Update: Sailfish OS 2.1.3 is now publicly available on Jolla devices and Sailfish X!
After the successful launch of Sailfish X, we are now rolling out Sailfish OS 2.1.3 update aka Kymijoki as early access to Jolla devices (Jolla1, Jolla C and Jolla Tablet) as well as Sailfish X.
This update contains numerous new features and bug fixes for devices across the board. Our engineers and developers have been, as always, hard at work in order to eliminate reported bugs, deliver the latest security features and add new features to Sailfish OS to make it a more complete operating system.
Two of the well-known security vulnerabilities that are now fixed in Kymijoki are the WPA KRACK vulnerability and Bluetooth Blueborne vulnerability. Alongside that, number of improvements have been made for Qt and Android applications which fixes many of their issues. Kymijoki contains the latest Ambience called “Flow” which we introduced with Sailfish X now rolling out for all Sailfish OS powered devices.
