  1. Yeehaw, christmas is early

    • Really, you received your final part of the Tablet refund ?
      I am still waiting on it.
      Guess Christmas will be late this year, if it even happens ever again.

      NOCK NOCK JOLLA !! Instead of investing our (tablet funders) money in the OS please finish your unfinished business with the Tablet backers.

      Only a FULL Refund will get us of your back (you should have considered this before you took our money ! )

      • Sounds like poor financial management on your part if you put all your money for every future Christmas into a bit of tech…

  2. Nice, that it goes further on! Still very curious, when official Fairphone2 will be supported…:-))

    And… I’ll miss the former SailfishOS logo. I love it. It’s design is simply more creative.

    Very happy that the story goes on and hope that SailfishOS will rise in India. Make lots of noise there!

    • same here, I’m also eagerly waiting for official support on Fairphone 2 to upgarde my smartphone.

      (currently a happy Jolla 1 user and I don’t want any other OS than SailfishOS)

  3. Nice to see sailfish progress but it is wrong to use tablet contributors money for something else than the tablet. Please continue with the refund program now.

    • I, for one, denied my refund, so they’d more have cash at hand to keep working on SFOS (even if the price of the tablet only buys some coffee for the team). Hopefully I wasn’t alone.

      • Yeah, given the total supporters that denied the refund should secure the refund program. If 50% wanted refund…the other 50 would cover the total refund. Jolla should have without debt to backers and no one could second guess how Jolla spent the money.

        Knock knock
        What?
        Refund!

      • If they wanted money for Sailfish development where it actually went then the IndieGoShit campaing should of been for Sailfish development and nothing else.

        • Or just refund and move on.

        • What good is a tablet without an OS? Sure, it could’ve been handled better, but are you really naïve enough to think that no software development was needed for a new tablet? That’s just crazy. Money went into hardware and software; you must have wanted the software too, because if you just wanted hardware there are plenty of other options out there.

          • @Daedalus: People like anttimonty know full well that all the development for what’s now “2.0″ was necessary for the tablet only (for supporting different screen sizes, that is, and not taking cellular connectivity for granted). In fact, during the tablet campaign, software development for the phone almost came to a full stop. They just want to crash the party here by spreading half-truths and outright lies. Don’t even try to tell them what they already know. :)

    • Couldn’t have said it better myself.

      Give me my money back !

  4. The OS is maturing, now it has legs to stand and eyes to see.. that is a lot of improvement.. :D

    The OS now needs gloves to its fist to fight against the opponent, with help of Perkele, it is just a matter of time.. :)

  5. Could you guys pick a reference phone, even if it’s a Nexus or other commonly available model? I feel my 1st gen Jolla is starting to die and at this point there isn’t any phone one can buy to actual run this release on. I know the seas are rough, but it would help Jolla’s cause to have this release available as an image for one or more phones that are actually available. So far we haven’t heard much news from FairPhone, PuzzlePhone or Turing phone.

    Good luck!

    • If U didn’t had the opportunity to put a hand to the “Jolla C”, your current bet is “Intex Aqua Fish” (intex.in) or “Oysters” (oysters.ru)

      • “Oysters” it is more impressive than “Intex Aqua Fish”, also more mature looking phone, by the way thanks for the info, will explore the possibility of buying one..somehow.. :D.. ))))

  6. No problem with update. It may be a bit soon to celebrate, but it seems it solved issues over switching from an ipv6-enabled network to an ipv4-only one.

    New browser release also seems to now not crash anymore when using geolocalisation.

    Good job, sailfish team!

  7. What about to open source code for more part from sailfish os?
    Is any plans to port sailfish os on OnePlus 3?
    When the second part of the tablet refund will take place?

  8. Thank you for some handy changes.

  9. Update fails with the following error: Store Problem could not determine size of update.

    How to get out of this error?

    • another errors also could not update Sailfish OS.

    • Seems same kind problems with others updates, eg. Jolla’s official programs.

  10. please include USB OTG feature in the intex aqua fish as it’s a very handy and useful feature. Also in future we want to see Nokia devices with sailfish OS.

    • …With a landscape qwerty slider.

      • Hear, hear! I want a Nokia E9-slider with SFOS!

  11. Wifi direct file transfer app like xender, shareit etc are not working . These are very important now a days. Also ES file explorer is not able to detect the external memory card. Though Jolla’s own file explorer works flawlessly but has limited features . These issues are needed to be addressed to make the OS more appealing .

  12. Jolla developers an Jolla OS engineers must listen to testers or users like us. We want Sailfish OS to be the real challenger for the popular platforms today. But it can be done by giving proper weightage to our feedback. So please listen to us. Developers like Coderus,Enigma etc are doing really nice work. They must take the lead to make Sailfish a grand success .

  13. Any rumours on the public release date?

  14. People expect emojis in 2016. You need to ad this as soon as possible.

  15. Hi, is it possible to inform us Jolla users when the final Version of any news SF Verison is ready to install ?

    • Hi, your phone will get a notification when connected to Internet.

  16. മലയാളത്തിനു നന്ദി

  17. When update will be for public distribution?

  18. The latest message is also shown with larger font on the application cover now, when the message application is in a conversation. This is very useful to me at least, as one-time passwords etc are easier to read.

  19. Will this release be available for Intex Aqua Fish too? Currently the mobile Internet connection is very unreliable.

  20. Hello,
    Yesterday I received a message that an update for my Jolla1 is available. I assumed that the release is now stable and installed it. Everything worked fine. The new features are nice.
    I would suggest for the future, that You inform via Your blog in advance that a release went form early to stable.

    • Hi!
      We released a post to our blog today. Sorry about the delay.

      Cheers,
      James

    • What will it bring to know it in advance?

  21.

  22. i am not satisfied
