  • Community

    Hello everyone!

    We're going to have a Community Q&A tomorrow starting at 1800 UTC! You can find a countdown on the video page here.

    You can also see the time converted to your local time zone here.

    The following is a list of questions that I'm gathering up from other platforms. If you have any questions and a forum account, feel free to post them below! If you don't have an account, hit us up wherever you do (or make a forum account, this place is super hip and trendy).

    • What's your plan for supporting old devices?

  • Hello all! My few questions:

    1. What will happen with the applications store now that Cannonical had refused to continue UT support?
    2. How will all the infrastructure of OTA updates will function from now on? Will it be possible to install new updates without reinstalling the UT 'by-wire' ?
    3. What would be the porbable steps one has to make to 'connect' to new updates and app. store infrastructure?

    Thank you for your time!

  • Which mobile phone do you recommend I buy? The device status for Nexus 5 (hammerhead) is "Released" whereas for Nexus 5X (bullhead) is "Waiting". When will the porting work for Nexus 5X be completed?

    Plasma Mobile has already been ported to both devices. Furthermore, Nexus 5X is guaranteed to receive Android version updates until September 2017.

  • Will you still support the tablet BQ M10 FHD?
    As far as I know, that was the Canonical development device, because I already flushed mine with the staging channel and had Unity 8 on it.
    The only reason why I bought this tablet was to have Ubuntu on it.
    Will you continue this tablet and do you have a channel to flush it with?


  • Do we still want to make Mir run on top of Wayland, if Canonical is going to keep working on Mir ?
    So the end goal is running directly on top of Wayland ?
    What's the option for Meizu Pro 5, if we can't get the Android source ? Is having someone Reverse Engineering the binary blobs an option ? That seems a better long-term solution...

    Maybe a FAQ could be a good idea ?
