L10n strings for 3.1.0, Round 1
#Jolla is getting ready for the #SailfishOS 3.1.0 release.
This time (Round 1 of 2) there are about 210 strings to be translated depending on the language. Jolla kindly asks the community to help with translations until Saturday, 15th June.
#SailfishOS 18.104.22.168 as an OTA update was released to all subscribers. This small update includes several bug fixes mostly for the Xperia XA2:
- FIxed issue with showing the calling line number (all devices);
- Improvements to Android Support of XA2;
- Flashing scripts of XA2 now allow both vendor binaries (v16 and v17).
Interview with #Jolla CEO Sami Pienimäki on the South African news outlet TechCentral. In the interview they discuss the evolution of #SailfishOS strategy to the current enterprise and government licensing model.
“Overall, there definitely has been increased interest towards #SailfishOS as a mobile OS platform in different parts of the world, partly triggered by the on-going political activity in many locations. We have also had clearly more discussions with e.g. Chinese device manufacturers, and Jolla has also recently started new corporate and governmental customer projects in Europe.” - #Jolla co-founder and CEO Sami Pienimäki
"#SailfishOS UI just came up on the #Pinephone devkit, using open source Lima driver, Mesa and kernel 5.1." (by @adampigg on Twitter https://twitter.com/adampigg/status/1131962696100974592)
I've been running #SailfishOS - an alternative mobile #Linux OS - on a new #XperiaXA2 for several weeks and am very pleased with it. Can definitely be used as a daily driver and the XA2 battery lasts for days. Support an alternative to #Android and #iOS. #privacy #controlyourdata #jolla https://sailfishos.org

So, I just ordered an Xperia XA2. As soon as I get everything with my carrier set up I'm installing @sailfishosnews on it. Can't wait. It'll be nice to have a phone OS that has a native terminal built in.
