        Congratulations on a great release, and thank you for all your hard work. Much appreciated!

        I realize that you're simultaneously working on about thousand projects, and I'm confident that you know far better than I do what should be your next focus. Even so, I can't help but express what at least one of your fans (me ) hopes you'll focus on in the coming months, namely:
        1. upgrading to the latest Qt;
        2. removing the remaining dependencies on the mirclient API;
        3. upgrading to Mir 1.8+;
        4. moving from upstart to systemd (in anticipation for a future rebase from Ubuntu 16.04 to 20.04); and
        5. as soon as feasible, rebasing from 16.04 to 20.04.
        And, yep, I realize that you're already focusing on much of the above. But I wanted you to know that at least one of your fans (me ) is cheering for you! Ganbatte kudasai!

          Mario, quoting from the release announcement: "*other 'upcoming but unannounced hardware' *" ... real things coming up?

            Not that I own a PinePhone or Librem (sorry, but software and price aside: That thing is just too much of a brick) but I am intrigued by the possibility of having a fully open source Linux phone. However, how is the hardware support these days? Last time I checked, battery life was abysmal, the baseband hardly worked, the GUI was slow, and the camera wasn't recognized at all. Any updates in that regard?

              It seems like good work. As a Unity-nostalgic, maybe I'll try it back some day.

              But that new Lomiri name, it's just plain terrible. Please let us have them reconsider, it can't get worse than that.

                I use it daily on my Fairphwell2 and it works really well! Thank you for the good job!

                  I agree: I too hate the new name, despite how great the OS itself is

                    Are you saying that it's currently a fully functional OS ready for end users? Are there any functionalities that are still missing?
