More than two and a half months after the v0.14.0, we already have a new release of the mobile version of GNOME available. Is about Phosh 0.15.0, and although the first number is still zero, we are facing a major update. Among the novelties, which are not few, perhaps the complete support for VPN authentication stands out. With this change, we will now see a text at the top with which we will know that we are connected to a Virtual Private Network.
What they have also introduced is a quick setting to be able to connect to the VPN from the menu that appears when you slide from the top, as long as we have a VPN configured in the settings. No less important is the fact that it supports the WireGuard protocol.
Highlights of Phosh 0.15.0
- Full VPN support.
- Swipe gesture to remove notifications.
- Arbitrary passwords can now be used on the lock screen, for which we will have to access from a new button that appears on the keyboard.
- The OSK virtual keyboard now has a surface that animates when it is shown or hidden.
- Settings now hide the Docked quick setting (connected to a keyboard) when not used in this mode.
- If our device does not have a flash, the torch button disappears from the quick settings.
- Added a speaker icon to the volume slider.
- Improved overview mode.
- The occasion has been used to correct many bugs and the translations have been improved.
Users interested in using Phosh 0.15.0 you can download it from this link, although personally I would recommend waiting for the new packages to appear in the usual update system, that is, from the operating system itself. Taking into account that most devices are now with beta software, the new version should arrive in the next few hours or days.
