[release notes] 2.0.4/Fiskarsinjoki

It took a long time before we delivered the previous update (2.0.2). Our goal now is to start providing updates in shorter intervals.

This update, 2.0.4 alias Fiskarsinjoki, introduces quite a few new features and bug fixes. One of the key new features is the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card. This helps to keep the Phone Memory from getting cluttered and in good shape. Another long-awaited new feature being introduced is conference calling. You can now rotate the device to landscape in Calculator to access the new scientific mode with support for high-precision, brackets and trigonometric and exponential operations. And, you can use Gallery edit options to adjust brightness and contrast of photos. You can also launch the synchronization of Calendar in the app itself, and share files from the File manager of Storage page (in Settings). Last but not least, we have upgraded the Browser engine.

Thank you for your valuable feedback!


Upgrade version history
  • 2016-10-05: 2.0.4.13 Early access release
  • 2016-10-dd: 2.0.4.xx Roll out to all.

3rd party apps
  • HERE WeGo app (formerly known as Here maps app) updated in Jolla Store.

Accounts
  • Credentials of Jolla account dropped from backup data because the access token is used to identify the device in Jolla Store backend. Restoring the backup to different devices would then cause confusion.

Ambiences
  • [Aqua Fish] Origami, Party, Sailing and Work included in the preloaded customer content.

Audio
  • Bluetooth headset works now during Skype calls (https://together.jolla.com/question/137336/lte-with-jolla-c/ ).

  • Turn device to landscape in Calculator app to access the new scientific mode with support for high-precision, brackets and operations like sin, cos, tan, log, !, square and power.

Camera
  • Make picture names more unique by adding also time to the filename, so that pictures from different devices would not clash when uploading to a cloud service.
  • Re-opening Camera starts it in viewfinder mode.
  • Camera application in the background goes back to viewfinder mode after some time.
  • Saving creation time and date to EXIF data of photos fixed (https://together.jolla.com/question/110063/creation-date-not-saved-in -photo-exif-metadata-11928/ ).

  • Attachments show mime-specific icon.
  • Document picker is no longer limited to documents in Documents folder, but e.g. also shows documents downloaded with Browser to Downloads folder.
  • Fix to ensure successfully entering the sleep mode between sync sessions.

Gallery
  • Gallery editing options allow adjusting brightness and contrast of the photo.
  • Gallery editing now supports multiple picture formats (e.g. PNG, BMP, etc.) and not only JPG.

  • Use nonprivileged filesystem operations - when performing actions in the file manager, they are performed as the plain nemo user without extra privileges, to prevent accidental deletions or overwrites.

Vulnerabilities fixed:
  • [Jolla C, Aqua Fish] CVE-2015-1196, CVE-2014-9637, CVE-2015-1396, CVE-2015-1395 (patch, iproute).

Changelog

For detailed changelog, see https://together.jolla.com/question/146274/changelog-204fiskarsinjoki/

Updating your device

Your device must be connected to the Internet and signed in to your Jolla account. If your Jolla account is registered for Early Access releases you should receive an OS update notification when an update is available. If you have decided not to take the Early Access registration then you will get the OS update typically one week later.

We warmly recommend making some 3-4 GB of free space to the internal storage of your device before starting the update. Move your pictures and videos to the SD card (or to your PC or cloud service). After the upgrade turn on the option to save pictures and videos directly from the camera to the memory card (Settings > Apps > Camera). This is important particularly in case of "Jolla 1" devices (product name "Jolla" in Settings > About product).

This is the usual drill before attempting to update your devices:
  • If you use Phonehook from OpenRepos, uninstall it before upgrading.
  • If you use oFono from OpenRepos, revert to the official oFono before upgrading (or else you may face problems with LTE etc.).
  • If you use Patchmanager, revert all applied patches before upgrading.

Take a backup of your data before attempting to update your device and save the backup to an SD card or to some other off-device location (PC, your cloud service). Note that videos and images are not included in cloud-based backups. Do not reboot the device while the update is in progress. Do keep the phone connected to a battery charger during the whole process. Device screen may blank out during the update process; you may waken the display by a short press on the power key to monitor the progress.

For detailed instructions on updating software, visit Zendesk [ https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201836347 ].

