Yesterday I upgraded my FP4 to a version that was found by updater, v1.5.1-s. Given that only a minor version was upgraded, I unfortunately didn’t investigate much before I did it… Now:
- the top screen settings are uglyfied (big buttons, white background instead of semitransparent) and were rearranged
- in the list of opened apps, background is also white instead of semitransparent
- turning screen on does some weird and inconsistent animation (looks like the screen is not functioning correctly)
Worst of all, I can’t find this release in the release notes: Releases · e / os / releases · GitLab
The link in the upgrader points to a 404 page: https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/os/releases/-/releases/v1.5-s
Is this release intented or is it something that slipped through QA? I would expect minor version upgrades to not alter UX. Also, how come that release notes are missing? Have I been hacked?
P.S.: I see that I can no longer take screenshots from the screen with the list of opened apps either (not sure which upgrade broke that).
I vaguely remember seeing v1.5-s on the releases list when I checked some while ago, but I’m not sure. However, the release tag still exists on GitLab: Commits · v1.5.1-s · e / os / releases · GitLab
The v1.5.1-s version is also still listed here for the “S dev” ROM build: /e/ image ROM download
My guess is that the release was removed from the list? Maybe you’re right about the QA. Hopefully v1.6-s becomes available soon, I’m also waiting for the OTA to show up. I’m currently running v1.5.1-s on my FP4, but I don’t see any of the issues you mentioned (I installed it directly from the ROM though.) Maybe the update broke something on you phone?
It’s intended. It brought Android 12 (S) to a bunch of devices.
Yes, definitely Android 12 .
That would be what slipped through QA, it seems.
Thank you, that explains it!
In that case the changes would land sooner or later, so I might just as well get used to them…
Anyway, good to know it was an oversight and I’m not hacked.
