Ubuntu Touch OTA-15 Changelog
What follows is a near-complete list of changes from Ubuntu Touch team members between OTA-14 and OTA-15. It does not include changes to core apps, though. OTA-15 is slated for release on Wednesday, December 16.
Better prose release notes will be available on the UBports Blog, as always.
I compile these manually with a GitHub search, so please let me know if you think of a better way...
I spared you the changes to Jenkins configuration files for many, many components. I also left off the many changes to make our build infrastructure better in general. Those likely aren't interesting to you as a user of Ubuntu Touch but they do make our contributors' lives easier!
