Jolla's Sailfish OS Gains a Second Edition
Jolla today announced Sailfish OS 2.0, which brings a handful of improvements to the smartphone platform. To start, the OS is more compatible with Android applications thanks to a stronger technical core. Further, the platform now supports Intel processors, including Intel's new x3 chip. Jolla improved the platform's multitasking capabilities, tweaked the user interface, added privacy and personalization features, and simplified interacting with notifications thanks to swiping gestures. Jolla said the improved OS is meant to provide a more premium experience. Along with the updated operating system, Jolla said is inviting companies to join the Sailfish Alliance to help build out a larger ecosystem to support the operating system. Jolla is a Finnish company formed by ex-Nokia employees. Sailfish was born from Nokia's discarded Maemo and Moblin Linux platforms.
