sailfish-logoJolla heeft op op SailfishOS.org een Development Roadmap gepubliceerd van de vele zaken waaraan momenteel wordt gewerkt in SailfishOS. De roadmap geeft inzage in de korte en middelkorte planning, verdeelt in Q1 2015, Q2 2015 en Q3 2015. Daarnaast is er een verdere verdeling gemaakt in Sailfish UI en Platform. De lijst wordt met enige regelmaat bijgewerkt, al is er niet veel duidelijk over hoe vaak. Wel kunnen we via de lijst zien welke onderdelen in de planning staan, welke reeds zijn gebouwd, maar nog niet gereleased en welke vrijgegeven via SailfishOS updates.

Zo verzameld is het best een indrukwekkende lijst. Zeker als je bedenkt dat er gewerkt wordt aan zowel de ontwikkeling van SailfishOS 2.0 voor de aanstaande tablet als aan verbeteringen voor de Jolla telefoon.
