Jolla releases update 5 for the Sailfish OS

The Sailfish OS bu Jolla gets an update 5 which has been dubbed as the Paarlampi. It is basically a completely new firmware which is going to bring some new functionality to the OS and since it comes as an update, it will also positively solve the shortcomings of the previous version. The new 1.0.5.16 version of the Sailfish OS will allow the users of the Jolla smartphone users two-way sync Exchange contacts which is not a very common feature. They can also set a default account for sending emails.

MMS functionality, which is a key point, was missing from the previous version and now it has been brought to the OS and will also allow users to receive carrier access point settings OTA. The EXIF data will be stored with the pictures taken from the camera of Jolla smartphones and one other change is going to be the ability to save thePS coordinates of the images they have captured with their handset. Apart from this, Swipe to close gesture, visual interaction hints, and keyboard sounds are the few other features which form part of the new firmware.

As we mentioned earlier, the shortcomings have been taken care of and similarly the bug fixes have also come in a great number. The most needed one is the security fix which addresses the OpenSSL “heartbleed” bug which set the web and the social networks on fire over the past week.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
