmarks.

Great job so far on the browser so far though, the UI certainly needed these upgrades!

Yes, very much needed to have the Mozilla/FF sync service enabled. Isn't there a specific request for this in TJC already? Let''s vote it and keep the topic hot.. ;)

But when I go to another app, so that the covers rearrange, the cover is updated and shows as it should: Message app - updated cover

"But when I go to another app, so that the covers rearrange, the cover is updated and shows as it should" - This has always been the case. Hence the "black Cover when in first position" ;-)

App page scrolling seems faster overall. App loading times also seemed to be shorter. However as mentioned by someone else, browser jerky scrolling is back.

i do like the browser interface now and the way it handles multiple tabs. the only thing missing is text reflow.

i also like the fact that about:config now works in the browser!

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



Don't know if it's make believe, but my unit also feels a bit faster overall. I really like the new browser interface, and also the fact that this upgrade didn't force me to repeat most of my tweaks. Great upgrade all in all.

eson ( 2015-02-19 16:42:48 +0200 )edit

Browser is an improvement (jerkiness aside), but it's still way behind the community developed WebPirate and WebCat ... both are faster, display the majority of websites in correct fashion, drain less battery and have much better UI and way more features.

boip ( 2015-02-19 17:13:57 +0200 )edit

about:config was already working in

Sthocs ( 2015-02-19 17:31:43 +0200 )edit

Yes the browser is much better and faster, but the jerkiness is back when moving with finger i.e. putting finger down and sliding up or down. The content is jumping in tiny steps instead of floating smoothly. Normal scrolling by flicking / poking is smooth. https://together.jolla.com/question/34831/choppy-browser-scrolling-10420/

@soloist Well, we have some Samsung phones at work, and they behave exactly the same... I admit that it's a tiny bit annoying for me, and I'd prefer it gone, but in the end it's really no issue for me :)

Issues with Update 11 early access: I have a number of Android Applications which stopped working after update: Threes (from Humble bundle) E-Code Free Avast Mobile (the background service, lost pin code protection on applications)

Notification icons on the home screen are positioned 1/5th from the top instead of top of the screen (the same applies to the notification screen if you do not have the weather application installed)

Weather application: The notification "icon" can have different temperature/weather than what you see in the "weather overview" accessed from the weather notification "icon" and you may have even a third one if you also run the application too.

Updating weather in the weather application do not affect the weather in the notification screen nor the "weather overview". Updating the weather from the "weather overview" will not affect the app nor the notification "icon".

Having multiple weather location will have no way to access other than the primary weather in notification "icon" or the "weather overview".

The "weather overview" do not display current temperature.

The "powered by Foreca" in the "weather overview" makes the upper part of the screen to be scrollable, moving the icon up to the left top part of the screen would prevent the upper part of the screen be scrollable and give a better end user experience without loosing the partner name from the application.

There is no option to set how often the weather should be updated.

The weather icons looks quite boring, we need to be able to change themes, for example those from meecast.

Had been nice if it had been possible to slide out the weather at the home screen like you do with favourite ambiances, this could be possible both when the phone is locked and unlocked. This far I haven't cfound any use of the home screen at all.

Browser: The up and down arrows, if I hadn't pushed on it, I would never have thought what you meant.

Open tabs is slow at some times.

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



There's something glitchy about the weather app indeed, it seems it doesn't update the data correctly. see these screenshots:

Cover of Weather app and Foreca webpageNote: The weather notification shows the same temperature as the cover and the webpage.

Info in the app

It seems for some reason the "main screen" (the one shown when tapped a location inside the app doesn't update.

About the update interval of the info see this comment: refresh interval of the weather app

raketti ( 2015-02-19 20:30:37 +0200 )edit

The weather location name, city name in the notification area has a quite large font. I think it breaks with the overall design. It would be awesome if the primary location would switch to the current actual location of my phone. At least to the closes location configured.

Sören ( 2015-02-20 08:44:01 +0200 )edit

I agree with everything you wrote about Weather App! Moreover, was my expectation to can set the App to appear in the lock screen, same as MeeCast..

gordon_pcb_designer ( 2015-02-20 15:12:24 +0200 )edit

Not sure if already mentioned, but in weather app (atleast the one with, haven't checked with newest update) when you open app at night (I did so at night between saturday and sunday) let's say a 0:08 o'clock. In my case it should be showing Sunday, but it showed Saturday by default. Maybe this is from last update time? I did try to manually update without a change, so maybe there wasn't updated info at Foreca yet? Anyway not a big issue, but just mentioned.
