(https://archlinux.org/news/linux-firmware-202201190c6a7b3-2-requires-kernel-53-and-package-splitting/) linux-firmware 20220119.0c6a7b3-2 requires kernel >=5.3 and package splitting
Jan 21st 2022, 18:35

The linux-firmware package 20220119.0c6a7b3-2 implements kernel
firmware compression. Linux kernel from 5.3 on support loading
from xz compressed firmware.
CONFIG_FW_LOADER_COMPRESS kernel option must be enabled. All official Arch Linux kernel support this for a long time. [1]
The linux-firmware package has been split into smaller packages to
further reduce required disk space. Some big firmware files of
rarely used hardware have been split into separate packages.
This affects firmware for Mellanox Spectrum switches, Marvell devices,
Qualcomm SoCs, Cavium LiquidIO server adapters, QLogic devices,
Broadcom NetXtreme II 10Gb ethernet adapters.
Make sure to install additional firmware packages if needed. [2]

[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX

The latest and greatest news from the Arch Linux distribution.

(https://archlinux.org/news/libxml22912-6-update-may-require-manual-intervention/) libxml2>=2.9.12-6 update may require manual intervention
Dec 27th 2021, 07:17

The libxml2 package prior to version 2.9.12-6 was missing the compiled python modules. This has been fixed in 2.9.12-6, so the upgrade may need to overwrite any untracked pyc files created. If you get errors like these
libxml2: /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/__pycache__/drv_libxml2.cpython-310.opt-1.pyc exists in filesystem

libxml2: /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/__pycache__/libxml2.cpython-310.pyc exists in filesystem

when updating, use
pacman -Syu --overwrite /usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/__pycache__/\*

to perform the upgrade.

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA. Congrats UK, we’re back!

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

(https://blog.jolla.com/congrats-uk/) Congrats UK, we're back!
Dec 7th 2021, 13:52

Last month, as part of our 10-year celebrations, we announced that we're working to expand the Sailfish X availability to include new countries in addition to the current EU, Norway, and Switzerland.
Now we have great news for you: we have re-opened Sailfish X sales in the UK!
The UK has always been a stronghold for Sailfish OS. This started already in the early days when many Brits decided to purchase the Jolla phone and start their Sailfish OS journey. Over the years, our developer community and fan base has grown in the UK, and many of our employees (aka sailors) are also from this great island nation.
All this in mind, we were disappointed when we had to leave the UK for a while (Brexit), but now we are thrilled to start again!
To celebrate the re-launch, and also the rapidly approaching Xmas, we offer a free Sailfish X licence for every licence purchased. This free voucher you can either give to a friend, use now for another device, or save for later and use with upcoming new Sailfish X devices, like the Xperia 10 III in 2022.
(https://shop.jolla.com)
Technically, we are gradually moving to a new shop platform, which we will pilot first in the UK. With this change, we are able to expand even further, and you can expect more new market launches in the near future! We appreciate all feedback, both positive and negative, about the new platform, as it helps us to improve the shop experience.
Welcome aboard again UK!

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA. Sailfish OS Suomenlinna brings increased security, stability and reliability

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

(https://blog.jolla.com/suomenlinna/) Sailfish OS Suomenlinna brings increased security, stability and reliability
Nov 10th 2021, 07:00

