We have talked about it before.
Our friend Fancesco Vaccaro the editor of Jolla Communities Italia wrote an article on Jollausers about the future plans of Sailfish updates which were heard from Stefano Mosconi whilst at Jolla Community meetup in Italy a few weeks back, but now some new information has been officially published on Sailfish Devel Mailing List which makes it clear and easier to know what we shall have in the coming days and the coming month.
The list contains:
- 4G support for users in Finland, Hong Kong and Estonia
- New events view sub-page for displaying Facebook notifications
- File picker and real tabs support in browser
- Personalise shortcuts on lockscreen pull-down menu
- Support for additional Bluetooth profiles: PBAP and HID
- Support for traditional and simplified Chinese Handwriting
Recognition in virtual keyboard
- Quick access to Sailfish OS updates in Settings
For the next update (update 7), we have planned the following new additions:
- LTE enabled for everyone
- Folder support in app launcher area
- Google contacts 2-way sync
- Save unsent messages as drafts when messages app is pushed to background
- Option to clear browser history only
- Clean cookies from browser
- “Do not track” option under Browser settings
- Enable quick scrolling feature in Sailfish views
Hopefully we’ll have the update number 6 within this coming week!
And after update 7 Jolla will have their well deserved summer break.
