Ubuntu Touch OTA-6 Update Won’t Install Dekko And Calendar As Default

As a you may already know, 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.

Unlike Google’s Android, Ubuntu Touch received OTA updates monthly, the systems receiving new features and bug-fixes fast this way.

Recently, GCC5 has been made the system’s default compiler and the transition was a little bumpy, the developers having to solve a lot of issues.

But this is past now and they can focus on the release of the OTA-6 Update. Most likely, the Dekko mail client and the calendar will not get implemented on the system, but will be installable via the play store.

Łukasz ‘sil2100’ Zemczak announcement from the mailing lists:

“In the nearest day we will also prioritize all work related to getting emulator images building again and actually ‘working,’ as this is a blocker for OTA-6. We also wanted to include calendar and dekko by default in OTA-6, but it seems both aren’t quite ready for that yet. Will probably have to be postponed once again. For now users will have to get those from the store,”

    It’s good to see that Canonical’s following the monthly update model of my beloved SailfishOS (which I happily use on my Jolla phone!) 🙂