Suomenlinna is a Fortress built spanning four islands in the Suomenlahti (Gulf of Finland) just South of Helsinki. While Jolla just celebrated its tenth year, (https://www.suomenlinna.fi/en/) Suomenlinna, which literally translates to Finnish Castle, is somewhat older. Construction was started 267 years ago, with many thousands of workers building for nearly ten years before it was completed. Nowadays it's designated as a World Heritage Site and you can visit it by ferry all year round to see it for yourself.
It's an appropriate codename for the Sailfish OS 4.3.0 Suomenlinna release given the emphasis we've placed on security improvements for this version of the operating system.
For while we saw a tranche of new features included in the (https://blog.jolla.com/verla/) Sailfish OS 4.2.0 Verla release, in 4.3.0 Suomenlinna it's much more about stability, bug-fixes and security improvements.
Deeper integration and improved security
The headline improvement is one that was already trailed by Ville in his recent (https://blog.jolla.com/whats-up-with-sandboxing/) Sandboxing blog post. From now on, any app that defines an application profile will be automatically sandboxed. This is currently an opt-in process; any app that isn't updated in this way will still run outside the sandbox. As a user this means you will start to see some third party apps bring up the sandboxing dialogue on first run. You should already be familiar with this from 4.2.0, in which the Jolla apps were already sandboxed. In 4.3.0 Suomenlinna you'll start to see this more often. Users can of course still run apps however they want, but can feel more confident when running apps inside the sandbox.
This is an important security advancement, and follows the roadmap Ville described towards having all apps sandboxed. We've been careful to increase security without compromising user-control, and we think you'll appreciate the extra peace-of-mind that sandboxing brings.
Updates to Android App Support
There have also been some welcome improvements to Android App Support in this release.
Behind-the-scenes the Android platform has been updated to security patch level 10.0.0_r58. In addition the Android system image is now signed, which means that apps that previously refused to run due to appearing as a rooted system should now work correctly. This is particularly important for banking apps, and a change that many users have been looking forward to.
On centre stage you'll see that Android Apps can now appear in the Open link or file dialogue. This means that when you try to open a file or link that an Android app knows about, you'll be invited to use the Android app alongside the native Sailfish apps that have also registered an interest. This continues the Sharing developments we made in 4.2.0 for native apps, now extended to Android apps in order to make their use more seamless and well-integrated with the rest of the system. This is still beta functionality at this stage since it can depend on the behaviour of individual apps, so expect it to be refined in future releases too.
(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2021/11/Suomenlinna_Screens_1.jpg)
Backstage there have also been numerous Android App Support bugs fixed for this release. The most prominent related to connectivity issues that some users have been experiencing. We've worked hard to try to address as many as we can, and were able to trace and fix several underlying connectivity issues. We've seen big improvements as a result, but continue to work on fixing more. Overall we believe it's a big step forwards for allowing Android apps to work effectively within Sailfish OS.
Stronger foundations and squashing bugs
There were many fixes outside of Android App Support as well, including improved memory efficiency for the email app, fixing some video playback bumps in the Gallery App, haptic feedback fixes, fixes for a word prediction bug that users of some specific languages were experiencing, and a bunch of fixes related to the captive portal for logging in to public Wifi access points. There are honestly way too many fixes to mention, but if you've been experiencing a particular bug on your device, hopefully it'll be one of the many we squashed this release.
Another big step forwards is the inclusion of Tracker 3 for indexing. The indexer is the service that runs in the background, looking for images, video and documents on your device so that interested apps can easily find and access them. The tracker has been pretty stable for a long time now, providing comprehensive coverage and rapid indexing speeds. We actually harness the (https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Tracker) Gnome Tracker for this, and since this was recently updated to Tracker 3, we wanted to follow suit as quickly as possible to benefit from all of the performance and security improvements it brings. So this is exactly what we did, bringing our version to 3.1.2. The jump to version three will also make future updates easier.
The browser has continued to advance, with several improvements made to the UI in this release based on both our own design plans and your feedback The previous release saw a new browser menu style designed to better accommodate all of the new functionality we've added recently. Following feedback we've added a handle following the style of those used elsewhere in the UI to make clear that the menu can be dragged; we've also made extending, scrolling and closing the menu more intuitive. We've also made a number of other improvements elsewhere, including support for camera permissions to allow better integration of the camera with websites that support it.
Last, but by no means least, with the Sailfish OS 4.3.0 Suomenlinna release we'll also for the first time be allowing the Amber Web Authorisation API for official use by apps in Harbour. This means that apps can now easily support OAuth authorisation using a standardised and supported process. This brings security benefits on multiple fronts since for services that support it there's now no need for apps to revert to more insecure password usage, or for developers to roll their own OAuth process.
We hope you'll agree that all of these changes are well worthwhile, even if they don't all appear as big changes in the user interface. Instead, the increased security, stability and reliability of the system represents an important quality advance that we think everyone will appreciate and benefit from.

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA. Happy Birthday Jolla!

