I read the posts about the early access details/problems, but when will the officially release take place? Did the stabilizing of 1.1.4 work, can we expect an official date soon or should we be more patient?

It seems you don't have a choice. Jolla users are experienced in waiting, hrr hrr ;-)

@moosiqpipl lol, waiting a couple of weeks is nothing compared to waiting 1 year to get an android upgrade on their own nexus devel phone! @PatsJolla really? The body is not even cold (48h) and you ask for its inheritance?! Wait another 120h (that is when the 7-days grace period is over...) but I guess there will be another EAR before final as they have not fixed the upgrade process yet, did they?.

@chemist The initial post about update 14 has happened on April 16th.. this is..let me count: 14 days so its two weeks. After an official announcement that an update will be available it is not impolite to ask for an official date two weeks later, I'm sorry but there are enough people writing about bugs and waiting for updates and this seems to become a big one. Here is the link to the post

There are even people who asked for help about update

So I don't think it is too much to ask for an official date. And if Jolla tells will take at least 3 more weeks to make it more stable, so be it.

I'm a bit picky about questions today, nothing personal - still, 48h (28th?) after an early access release this is "I cannot wait for it!" behaviour. Universal Jolla answer SOON™ applies to such intend, if "one week" waiting is too much to ask.

Just as a note, 3 weeks from now is probably the next early access release candidate already.

You really want a release date? What for? To be in a huff when the date passes and the update isn't available?

As a 'normal' user I would want an update when it's ready, polished, and tested. This means: You can't have a date. Otherwise you risk getting an unfinished, rough, and not properly tested release.

Usually its a week after the last early access update. Except if someone finds a nasty bug.

My guess, monday.

'Usually'??? There have only been two updates with early access release. In both cases the public release has been delayed due to bugs in the early access version. It seems that 3-4 weeks from early access to public access is the norm.

As to this update, it was mentioned on that the early access release should be distributed to early access users this week. This means that it will take at least another week to do the public release.

@bilgy_no1newsflash it might never come if they do not want to put effort in something that is fixed in the next version already but breaks a whole other in the current early-access, wasn't it 1 week after the last release-candidate? No one said it will be out one week after the first early-access RC... it was said one week after early-access, so the last update of early-access is either not the last in a week or it is released, right?

Now my head is spinning. :)

Just wait. Early access means, development and internal testing are finished. Nothing more, nothing less.

Some days or a week. If problems occur, add a week or something like that (happenend with this release). Repeating!

Imagine 50% of all Jolla devices are bricked, through a small bug, horror story. Nowadays including instant press coverage including and a casual twitter shitstorm. Of course your real and paying, existing customers are also hit by this, which rely and trust on you.

// I'm myself a software developer. I would never release a new version at friday...hell on earth.

The new update have heavy battery issues and other bugs. See here for the list. I think they have to fix them first before the update will be public.

can't confirm any of these... I'm actually on Feels much smoother and battery life is better than with 1.1.2.x I use alien dalvik as well without problems notifications are possible thanks to coderus' app. So I'm very happy with the Update.

drummer12 ( 2015-05-01 16:45:43 +0300 )edit

I've personally haven't experience any of the bugs, but the are reported.

heubergen ( 2015-05-02 16:53:43 +0300 )edit

there is no real issue with battery consumption for this new release. bugs are minor, no reason not to upgrade

pmelas ( 2015-05-05 15:37:05 +0300 )edit

My battery life definitely went down since Used to easily hold for 2-3 days, but now I rarely can survive till the end of the 2-nd.

No, today minus 23h equals yesterday.

Roughly three weeks since the early release..let's see how it goes next time. So far I didn't encounter any bugs.

Thanks to the Jolla team for the hard work!

PatsJolla ( 2015-05-05 23:48:14 +0300 )edit

@PatsJolla roughly 6 days after the last RC was published to early-access, that is ~pretty much (1 day earlier) what was told before! Can we just not have this question next time, please? Jolla is doing a great job with communicating early-access so far so no need to add noise to it.
