Attending a meeting / conference could be interesting I would think but I won’t be taking someone’s spot there.

I think I have no right being there for I’m not active enough here, still haven’t been able to attend an IRC meeting, and life is still getting in the way in some way ; ) Also: I don’t have the means to get to Brussels. Besides I’m representing more the kind of group of people who don’t know much as you’ll see in my messages on here.

I hope and pray things will go well for you and that you will have a blast.


There are libraries and components of SFOS that are dated and could use a bit of an update. Those affect many other areas of SFOS -and considered big work items- and i just wanted to know if there are any news, plans or discussions about them.

Ie. even localization is problematic with SFOS (for example i cant have word prediction in my native language). Our systemd is old and newer versions introduced features that could come handy etc.

I see. So base system updates.

IIRC there are one or two key components blocking upgrades of a few crucial libraries, which then cascades through the whole OS.


AFAIK there is some reported work on OpenSSL 3 series, but that is all I know; as for systemd, it heavily relies on newer kernels, so Jolla would have to either:

  • Drop support for the Xperia X (they refused to upgrade it to 4.4 or 4.9, even if the code is available)
  • Patch the living daylight out of systemd

For the compositor, I am not sure what you mean there or are looking forward to. Qt upgrade for newer QtWayland is never going to happen.

Hmm, this could be the proprietary plugin more than anything. Maybe a feature request would help?


You can write your own compositor without a toolkit as far as i understand and then there are libraries that help with that (wlroots). Bigger task than using a toolkit but i don’t see another way forward since QT is not going to be updated anytime soon.

Ah, sorry @Louis, Daniel is on the list, it was just an error when writing my message just now.

Do you or Daniel have any dietary requirements?
