After a few productive months of development, we are ready to release the next Sailfish OS update named Lapuanjoki to the early access group!
Lapuanjoki is named after the town of Lapua, located in Southern Ostrobothnia region, flowing from lake Sampalampi to the Gulf of Bothnia.
Lapuanjoki introduces a sizable number of added value to Sailfish OS such as a bevy of new languages translated by our amazing community, updated Qt framework which includes hundreds of bug fixes, security patches for kernel, display drivers and bluez, bug fixes in CalDAV sync, Dropbox account creation and much more.
With special thanks to our community for helping us translate Sailfish OS strings to their own languages, we now have added a whopping ten new languages to Sailfish OS. Those languages include Chinese (Taiwan), Czech, Dutch, Estonian, Greek, Hungarian, Portuguese (Brazil), Slovenian, Spanish (Bolivia), Turkish. On top of those, two new keyboard layouts, Hungarian and Slovenian, are also added to the localisation part of this update! The addition of these languages will help us and our users while we expand the market for Sailfish X and add new devices to the lineup.
Ease of use
It’s all in the details. New and smaller features always gets added to Sailfish OS updates in order to detail the whole finish of the OS and make the user experience more pleasurable and easier to use on a daily basis. On Lapuanjoki, we have added details like the ability to search on the Notes app, launching camera app with a long press of the shutter key (Sony Xperia X only), and last but not least, the ability to swipe away a notification banner with a horizontal flick.
Sailfish X exclusive
Alien Dalvik version has now been updated on Sailfish X devices, adding fixes and improvements to Android support such as a fix for audio recording issue on apps such as WeChat, improved camera startup in Android apps and more.
