Ubuntu OTA-14 Released, Fixes A Number Of Bugs
Written by Michael Larabel in Ubuntu on 7 December 2016 at 06:16 AM EST. 12 Comments
It is arriving a few weeks late, but the latest over-the-air update to Ubuntu Touch is now available for the select Ubuntu phones and tablets this holiday season.

New features to Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 include a new Unity 8 spread design, Oxide 1.17 web engine library, and supporting the Opus audio codec via Qt Multimedia. The Opus audio codec support is arguably the biggest feature of Ubuntu OTA-14.

Notable fixes in Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 include properly receiving SMS notifications when the phone is locked, the device appearing off during image updates, a fix for vibrations when other vibrations are enabled, alarm issues, and more.

Ɓukasz Zemczak explained in the release announcement, "This time not so many changes released in overall but with the goal of introducing less regressions. Also, the commitlog for this release isn't too verbose due to multiple different cherry-picking we had to do during the release."

The list of bugs fixed by Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 can be found via Launchpad.net. The Ubuntu Wiki has more OTA-14 details.
