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 (tomorrow), if everything goes as planned.
Recently, the developers have announced that the SMS application has received support for sending SMS messages to multiple recipients and MTP support has been implemented, among others.
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
As a reminder, Ubuntu Touch is a stable operating system, but it is not mature enough, compared to Android and iOS. For now, there are three Ubuntu Phones: Bq Aquaris E5 HD, Bq Aquaris E4.5, Meizu MX4, but the system is also officially supported on the LG Nexus 4 device.
