Ubuntu Touch Q&A 79 Saturday 4th Of July At 19:00UTC
Can we have Erfan Abdi on the show, he has done a lot of work on halium 9, generated publicity on xda. So would be interesting to know what his future plans are and what is holding us back to have a halium 9 GSI phone as a phone with the same quality as halium 7. Maybe the project board of halium 9 can be filled with the major challenges https://github.com/orgs/ubports/projects/20
@wouter182, Erfan wasn't terribly comfortable with a video or audio interview in the past, especially not a live one. This is the same project that Alfred has been following, bringing updates for whenever he's with us.
Broken access to Gitlab account on UT smartphone. That's annoying. Do you know why ?
Qt guarantees binary compatibility via D-pointers. So, simply replacing the old Qt libraries with the new ones should not break anything. Is there any reason why only QtWebengine 5.14 is planned for OTA13? I would be happy to see the built-in markdown support from QtGUI 5.14 and QtQuick 5.14, as well.
Thank you for the answer.

I can just answer for vcf:
The import vcf file is already there but only accessible from outside ( that is you select your file in filemanager and open it in contact-app).
I've managed to provide this feature directly from contact app. Hope it will land soon, just waiting for review

@Thatoo - just a note that there is already a PR for including vcf import and export directly in the Contacts app - there is a click available for the beta you can test at https://t.me/ubports_qa_team/35166 -
(it has worked well on my tests of it for armhf on the Meizu Pro 5.)

are there plans to bring flutter support to Ubuntu Touch, Fluffychats new features and functions come in the flutter version of Fluffychat, and it'd be lovely to get all these fancy flashy features and get full support back on Ubuntu Touch.

Did you managed to add export in VCF too?

Please note this thread is for questions for the Q&A and is not the place for support questions and answers. Also that this still applies...Please remember that questions on porting to device **** or it's status, and questions on bugs will not be answered

@Keneda yes also done
Some pinephones have stability issues at the high dram frequency the images have. How will you address this for future non tech savvy users?

@farkasdvd There are plans to upgrade Qt, but "binary compatibility" is not as simple as that. There are plenty of things using private APIs (because they have to).
Please talk about camera update. I don't really need it but could be awesome to see it working, plus if you see now It can work as stated here: https://gitlab.com/ubports/community-ports/pinephone/-/issues/37
What do You think about ICE contacts and medical information quick access on lockscreen?

@UBportsNews Issue resolution process
Looking at all the issues, is there a process in place to decide which issues will be solved in which release, let's say prioritize them?
Gitlab has a nice board for this. It would help to focus efforts. There are for example many issue related to 2G/3G/4G, like 172, 152, 140, 120, 57. They could be all related.
Proposal for review
- tag all issues using predefined tags
- organize the board to see which issues are solved per OTA release
- voting system? (bug bounty). Which developer fixes which issues.
Maybe all of this is already in place, but I could not find it.
Please give us an update on the improvements that have recently been merged into the armhf and arm64 root file systems, as well as those you expect to land in the immediate future.
@dobey Thanks, I did not know that. It makes sense that there are binary compatibility issues if the D-pointer pattern is ignored
Could you give me an example where the private API is used?
