Linux News Today: Ubuntu Touch OTA-7 Testing Continues, the Update Should Arrive Next Week
We have just been informed by Łukasz Zemczak from Canonical about the latest work done by the Ubuntu Touch developers in preparation for the upcoming OTA-7 software update.
According to Mr. Zemczak’s email received by Softpedia, the testing of Ubuntu Touch OTA-7 continues at fast pace, and the developers are fixing any bugs that occurred during the testing sessions.
For example, a critical issues has been uncovered in the last Release Candidate build of the OTA-7 images, a boot problem with the core_pattern component that occurred when crash reporting was enabled by default.
The developers are now working hard to fix this issue before the final build of OTA-7 gets out, and keep the crash reporting functionality enabled. Tomorrow we should have more news about the fix.
“A late and short update today. The OTA-7 image testing continues – so far things look ‘rather’ good, although QA has reported one pretty critical issue on the latest candidate: bug #1505302,” says Łukasz Zemczak.
Łukasz Zemczak is confident that the Ubuntu Touch OTA-7 software update will make it on time for the October 19 release, as scheduled initially, despite the fact that critical bugs are uncovered during QA testing. OTA-7 is a free over-the-air update for all Ubuntu phone users, including BQ Aquaris E4.5, BQ Aquaris E5 HD, Meizu MX4, and Nexus 4.
