  2. Upgrading to Bluez 5 (5 minutes, asked by: ArmsOfSorrow) (Jaymzz, 09:06:06)
    1. Is there a plan/timeframe to update to bluez 5? I'm developing an application using QtBluetooth and I'd like to use the same connection setup code for Linux PC, Sailfish and Android, but that library does not work in Sailfish and I was told it's not going to be fixed for bluez 4. Also, is there anything I, as a developer, can contribute to that issue? (Jaymzz, 09:06:14)
    2. Work is ongoing to update to BlueZ5 (Jaymzz, 09:09:32)
    3. https://git.merproject.org/jpoutiai/bluez5 + https://git.merproject.org/jpoutiai/ofono + https://git.merproject.org/mer-core/kf5bluezqt (Jaymzz, 09:09:41)
    4. Bluez5 is not ready yet for next update, but 2.0.5 or 2.0.6 are likely candidates (Jaymzz, 09:10:36)
    5. We target to have BT LE (Jaymzz, 09:11:37)

  3. Mobile Data expansion (5-10 minutes, asked by nh1402 / nh1402_work ) (Jaymzz, 09:12:08)
    1. have an option to track mobile data usage, with time period, so if you're on a contract or pay as you go and have a limited data allowance, and have a regular renewal period, you put in the time period when it resets, and tracks your data usage. (this has probably been mentioned before, but the next thing has not), Also why don't we add a messaging mode option, under Mobile data, so if you're only planning to message people via (Jaymzz, 09:12:20)
    2. some part of this is being worked on at the moment, no ETA yet (Jaymzz, 09:14:14)
    3. https://git.merproject.org/mer-core/connectionagent (Jaymzz, 09:14:27)
    4. the usage monitoring + limits is what is currently being worked on via connectionagent (plus UI in the jolla-settings app) (Jaymzz, 09:17:39)
    5. https://together.jolla.com/question/82959/mobile-data-usage-limitbackground-data-usage-toggle/ (Jaymzz, 09:20:45)
    6. plan is to use a hard limit on total data usage, no per app limits at this stage (Jaymzz, 09:25:48)

  4. Updates to the Intex Aqua Fish and the role of Intex in pushing updates (5-10 minutes, Asked by kat6 ) (Jaymzz, 09:29:22)
    1. There has been no communication about whether or not the Aqua Fish will be receiving updates as and when released. There have also been reports that enabling Early access to Sailfish OS releases does not work on the Aqua Fish (I haven't yet verified this). Also, will it be routed through Intex? Speaking of Intex, there is enabled, a repo by the name customer-intex. I assume Intex decides what to push through there. Is there any (Jaymzz, 09:29:32)
    2. We target to make updates available together with Intex. (veskuh, 09:32:55)
    3. The updates would come from Jolla, but it will be collaboration with Intex. (veskuh, 09:33:30)
    4. our target is to have SW as close as possible for all variants and phones. (Jaymzz, 09:39:18)

  5. General Discussion (10 minutes) (Jaymzz, 09:39:48)
    1. Qt 5.6 Upgrade is going quite well as far as we know (Jaymzz, 09:49:01)
