Development is Underway For Ubuntu Touch OTA-12
Developers responsible for the development and maintenance of Ubuntu Touch operating system which is platform designed and built using latest technologies that Canonical could choke up are extensively working on the next big OTA update for Ubuntu phones and tablets.
The company designed Ubuntu Touch to be future proof with convergence in mind as technology slowly step away from the traditional desktop systems to more convertible mobile devices that can double up both as a handset and a desktop computer.
Canonicals’ Łukasz Zemcza has informed Ubuntu Touch followers that work on OTA-12 has already kicked off with the first changes landing in the devel channels for early adopters and testers.
Changes include a new updated version of the Ubuntu System Settings applications which now no longer contains the extra Vibration for the panel selection – an option deemed redundant – as well as a new release of the UbuntuOne Credential app.
There will be more changes expected during the course of the coming days and weeks as the developers continue to work on new improvements to the Ubuntu mobile platform.
The most important detail about the development of OTA-12 that came from the announcement made by Łukasz Zemcza is that users are urged not to expect too many new features as this update is mostly geared towards bug fixes.
The first Ubuntu exclusive tablet didn’t do so well when it was reviewed with many paning its performance with tasks. It won’t be a surprise if Canonical is looking into ways make the tablet more usable and less resource intensive as this could attract non-Ubuntu fans to the platform.
