We’re happy to announce the availability of the next Sailfish OS software update. It was first made available as an early release to more advanced users who have opted in to be among the first to try it. This helps us to improve quality by identifying critical issues, which only show up in certain environments or device setups before rolling the update out to the larger crowd. It also benefits our developers by providing means to test their apps against newer releases. Now it is available for everyone. Read more about our new software release procedure, and how be part of it here.

We have also added a new notification if your disk space is getting insufficient (below 500MB) when going for a software update. Remember that you can always use the memory card to store data on your phone.
