Jolla outs Tahkalampi - update 8 for its Sailfish OS

15 July, 2014

Last month Jolla released the major Saapunki firmware, which combined the planned 6 and 7 updates into one. The company also promised to bring update 8 in July and it is now rolling out, just as scheduled.

The new update 8 for the Sailfish OS is called Tahkalampi and improves the user experience with Android apps among other things. Here is the official changelog:

  • Easily switch between open Android apps in the homescreen by tapping on their respective active covers i.e they are no longer grouped into one cover (experimental)
  • Add shortcuts to webpages in the app launcher area
  • Set separate synchronization schedules per mail account
  • Upload multiple files via Browser and be able to filter files by file type during file selection
  • Define email signature and sender name per account
  • Save unsent messages as drafts when messages app is pushed to background
  • Search word auto-completion in Jolla Store
  • Use stroke input method for writing in Chinese
  • Define an end date when creating/modifying recurring calendar events
  • Artist search support in Media player

You can find more highlights and improvements over at the official page for the Tahkalampi update.

Jolla has previously announced that the next update 9 will come in late August or early September.

Thanks, Sepehr James Noori, for the tip!