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

(https://blog.jolla.com/happy-birthday-jolla/) Happy Birthday Jolla!
Oct 14th 2021, 12:00

Ten years back from today, our super excited founding crew including myself (Sami Pienimäki), Marc Dillon, Stefano Mosconi, Jussi Hurmola, and Antti Saarnio, took the founding papers of Jolla Ltd to the Finnish Patent and Registration Office, and the story of Jolla started officially. Soon after this, many individuals from the former MeeGo team joined the Jolla company to give birth to Sailfish OS.
I say 'officially' for Jolla, since as most of you know, the story had already begun years before this in the vibrant and enthusiastic MeeGo team at Nokia, and the passionate community around it. Back in 2010, Nokia was on full speed to make MeeGo its primary smartphone operating system, but after a change in strategy, MeeGo was discontinued in February 2011.
The 10 years of Jolla has been a spectacular ride with loads of significant milestones, unforgettable moments, ups and downs. Already from the beginning it was clearly a 'David vs. Goliath' type of story, which was very accurately pictured by the graphical designer of Helsingin Sanomat, the main daily newspaper in Finland:

(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2020/11/boats.png) Full page illustration in Helsingin Sanomat, the largest newspaper in Finland.

The origins of the company, the heritage from Nokia, the infamous burning platform memo, and the excitement of the team, were only a few reasons why the beginning of the company was BIG news worldwide. Jolla was on the cover of the New York Times, and Forbes, Financial Times, TechCrunch and several others started to follow our journey very closely. During the ten years, the media worldwide has written over 10,000 articles about our amazing and adventurous project.
From an outsider's perspective it might seem that Jolla has made huge changes and turns in its strategy along the ten years. Looking from inside, this is far from the truth. Jolla's eye has always been on the ball, in building and offering a true alternative open mobile operating system for the world. – one with fundamentally different values to the mainstream advertising or closed proprietary assets of Android and iOS.   The tactics, target groups etc. have changed and developed along the years, but the vision has always remained the same and clear: Jolla is to offer a Freedom of Choice with open approach.

The Next Chapter
Looking at the Jolla story on a timeline (below), you can clearly see the company's development and focus areas from the early MeeGo times and original Sailfish OS release in 2012, until the recent Sailfish 4, and new business line thinking.
(https://blog.jolla.com/content/uploads/2021/10/Timeline6.jpeg)
The current phase in Jolla's strategy is to continue to push further the Sailfish OS go-to-market operations, and secure new industrial clients for the asset to serve various corporate and governmental sectors.
A very interesting new strategic development area for Jolla in 2021 and further is our unique (https://jolla.com/appsupport) AppSupport for Linux Platforms. Having the capability to run both native Qt apps and common Android apps in one user experience and with consistent integration with the underlying platform has been a key feature in Sailfish OS from day one. Without it, Sailfish OS probably would not even exist to begin with. Jolla is now offering this technology also as a standalone product for various use cases, and there has already been significant interest e.g. in the automotive industry for it.

Sailfish X community program
Sailfish X is our designated community program offering all interested techies to enjoy always the latest & greatest Sailfish OS as their daily driver. As a part of the 10-year celebrations we also have a few great updates regarding Sailfish X for you:
Sailfish X sales expansion
Since the introduction of our community program (https://shop.jolla.com) Sailfish X, we've received lots of requests from all around the world for the product. We are now looking to expand the sales to several new markets around the world starting in early 2022. We are targeting to open the sales in phases e.g. in the US, Australia, New Zealand and re-open the sales to the UK.
The next reference device – Sony Xperia 10 IIIThe next reference device for Sailfish X will be the new Xperia 10 III, which we're working hard to bring available to all of you in early 2022.
10 year special discount
As a birthday treat, we also offer a special discount to all interested to experience Sailfish OS: get a (https://shop.jolla.com) Sailfish X license for your preferred device for only 34.90€! This is a limited time offer. See our (https://shop.jolla.com) shop for more details.

A massive thank you to YOU!
Jolla's story would not have been possible without a passionate and active developer community. Personally, and from the Jolla company, a HUGE THANK YOU for being part of this journey so far!
Thanks also to all our customers, partners, fans and followers – there are too many to mention by name, but you know who you are.
And finally, an extra BIG thank you to each and every one who has been a sailor during these 10 years. You have truly shown your love & passion to the company!
Online event today October 14, 2021: you can participate our 10 year celebration event in Berlin today at 6.30pm CET through our (https://www.facebook.com/jollaofficial/) Facebook Live event.
Let the sailing continue!
Your Jolla captain, sincerely,
Sami
