[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX

The latest and greatest news from the Arch Linux distribution.

(https://archlinux.org/news/wxwidgets-32-update-may-need-manual-intervention/) wxWidgets 3.2 update may need manual intervention
Jul 14th 2022, 21:20

wxWidgets 3.2 provides a Qt frontend in addition to the GTK3 one, so packages have been renamed from wxgtk- to wxwidgets-.
The GTK2 frontend is no longer provided. If you have wxgtk2 installed, the upgrade will fail with
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing wxgtk-common breaks dependency 'wxgtk-common' required by wxgtk2
In such case, uninstall wxgtk2 first and then proceed with the upgrade.

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA. Meet the Xperia 10 III with Sailfish OS

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA

(https://blog.jolla.com/xperia-10-iii/) Meet the Xperia 10 III with Sailfish OS
May 17th 2022, 16:06

It brings great pleasure to announce the release of Sailfish OS 4.4.0 Vanha Rauma for the Sony Xperia 10 III. The combination of Sailfish OS optimised for the Xperia 10 III offers amazing performance at an impressive price, giving the best Sailfish OS best experience yet. Sailfish OS on the Xperia 10 III also includes beta VoLTE support, disabled by default, but available for brave community members to try out for the first time. Not only is this the best way to experience Sailfish OS, but we also believe it's the best way to enjoy the Sony Xperia 10 III hardware.
We know that many of you have been eagerly awaiting the release since we previewed it at the (https://blog.jolla.com/happy-birthday-jolla/) Sailing for Ten Years party in Berlin. We've been working extremely hard to ensure it runs in the best possible way, and we're very happy with the result. You can try and buy Sailfish OS to flash directly to the Xperia 10 III from the (https://shop.jolla.com/) Jolla Shop for 49,90€, the same price as all the other Sony devices in the Sailfish X program. For this, you'll get the Sailfish image to flash to your device of course. In addition, you get the paid extras of Android AppSupport for running Android apps directly within Sailfish OS, Exchange ActiveSync support for Office 365 syncing of emails, calendars and contacts, and predictive text support.(https://shop.jolla.com/)
To give you an idea about what to expect from the Xperia 10 III, we thought we'd take a bit of a tour of the hardware. As this is a new device, there are also a few known issues that you should be aware of. We'll discuss those and the beta VoLTE support later
What you get from the Xperia 10 III
To look at, the Xperia 10 III is remarkably similar to the Xperia 10 II. There are some tell-tale differences: marginally thicker (8.3 mm vs 8.2mm) to accommodate a larger battery and with a slightly thinner screen bevel, especially at the top.
But it still has the same comfortably smooth glass casing, the same conveniently placed combined power button and fingerprint reader on the side, the same slightly raised three-lens camera bump on the back, the same uniquely-Sony 21:9 (1080 x 2520 pixel) screen aspect ratio, and the same sleek yet understated Sony design.
(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2022/05/xperia-10-iii.jpg)
We've done our best to ensure Sailfish OS makes the most of all this hardware. And we see that in the performance results we get with the device. For example, (https://docs.sailfishos.org/Reference/Core_Areas_and_APIs/Browser/#performance-testing-results) on the browser, the Octane 2.0 benchmark jumps from 6696 on the Xperia 10 II to a whopping 15925 on the Xperia 10 III. Jetstream2 similarly leaps from 19.046 up to 36.622. If you're updating from an older device you can expect an even greater improvement.
And this isn't just demonstrated in the numbers, you can also really feel it when you use the device too.
Running this rather-beautiful (https://akirodic.com/p/jellyfish/) jellyfish browser simulation with a hundred jellyfish, the Xperia 10 III consistently manages a silky-smooth 60 fps. In contrast the Xperia 10 II could only manage an average of 43. This level of performance difference is quite noticeable in practice.
(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2022/05/framerates.jpg)
For graphical transitions or background processes there's a visibly noticeable improvement that makes Sailfish OS feel tangibly smoother and more responsive. We're talking buttery smooth. The great news is that these performance improvements don't come at the expense of battery life. The Xperia 10 III will run far faster and for far longer than the Xperia 10 II.
Rendering full-screen HD video with the screen set to eye-watering full-brightness on both devices running Sailfish OS, the Xperia 10 III kept going for 58% longer than the Xperia 10 II. That's a testament not just to the 25% larger battery (4500 mAh vs 3600 mAh) but also to the amazing effort Jolla's adaptation team has put into making the Xperia 10 III run as efficiently as possible (back in December an early Xperia 10 III adaptation was was losing charge 31% faster than the Xperia 10 II).
VoLTE beta
We are also happy to announce that brave community members are now able to try the beta version of VoLTE available for the Xperia 10 III. It is disabled by default, but you can enable it and join the testing by following the (https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/beta-volte-on-the-xperia-10-iii-disabled-by-default/11492) instructions on the forum.
A foundation for future development
While we're really incredibly happy with how Sailfish OS runs on the Xperia 10 III, there are a couple of important issues we're still working on which we didn't want to delay the release for. First, a glitch in the underlying firmware means echo cancellation for calls using the internal speaker works incorrectly. Second, only the standard back-facing camera (12 MP, f/1.8, 27mm, 1/2.8″, PDAF) and the front-facing selfie camera are available for use with Sailfish OS. In the latter case, we're hoping to work with our amazing community to develop a solution. For more details, please see our (https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/a-foundation-for-future-development/11512) related forum post.
As with any new release there are also likely to be a few other bumps, and we're always keen to receive your feedback and to iron them out.
New features for all phones
As we roll out the changes needed for the Xperia 10 III, we're also taking the opportunity to provide an update for all our existing users too. This point-release update rolls out changes that aim to make an immediate improvement to the everyday Sailfish OS experience.
Apps with the Location permission will now be able to access the compass; the updated Mozilla Location Services databases will improve GPS lock speeds; browser improvements will ensure more websites work better on Sailfish OS. We've also added a Restart Fingerprint button to alleviate an intermittent issue with the fingerprint sensor some users have experienced.
These changes will bump up the Sailfish OS version from 4.4.0.58 to 4.4.0.64.
The best way to run Sailfish OS
Based on our experiences using the Xperia 10 III during development over recent months, we're convinced that it's not just a worthy addition to the Sailfish X line-up, but the best addition yet. We'd go so far as to say it gives the best Sailfish OS experience of any of our devices, by a wide margin. We hope you enjoy using it, and will join us on our journey to continue improving it further.

