Ubuntu Touch OTA-11 will be delayed for a week; soon to be worked on OTA-12

Ubuntu Touch

If there is something that has become clear to us about Ubuntu Touch is that Canonical does not want to go too fast so as not to make mistakes that they may regret. At the moment, the latest version available is OTA-10.1, a version labeled "hotfix", which means it was released to polish the system. The next version to launch will already be OTA-11, but it seems that it will take a little more patience.

Canonical's Lukasz Zemczak informed the Ubuntu Touch community yesterday that the Release Candidate (RC) image of the upcoming software update, OTA-11 could be made available to anyone who wants to test it out later this week. , and the reason is that its development is going very slowly. The release of the final version will be delayed a week.

OTA-11 is expected for the first week of June

OTA-11 is not ready for an RC, but all the necessary fixes are done in silos, so we might expect it to be fine for a Release Candidate release tomorrow. The bad news is that all of this could affect the release date as well, possibly for a week. Well, sometimes problems like these cannot be easily avoided.

Zemczak did not give an exact date, but everything seems to indicate that the OTA-11, which was scheduled for the end of May, will finally be launched in the first week of June. What has not changed, logically, is for which devices it will be available, and the OTA-11 will be able to be installed on all compatible Ubuntu Phones and the first converged tablet, the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition.

On the other hand, the Ubuntu Touch developers are ready to begin development of the next update of Canonical's mobile operating system, the OTA-12, a larger version is expected to include important new features.
