It has been a while since we had news about Ubuntu Phone OTAs, but although we have not heard anything, the truth is that the Ubuntu Touch project team has continued working on it. Thus, in a few days, the OTA-11 is expected to be launched, a new OTA that will surely impress more than one.
Regrettably OTA-11 will not include the Dash Browser Scopes that we are talking about the other day, but if they will include interesting news that will make the terminals with Ubuntu Phone more powerful. So one of those first changes that there will be will be the inclusion of Aethercast technology.Technology Aethercast combines the Miracast protocol and Wi-Fi Display, which will allow Ubuntu Phone smartphones to connect to smart TVs. The call application has also been changed, in such a way that now the panel is more attractive and functional for people who have vision problems.
The OTA-11 improves some functions such as the calendar or the system date and time
Unity 8, the desktop that is in Ubuntu Phone, will also be modified in this OTA-11, in such a way that now we have a better calendar, an improved date indicator, the inclusion of themes for the desktop and the arrangement of applications in a grid, something useful for tablet users with Ubuntu Phone.
The OTA-11 will include application updates such as XMir or XOrg Server, applications that are also present in Ubuntu Touch although we do not create it. Unfortunately we do not know exactly the release date of the OTA-11, it is speculated that today the version could be frozen for a few days later to go to mobile phones, but it is something that we still do not know exactly, although everything indicates that the update will come out earlier for the summer to begin. The latest Ubuntu Phone OTAs are making mobiles with this operating system improve at times. And now with the inclusion of Aethercast, working as a desktop computer is going to be very interesting Do not you think?