[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX. Undone replacement of pipewire-media-session with wireplumber

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero
[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX

The latest and greatest news from the Arch Linux distribution.

(https://archlinux.org/news/undone-replacement-of-pipewire-media-session-with-wireplumber/) Undone replacement of pipewire-media-session with wireplumber
May 12th 2022, 21:48

Two days ago the wireplumber package was made to replace pipewire-media-session as the latter session manager for PipeWire is considered dead upstream and will see no more releases. Unfortunately, this step was premature.
Our pipewire audio packages (pipewire-alsa, pipewire-jack and pipewire-pulse) ship configuration that prompt media-session to activate PipeWire's audio features. When these packages are not installed and the configuration is missing, PipeWire can be used for screen recording without interfering with ALSA or PulseAudio.
WirePlumber disregards this mechanism and always configures PipeWire to grab audio devices, meaning users of PulseAudio or bare ALSA experience broken audio.
The replacement has been reverted while we attempt to look for a better solution switching to WirePlumber. If you are currently not using PipeWire for audio and wireplumber got installed on your system, please reinstall pipewire-media-session and reboot to restore audio functionality.
pacman -Syu pipewire-media-session

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA. Sailfish OS Vanha Rauma brings in several new features and improvements

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero
#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA

(https://blog.jolla.com/sailfish-os-vanha-rauma-brings-in-several-new-features-and-improvements/) Sailfish OS Vanha Rauma brings in several new features and improvements
Mar 29th 2022, 16:45

As we continue our Sailfish tour of World Heritage Sites, today we reached Vanha Rauma, the old heart of Rauma, a city that sits along the coastal road between Pori and Turku in the southwest of Finland and on the banks of the Rauma river. Vanha Rauma is a living monument to the enchanting style of old Nordic wooden construction. Home to 800 inhabitants, you'll find beautiful examples of 19th Century Neo Renaissance-style exteriors alongside the immaculately preserved 15th Century Church of the Holy Cross. As the (https://www.visitrauma.fi/en/) Visit Rauma site puts it, walking around the town is like "stepping into a fairy tale".
We aim for the beautiful Sailfish user experience to bring a similar elegance and simplicity to an otherwise busy and distracting world. But the beauty on the surface has to be backed up with cutting-edge technology underneath which keeps up with modern standards and developments.
That's why in the 4.4.0 Vanha Rauma release we've been working hard to improve compatibility across the board, keeping up with recent browser and feature developments. At the same time, we've been refining the user interface to allow all the new features to be exposed in a way that doesn't impact on the simplicity of your device in daily use.
Special thanks to Kees van Niftrik for allowing us to use his beautiful photo of old Rauma for the update.
 

