  2. sailfishos Qt5 upgrade (15 min – by pasik) (Jaymzz, 08:06:19)
    1. community is curious about the current plans and timeframe for sfos Qt5 upgrade, especially with the rest of the sfos toolstack recently upgraded. Newer Qt5 version would obviously help developing native apps and porting existing Qt5 apps more easily to sfos. In earlier meetings it was mentioned Qt licensing isn't a problem anymore for sfos community devices, so that's hopefully sorted out now? Is it likely sfos moves d (Jaymzz, 08:06:34)
    2. As you have noted we did preparation work for Qt 5.9 earlier. The current plan is still to proceed step by step, but we are not announcing any schedule for the update. (Jaymzz, 08:06:55)
    3. community would like to know which version of Qt we plan to upgrade to. (Jaymzz, 08:20:07)

  3. sailfishos wayland compositor and xdg-shell protocol upgrade (15 min – by pasik) (Jaymzz, 08:24:44)
    1. current plans and timeframe for sfos QtWayland and lipstick compositor upgrade to support wayland xdg-shell protocol, which is commonly used these days, and required by for example many flatpak apps which use Gtk/Gdk. (Jaymzz, 08:24:53)
    2. We are considering this along with lipstick architecture work that we are planning, xdg-shell may be supported in that work. We are not giving any estimate on when this may happen. (Jaymzz, 08:25:13)
    3. community wants to help with xdg-shell if they can (abranson, 08:42:46)

  4. Inclusion of avahi on the official sailfish repos (5 min – by ApBBB) (Jaymzz, 08:47:29)
    1. Its quite a useful utility (far easier sshing into something with host name than IP) So its basically a request. Also if there is something prohibiting its inclusion and what can be done to have it in. (Jaymzz, 08:47:38)
    2. While avahi might be nice, it raises potential security issues, which needs to be considered. It should be anyway allowed in wifi only and then potentially filtered in local network. While doing this in local network you can assign static ip's either on device end or from your dhcp server and when you can easily also get name based access by adding the ip to either hosts file or in the .ssh/config for example. Thus curr (Jaymzz, 08:47:49)
