Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Canonical has been added a few stability enhancements already to the RTM (release-to-manufacturer) branch of Ubuntu Touch, still based on Ubuntu 14.04, adding new features only to the development branches which uses Ubuntu 14.10 as code base.
With each Ubuntu-RTM image promotion, the bug list gets shorter. Recently, Ubuntu RTM has received its 10th update, which brings small changes compared to the ninth update (a new music app included), but noticeable enhancements, in comparison with the first Ubuntu RTM image released.
The initial plan was to release the first Ubuntu powered Meizu and Bq phones by the end of this year, but this has been rescheduled, the reason being still unknown.
For now, Ubuntu Touch is officially supported only on Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 2013, while the first two manufacturers to release Ubuntu phones are Meizu and Bq. Both Meizu and Bq will be using the Ubuntu RTM version of the OS, which is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and is the most stable Ubuntu Touch branch.