Updated Browser Engine
A major change in Sailfish OS 4.4.0 Vanha Rauma is the introduction of a new browser engine based on Mozilla Gecko ESR 78, an update from the ESR 60 engine from previous releases. The "ESR" in this name stands for "Extended Support Release", which means that the engine has continued to receive bug fixes and is therefore especially stable.
The browser engine is a large piece of software. To throw some numbers around, the core engine is comprised of 39 245 files of generated and compiled code (13 798 479 lines of C++ and Rust) and 71 277 files of dynamic code (8 177 160 lines of Javascript). Getting it to work on Sailfish OS is a large task, and when we started the process ESR 78 was (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar) the most recent Extended Support Release of Gecko available. It's also an important update since it's the first release for Sailfish OS to make use of the (https://blog.mozilla.org/en/mozilla/introducing-firefox-quantum) Gecko Quantum engine, which we've had disabled in previous releases for stability reasons. Mozilla benchmarks the new engine at twice the speed of its predecessor. That doesn't translate directly to the user experience because the renderer is only one piece of the stack, but we've been doing our own benchmarks, which we'll be (https://docs.sailfishos.org/Reference/Core_Areas_and_APIs/Browser/#performance-testing) making available on the Sailfish OS Documentation Site.
As with previous browser updates, we've also taken the opportunity to add features and refine the user interface. WebRTC audio and video have been improved to better support browser-based video calls. Navigation and tab control have been improved, so that closing a tab will take you to the tab you previously had open, and hitting back on a pop-up window will close it and take you to the tab that spawned it. The browser interface and menu have been updated with feedback and code contributions from you, our users. These changes are all aimed at making your browsing experience smoother and more intuitive. Even if you may not directly notice the changes, we hope you'll find the totality a more enjoyable browsing experience.
The result of all this is the fastest, most compatible and most feature-full Sailfish browsing experience yet.
(https://docs.sailfishos.org/Reference/Core_Areas_and_APIs/Browser/)

New features throughout
While the browser changes will have a big impact in several areas, in practice it's just one example of the (https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/release-notes-vanha-rauma-4-4-0/10656) very many improvements  you'll find permeating the Sailfish 4.4.0 Vanha Rauma release.
Another new feature we particularly like is the ability to pair Bluetooth devices using NFC. Just tap another NFC-capable Bluetooth device such as a speaker, and your phone will automatically create a new pairing if one hasn't already been made, or initiate a connection if it has. Take a look in the NFC page of the Settings app to control this new functionality.
From within the stock Camera app you can now apply a variety of effects filters. Greyscale, sepia, posterise, whiteboard and blackboard are all provided by default, and on the Xperia 10 II these can be used with all three of the available camera lenses. You can now see the results of the filters directly as you compose your piece, take the shot and upload the results using the inbuilt sharing interface, without ever having to leave the camera app.
You can also view all of your historical photos more easily with the introduction of a date-based scrollbar to the Gallery app. What's more, we've also made this new scrollbar widget available for use by other apps, including third party apps. If you look around you'll find it in use throughout the operating system already.
Our Android app support has been updated and improved, with the Android 10 base being updated to r62 security patch level, as well as improvements to allow video and audio calls to work correctly with Android apps, including Telegram, Whatsapp and Threema.
(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2022/03/VanhaRauma_UIScreens_2.jpg)
Community contributions
Building with strong Open Source foundations continues to pay dividends for the operating system, and we can all benefit from the contributions that have come from the community. Special thanks go to Michał Szczepaniak for his excellent contributions to improving the location accuracy when GNSS (e.g. GPS) is used. Damien Caliste has also continued to make abundant improvements to the Email app with PGP signing fixes, and to the Calendar stack in more areas than can be easily described here. Users of the Calendar app, especially if you're syncing to external services, will see more stable and less error-prone results, and better error reporting in case something does go awry.
The latest release brings Latvian as an entirely new language with full support both for the keyboard and localisation throughout the operating system. Contributions have come from at least ten community contributors, with a special note to akerran, garaushi, Indus and JSEHV for their excellent and prolific language contributions. At Jolla we're very proud of the localisation support that we provide. With the addition of Latvian this has now reached a total of 40 different officially supported localisations, an achievement very much shared with and made possible by the community.
Finally, we have poured our effort into addressing as many of the issues you raised from previous releases as possible. Over thirty issues directly reported in the forums have been investigated and fixed for the latest release. These include Android connectivity issues that have now been fixed, improvements to the MMS integration, synchronisation fixes, Bluetooth fixes, ambience fixes and more. With Sailfish OS devices used all over the world, connecting to different providers, different services and used in wildly different environments, it's impossible for us to test all possible combinations. The bug reports you file are an important way for us not only to know about what's important to you, but also to know about what might be an issue in the first place. Our thanks go out to everyone who submitted reports to the forum.
 
A lot, but not everything
We've packed a lot in to our Sailfish OS 4.4.0 Vanha Rauma release, and we're proud of the result. The release has taken slightly longer than we'd originally planned, but we really hope you'll agree with us that the wait was worth it.
Nevertheless, we never rest on our laurels, and there are a number of capabilities that we know you've been looking forward to, but which didn't make it into this release. The two most obvious being VoLTE support, and support for the Xperia 10 III.
While it was never our intention for VoLTE to go in to 4.4.0, the release does nevertheless include many important pieces of the groundwork needed to allow this to happen in a future release. We still plan to bring VoLTE support to Sailfish OS later in the year. (https://youtu.be/c2E69IAAvzc) See the demonstration of simultaneous data transfer and VoLTE calling. 
On the other hand, while we had hoped to do a joint Xperia 10 III and 4.4.0 release, we eventually decided to decouple the two, so as to get the 4.4.0 release out to you as soon as possible. The Xperia 10 III adaptation is cooking up nicely, and we're super excited to get it out to you, but for that you'll have to wait just a bit longer.
