The community de UBports announced yesterday the availability for public testing of Ubuntu Touch OTA-11, Ubuntu's mobile system for all supported phones.
Originally planned as a small update that would only fix a few bugs and add simple improvements, Ubuntu Touch OTA-11 brings more than that to Ubuntu phones, such as a smarter and faster keyboard which introduces the Dvorak template, and improves the templates for Japanese and Polish, as well as a new way of editing texts.
Using this feature, you can hover over text and undo or redo actions, move a selection rectangle, and use cut, copy, and paste commands, all from the same layout. You only need to press the space bar. We are still unsure of how this upgrade will work, so it could have changes. " Mention UBports.
Browser and notification improvements
The browser developed at home, Morph Browser, also received some improvements during the development cycle of the OTA-11 update, among which we find the option to "Always allow" or "Always deny" when a site requests access to location data, the ability to block access to certain sites and support for various sites to launch applications using similar "tel: //" addresses to open the phone.
Ubuntu Touch OTA-11 also brings improvements in notifications for everyone, without requiring an Ubuntu One account, support for more devices powered by Android 7.1, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth fixes for the Nexus 5 so they no longer consume so much battery and CPU, and improvements in MMS messages.
