Phosh 0.14.0 arrives with support for splash screens

posh 0.14.0

The development of desktops, applications, and ultimately Linux-based mobile operating systems continues slowly but surely; slowly but with good handwriting. The most advanced student does not seem to be the most handsome, at least when the classroom is a tablet, but it is the one that offers the best user experience. The GNOME Mobile Edition has recently launched a new major update, a Phosh 0.14.0 that introduces a very attractive novelty.

Practically from the beginning, or I have always seen it that way, when opening an application in Plasma Mobile we see a welcome screen, an image that shows the application icon on a background with a similar color. That "splash screen" has officially reached Phosh 0.14.0 in what is the most outstanding novelty. It is not something that improves operation or performance, but it does offer better sensations.

Highlights of Phosh 0.14.0

  • App launch / welcome image support.
  • Media player widget search buttons.
  • Shell fading on startup to prevent flickering.
  • Indication of Wifi hotspot mode on the top bar.
  • The music player stops when the headphones are unplugged.
  • Moved the option "Show all applications" to the bottom.
  • Improvements in the interface of the media player widget.
  • The app icons in activities are now centered.
  • The test suite generates screenshots.
  • Better handling of app_id.
  • Some improvements in the representation of activities.
  • Proximity sensor bug fix.
  • Some other leaks and bug fixes.

Phosh 0.14.0 is now available as an update in some systems like postmarket OS or Arch Linux ARM, and will soon be coming to others like Manjaro. In the distributions that have already arrived, it can be installed from the new IMG image or updating from the same operating system, which is recommended to do from the terminal.
