Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Canonical has been working hard in the last couple of months at Ubuntu Touch, the mobile version of the Ubuntu Linux system. Among others, they have fixed some hud crashes, have patched Mir to be compatible with Nexus 10′s hardware architecture, fixed some Network Manager issues, added support for Unknown calls and SMS messages and many others.
At first, the Ubuntu Touch images were based on Ubuntu 13.10, specially optimized for the Google Nexus 4 smartphone, but the developers have switched to the Ubuntu 14.04 channel, for the next Ubuntu Touch images. Also, Ubuntu Touch got Mir and Unity 8 patches, to work on the Google Nexus 10 tablet, and most probably, the Google Nexus 7 is pending for Ubuntu Touch support. Ubuntu Touch is available also for the other Nexus devices (except Nexus 5), but it does not run flawless, since it uses the libhybris library.
Lately, image #80 of Ubuntu Touch has been released, being the most stable and complete image of Ubuntu Touch, until now. Among others, it comes with Mir and Unity 8 updates, fix for the mediaplayer-app issue, a new Ubuntu UI Toolkit, download manager fixes, support for unity-api, pulseaudio improvements and many others.
