[release notes] Sailfish SDK 2.1 [Early Access]

Sailfish SDK version 2.1

Today (Apr 29th) at 13:00 UTC we published new installers and repositories of the Sailfish SDK to Early Access. This SDK release is called 2.1 and among other changes it enables development for Sailfish OS release 3.0.3.

Please, read the following notes about the Early Access SDK:

  • You must ensure that you have disabled the two default repositories before updating or installing the Early Access SDK. Please, read the detailed Early Access SDK installation or update instructions.
  • By using the Early Access SDK developers can test their Sailfish OS apps a week before the Sailfish OS release is made public
  • During the early access time the Early Access SDK should not be used for submitting apps to the Jolla Harbour
  • The installers for this release of the SDK are available at http://sailfishos.org/wiki/Application_SDK_Early_Access#Latest_Early_Access_SDK_Release
  • Instructions for adding the early access repository into the SDK can be found from http://sailfishos.org/wiki/Application_SDK_Early_Access#Receiving_Early_Access_SDK_Updates_Automatically

If you add the early access repository into your SDK and have an older release of the SDK, you should see an update notification in the Sailfish SDK. Otherwise, you will see an update notification in the Sailfish SDK, when the Sailfish SDK 2.1 is publicly available to all users.

The latest Emulator and Build Targets match Sailfish OS release 3.0.3.8 (Hossa)

Emulators and Build Targets for several older Sailfish OS releases remain available. Please see below for detailed information of the changes.

A couple of things you should be aware of:

  • As before, in this update the Build Engine, Emulator and Targets are reinstalled so you will lose all changes you may have made in those. However, if your application packaging is done correctly, rebuilding your projects should reinstall the packages you have been using.
  • Any customization done to SDK (adding new package repositories, adding custom Targets, additional source paths) will be removed during the installation process so make your own backup of those before starting the update.
  • If you import existing projects made with a previous version of the SDK, make sure to select the correct kit in the project configuration step. Both ARM and i486 kits are available.
  • Package repository contents have been updated and consequently using a previous SDK version with these package repositories is not supported.
  • For more information, please see the Application SDK known issues list.

Release Content

Sailfish SDK 2.1

SDK IDE (Qt Creator, Qt QmlLive)

  • Desktop kit is no longer suggested during project configuration
  • MDM API is now supported by the SDK
  • API documentation for Sailfish OS 3.0.3.8
  • Fixed a bug where saving a file disabled deploying for a few seconds

Installer/Maintenance Tool

  • Running virtual machines are stopped before they are upgraded
  • Duplicate licenses were removed from the installer

Build Engine

  • Possibility to change Build Engine VM size, CPU count and storage size (Tools > Options > Sailfish OS > Build Engine > System)
  • Added build targets for Sailfish OS 3.0.3.8

Emulator

  • It is now possible to restore the emulator to a clean state (Tools > Options > Devices > Sailfish OS Emulator > Factory reset...)
  • Fixed a bug where changing emulator mode sometimes caused the IDE to crash
  • Added emulator package for Sailfish OS 3.0.3.8

If you have any questions, feel free to either send an email to SailfishDevel mailing list: devel at lists.sailfishos.org, write it up here in http://together.jolla.com and tag your issue with 'sdk' or send an e-mail to developer-care at jolla.com.
