Ubuntu Touch OTA-8 Gets Power Consumption Fix, Updated Web Browser app, and More
Canonical’s Łukasz Zemczak has just sent his daily report to shed light on the latest work done by Ubuntu Touch developers in preparation for the upcoming OTA-8 software update.
Zemczak reveals that the new Ubuntu-push patches the power-consumption issue that occurred when no network was available on Ubuntu Touch-powered devices. The update also brings new versions of the Unity Scopes Shell, Web Browser app, and account-polld, along with multiple bug and UI fixes.
In addition, there is a new version of the Oxide video player – oxide-qt – in flight right now, and that will soon be handed to QA for thorough testing. The developers also promise to fix all the reported issues from the Ubuntu Touch OTA-7, if possible.
“With OTA-7 out of the door, normal landings continue,” says Zemczak. “Besides that, we also re-enabled commitlogs once again. The PPA-changes mailing lists are back up as well – we also added another list for all landings happening to the wily overlay-ppa in case those are needed.”
We’ll keep an eye out and update you as soon as more details surface.
