Hello again,

Today (January 5th) at 14:00 UTC we have published new installers and 
repositories of the Sailfish OS SDK.

The installers for this release of the SDK are available at 
http://www.sailfishos.org. If you have an older beta or alpha release of 
the SDK, you should see an update notification in the SailfishOS IDE.

SDK content has been updated to match Jolla Release Please see 
below for detailed information of the changes.

A couple of things you should be aware of:
- As before, in this update the build engine, emulator and targets are 
reinstalled so you will lose all changes you may have made in those - 
However, if your application packaging is done correctly, rebuilding 
your projects should reinstall the packages you have been using.
- Any customization done to SDK (adding new package repositories, adding 
custom targets, additional source paths) will be removed during the 
installation process so make your own backup of those before starting 
the update.
- If you import existing projects made with a previous version of the 
Sailfish OS SDK, make sure to select the correct kit in the project 
configuration step. Both ARM and i486 kits are available.
- Package repository contents have been updated and consequently using a 
previous SDK version with these package repositories is not supported.
- Supported host platforms can be found from:
