At the beginning of November, Tomas Vicik told us about a OTA-14 that will arrive with the main novelty of a more attractive application selector or a modified appearance of the Scopes by default. Yesterday, Vicik wrote an email to Softpedia talking about other new features that will arrive with the next update of Canonical's mobile operating system, such as that the background of the application selector has become somewhat blurry in the latest preview version of the OTA-14, something that Vicik says you will love Ubuntu Touch users.
Vicik is using the Ubuntu Touch channel version rc-proposed, and other news that will come to the next version of Ubuntu Touch will be new versions of the packages qtmultimedia y gst-plugins-bad0.10, which will enable support for the Opus audio codec. This shows, once again, that Canonical is not going very fast with the development of its mobile operating system, but that improvements are coming.
OTA-14 will be delayed and will arrive at the end of November
The bad thing is that Lukasz Zemczak reported to the community in their latest email that preparations for Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 are still underway, so users will have to wait longer than originally anticipated. According to Zemczak, the update will focus on fixing bugs and improve overall system performance.
Initially, the Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 launch was expected to take place today, November 14, but it seems that it will not. No official date has been given on when the launch will occur, but being in mid-November we can think that we will have to wait, at most, about two weeks in order to install the next version of Ubuntu Touch. As always, when we find out about something we will post it as soon as possible.