Known issues
  • We recommend taking a backup of your data before seeking for OS update. This is because the backup option in the Sailfish OS update dialog tends to stall in some cases (after which the device must be rebooted). Backup works okay if initiated from Settings > Backup.
  • Backup/restore can fail if jolla-email is not installed, due to an invalid assumption in the restore code. If you have difficulty in restoring a previous backup, please ensure that jolla-email is installed, and try again.
  • If you have multiple Jolla C devices and backed them up to a cloud service, then in this case it may be difficult to select the wanted backup to be restored. Consider deleting the unwanted backups from the cloud (or moving them to another cloud folder temporarily) and then try again to restore.
  • Very rarely Jolla tablet fails to boot to the home screen after update. Workaround it is to reboot the device.
  • Rarely pulley menu gets stuck on Jolla. Workaround is to swipe to enter home, and then go back to app and now the pulley menu should work again.
  • Currently the backup and restore operations are limited to the size of the /tmp partition, which is typically around 1GB when empty. If this condition is not met, the backup operation creates an erroneous backup, or the restore operation fails to restore the backup correctly. A fix is underway for this, but in the meantime, you can clear the contents of /tmp before doing a backup or restore to maximize the available space. Do it easily in Settings > Utilities > Clear backup storage. If you have very large files that cannot be well compressed (e.g. videos) or a sizeable collection of large files (e.g. photos) that will cause the /tmp limit to be exceeded, move these to the memory card or some other off-device location before starting the backup/restore. Note that videos and images are not included in cloud-based backups so this is predominantly an issue for memory card backup/restore operations.

The Fiskarsinjoki update is now generally available, see blog post:

Sailfish OS Fiskarsinjoki available now

Update 2016/11/14: Fiskarsinjoki software update is now available for Intex Aqua Fish devices.

Update 2016/10/26: Fiskarsinjoki software update is now available to all Sailfish OS users. Feature addition: Fingerprint Sensor!

It’s our great pleasure to announce that we are now starting to speed up deliveries of Sailfish OS updates.

This post, as mentioned in the title, is about our software update Fiskarsinjoki. Fiskarsinjoki is a small Finnish river in the village of Fiskars. It passes through a park-like cultural landscape and lands in the Gulf of Finland – just some trivia for you to learn!

Quite a few new features and a lot of bug fixes has been added to this version of the OS. Highlights are:
  • Saving pictures/videos directly into an SD card. This feature gives you an option to save your pictures and videos directly into an SD card (if inserted) in order to keep the device storage light. In order to access the feature you will need to open your settings app -> Apps -> Camera -> Storage and from there you can select your preferred storage.

  • Conference calls: This feature will give you an option to have conference calls on your Sailfish OS powered device using the Pulley Menu while on a call and selecting “Add a call” option.

  • Scientific calculator: This feature allows you to access a scientific oriented calculator while having the calculator app open in landscape mode. It will give you options such as brackets, trigonometric, exponential operations and more.

  • More edit options in gallery app: You can now edit the brightness and contrast of your photos by using the pulley menu and selecting edit, then selecting Light and Contrast and tapping once on the image afterwards.

    Click to enlarge the image

  • Launch synchronisation from the calendar app: This feature allows you to directly and manually synchronise your calender using the pulley menu on your calendar app.

    Click to enlarge the image

  • Share files directly from file manager: This nifty feature allows you to share your files directly via Bluetooth, MMS, Twitter or any other account you have from system file manager, which is accessible from settings -> storage -> File manager (use pulley menu)

    Click to enlarge the image

  • Fingerprint Sensor: you can now use a fingerprint sensor/scanner for unlocking a device. This feature works on devices that have hardware support for this feature. Turing Phone users will be able use it on their devices starting today. See this video of how it works. If you want the device to lock itself immediately when pressing the power key or closing from the pulley menu, choose ‘no delay’ for the automatic locking.

    Video: Sailfish OS Fingerprint Sensor

In addition to the new features we’ve done a lot of bug fixes aiming to make Sailfish OS a better operating system for you to enjoy.

Full list of new features and bug fixes are now available here.

Check out basic installation instructions, and if you have any issues try following the instructions to free up space on your device.

Cheers,
Jolla Team
