> Hello,
> Today (Oct 6th) at 17:00 UTC we have published new installers and
> repositories of the Sailfish OS SDK. This SDK release is called 1609 and it
> matches Jolla Release 2.0.4.
> From now on the SDK releases will be in sync with the early access
> releases of Sailfish OS. It means, that developers can now choose between
> the SDK update intervals. By switching to the Early Access SDK developers
> will get SDK updates in sync with the Sailfish OS early access releases.
> Otherwise, as before, they will get the SDK updates in sync with the
> official public Sailfish OS releases.
> Please, read the following notes about the Early Access SDK:
> - By using the Early Access SDK developers can test their Sailfish OS apps
> approximately a week before the Sailfish OS release is made public
> - During the early access time the Early Access SDK should not be used for
> submitting apps to the Jolla Harbour
> - The installers for this release of the SDK are available at
> http://sailfishos.org/wiki/Application_SDK_Early_Access#
> Latest_Early_Access_SDK_Release
> - Instructions for adding the early access repository into the SDK can be
> found from http://sailfishos.org/wiki/Application_SDK_Early_Access#
> Receiving_Early_Access_SDK_Updates_Automatically
> If you add the early access repository into your SDK and have an older
> beta release of the SDK, you should see an update notification in the
> Sailfish OS IDE. Otherwise, you will see an update notification in the
> Sailfish OS IDE, when the Jolla Release 2.0.4 is publicly available to all
> users.
> SDK content matches Jolla Release (Fiskarsinjoki). 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.
> - For more information, please see the SDK Beta-Qt5 known issues list.
> Release Content
> SDK IDE (Qt Creator)
> - Qt Creator updated to version 4.0.1
> - Official Turing Phone support
> - Updates to Emulator mode switching
> - Refreshed API documentation available in the Help mode (Ctrl+7) in Qt
> Creator to Jolla release level
> SDK Build engine
> - Build targets refreshed to Jolla release level
> - Harbour RPM validator updated
> Emulator
> - Emulator packages refreshed to Jolla release level
> - Fixes to matching Emulator UI assets with the corresponding device UI
> assets
> If you have any questions, feel free to either send an email to this
> mailing list: devel at lists.sailfishos.org, write it up in
> http://together.jolla.com and tag your issue with 'sdk' or send an e-mail
> to developer-care at jolla.com.
