Ubuntu Touch OTA-7 Update Available To Download For All Supported Devices
Since the launch of Ubuntu Touch OTA-7 software update on 19th October, there have been regular reports coming on from Canonical’s staff regarding the changes in the new software. According to Canonical’s Łukasz Zemczak, the OTA-7 (r26) has been fully deployed to all supported Ubuntu phones and tablets, including BQ Aquaris E4.5, BQ Aquaris E5 as well as Google’s Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 devices.
While the update has been sent out to everyone, those that still haven’t received it yet should reboot their devices and then check for an update again by going into “Settings” > “About this phone” and pressing the “Check for updates” button.
“If you didn’t get an update yet, please reboot your phone and check for updates then – we noticed that due to the early publish on Friday things can get ‘stuck’ for krillin devices,” said Zemczak.
Now that the work on OTA-7 has been completed, developers will be shifting their focus on the next update OTA-8 to fix bugs from OTA-7 as well as introduce new features. The next update is planned for 18th November, 2015.
Ubuntu devs are being informed by Mr. Zemczak that OTA-8 is opened for landings, so they can submit new features and fixes. Also, the overlay-ppa daily-builds was re-enabled in the rc-proposed channel. Lastly, the buteo contact sync landing will be re-released in the next image of Ubuntu Touch.
