[release notes] Koli 4.0.1

I was away from Salfish with my XperiaX. I installed Android on it. After 4 month I installed Sailfish again, and I am happy now. Everything works like it should. Android was good, but I like Sailfish is better on this phone. Good to be back. Thank you.

[UPDATE] Fixed by removing (or unmount it via Settings) SD card (looks like something wrong with binding of it to android).

Devs please have a look: https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/4-0-1-48-most-of-android-apps-stopped-working-after-update/5156/13

After upgrade on 4.0.1.49 almost all android apps not able to start or dies after any clicks.
Xperia XA2+ (no gapps, no openrepos apps, clean vanilla)

Wow wow!! I’ve just noticed that after more than 5 years, the sneak peek feature is back to its full potential!! :heart_eyes:
Peeking finally works again like in SFOS 1.0: the foreground app continues to run normally, i.e. the video you’re watching will continue to play in transparency while you check your notifications or the time :slightly_smiling_face:

I don’t see any mention of “peek” in the changelog so it was maybe done in 3.4 already, but thanks to whoever brought that back. Original report for posterity :slight_smile:
Edit: confirmed with my Jolla 1 that it was already there is 3.4.

Hmm, no it is not missing. There is the button “Clear learned words” under the subheading of “Text prediction”.

Do you have “Predictive text input” installed (Jolla Store > My apps)?

Thanks @jovirkku! You are spot on. This package is not installed. Sorry for the noise.

Thanks. Please note that installing the predictive text input is somewhat peculiar: after installing it from Jolla Store you will need to restart the phone before that app is fully in effect.
