  2. Pure Maps - just one major feature remaining (5 min -- asked by ddobrev) (sledges, 08:05:47)
    1. <ddobrev> Selection of routes is, in my opinion, the only remaining feature a fully functional mapping application needs that Pure Maps does not yet have. Let's discuss how Jolla can help turn it into its official built-in mapping application with @rinigus 's blessing. (sledges, 08:06:03)
    2. <Jolla> We agree with community this question was asked recently and the state still stays. (sledges, 08:16:09)
    3. https://github.com/rinigus/pure-maps/issues/58 (ddobrev, 08:24:39)
    4. <ViGe> That reminds me that we should update the list of recommended apps in Jolla Store some day, it's been a while since we have done that... (sledges, 08:25:16)
    5. <ViGe> we have already bumped Qt Location API as high as we can before updating to a more recent Qt version (sledges, 08:25:21)
    6. possibility to resurrect old Sailfish Maps, but keys/subscriptions will still be an issue to think through, regardless of a chosen app (sledges, 08:27:00)

  3. Bluetooth support in Android (5 min -- asked by ddobrev) (sledges, 08:33:43)
    1. <ddobrev> It's been a few months since I last brought it up -- let's see what the progress is. (sledges, 08:33:47)
    2. <Jolla> Sorry no update to give in Bluetooth area, focus has been on other topics during the autumn. (sledges, 08:33:56)

  4. Old Qt in the SDK (10 min -- asked by ddobrev) (sledges, 08:41:25)
    1. <ddobrev> Again an old (pun intended) topic but there are few new problems, rather the old ones stay unresolved. Qt 5.6 is unacceptably old for decent application development which dooms the Sailfish SDK to a slow death. (sledges, 08:41:29)
    2. <Jolla> We have Qt upgrade on the roadmap, but no update to give on short term. (sledges, 08:41:33)

  5. Status of VoLTE (5 min -- asked by keeperofthekeys) (sledges, 08:55:44)
    1. <keeperofthekeys> I just received a sunset message from my provider that all 2G and 3G networks in my country will be closed down (as per a govt decision) in the not too distant future and that I will need a phone supporting VoLTE to be able to continue making calls. (sledges, 08:55:51)
    2. <keeperofthekeys> So what is the status of this feature that has been "coming soon" almost since the JP1? For me this now changed from "nice to have" to "mandatory". (sledges, 08:56:03)
    3. <Jolla> VoLTE may have earlier appeared on some public roadmaps, but plans change. We have been aware of the importance of VoLTE, but this year has been really been the first time we have had a chance to commit proper resources to developing VoLTE support. (sledges, 08:56:20)
    4. <Jolla> The initial target is to enable VoLTE for Sony Xperia 10 II and III. We have been working on brand new telephony adaptation with the first priority to get on the feature parity with the existing devices. The work has been progressing steadily and the target is still to get VoLTE out during early 2022. (sledges, 08:56:38)
