As you may know, Canonical is constantly updating its Ubuntu Touch operating system, the OTA-5 Update being scheduled for release on the 15th of July, if everything goes as planned.
These are the features that will get implemented on the OTA-5, known so far:
Other features announced for OTA-5:
- A LibreOffice Viewer App for Ubuntu Touch is already in the works
- The Sudoku and Terminal apps have been updated
- Support for Media-Hub background playlist got implemented in the Music app
- The Calendar app UI has been improved
- Support for WPA-Enterprize in the network indicator and system settings has been added
- Full shell rotation support will be implemented.
- Push notifications for web apps are under works right now
- Better battery life for the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition
The OTA-4 update has been a phased update, meaning that not everybody received the update simultaneously, but it a 24h time interval, this permitting the developers to implement some fixes based on the feedback received from the lucky ones that received the update.
But OTA-5 will not be a phased update, due to a regression in the OTA-4 system image package, says Canonical’s Łukasz ‘sil2100’ Zemczak.
