It’s been a while since we heard about the Ubuntu Phone OTAs, but even though we didn’t know anything, the truth is that the Ubuntu Touch project team has been working on it. So in a few days is expected to launch the OTA-11, a new OTA that will surely impress more than one.
Unfortunately the OTA-11 it will not include the Dash Browser Scopes we talked about the other day, but it will include interesting news that will make the terminals with Ubuntu Phone more powerful. So one of those first changes there will be the inclusion of Aethercast technology.technology Aethercast combines the Miracast protocol and Wi-Fi Display, Which will allow smartphones with Ubuntu Phone to connect to smart TVs. The calling app has also been changed, so that now the panel is more flashy and functional for people who have vision problems.
The OTA-11 enhances some features such as the calendar or system date and time
Unity 8, the desktop that is on Ubuntu Phone, will also be modified in this OTA-11, so we now have a better calendar, an improved date indicator, The inclusion of themes for the desktop and the provision of grid applications, something useful for tablet users with Ubuntu Phone.
The OTA-11 will include application updates like XMir or xorg Server, Applications that are also present in Ubuntu Touch although we do not believe it. Unfortunately we do not know the exact release date of the OTA-11, it is speculated that today could freeze the version for a few days after coming out on mobile, but it is something we do not yet know exactly, although everything points to the update will come out before summer starts. The latest OTA s from Ubuntu Phone are doing just that mobiles with this operating system improve at times. And now with the inclusion of Aethercast, running as a desktop team will be very interesting Don’t you believe?
