V1 release date?

e-roadmap

#1

Wondering if there is a time-line for the first full release. Or is that too far off to say at this point?


Will Tablets eventually be supported?
#2

@smth if you are on the /e/ ROM hope you are checking the change logs. While the builds are already stable there are a number of changes to apps and existing functionality being added to each build. Along with that we are also knocking off a few of the critical bugs. All that is slightly delaying off the release of v1.


#3

I’m not currently using /e/. Hoping to switch to it soon. From what I’ve seen of the roadmap I’m guessing v1 is approaching, and so probably worth waiting for, at this point (but an estimate would make that decision easier).


#4

Is there an ETA or a roadmap now?


#5

For v1 we do not have an ETA.The server migration and stabilization is still in progress. You will get the final release date on the telegram channels once it is decided.


#6

Can you say when the app market will be released?


#7

Ironically, it is the app repository development that is in someways causing the delay. The server migration and stabilization I mentioned that is still going on was for the app repository. The development team is working to close it out ASAP.


#8

Is moving the upstream to LineageOS 16 on a roadmap anywhere?

(I’m curious, not complaining - saying “we want to release /e/ v1 before looking into that” is a perfectly fine answer)


#9

Hi @Treer some of the items on the road map are - uninstallable system apps, upgrade to Pie, an innovative setup allowing user the option to select what type of apps he/she would want from basic to advanced and last but not the least design and UI changes.


#10

Hi, @Manoj, is there a time-line for this road map, and will it be needed to reinstall /e/ to enjoy these new features like uninstallable default apps? And when will the long announced /e/ application store be ready?

an innovative setup

a fresh installation will be needed of course. Just a question, it is already a while since this was announced, and today I had an experience: never add a repo to F-Droid, it updates everything and even wakes up disabled apps. :astonished:


#11

I don’t think you will have to “reinstall /e/” (meaning restore the phone I suppose) because like every updates, only the system partition is rewritten, not the data partition. (I guess :yum: )


#12

Hi @pjmbraet,
There is no time line on these updates. All that I can say is the development and testing is in its final stages. The problem is I guess we added a lot of these features later based on user comments and feedback. The purpose and intention of the team is to make the /e/ ROM unique and not just a fork of lineage with MicroG.
I would expect the ROM with removable system apps and the app repository will all be available as OTA updates and not require users to format and manually install the ROM.


#13

@Manoj
Do you think that it’s reasonable to say that /e/ V1 is to be released before May by this point?:joy:
I am so interested.
