While I fully understand why the Jolla1 is a maintenance burden, I must say that the timing of this is bad. A year ago or so there was a discount when buying a new Sailfish license. I really tried to do that, but for one or another reason I disliked the available phones. Now the J1 is deprecated. What can I do now?
- buy one of the phones I disliked a year ago?
- buy a recent other phone and leave Sailfish?
One problem is that the only available options are still the same phones. And even if I would like one of them, they are already quite old in terms of mobile devices. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the newest supported phone is almost 2 years old.
I would very much welcome if we could get fix-updates (i.e. only version bumps of things like OpenSSL) for the J1 based on the current stable version for at least as long until a new phone is available.
