Application SDK Early Access

From SailfishOS Documentation

Early Access SDK

Sailfish SDK Early Access releases will provide the new SDK features and fixes a week or two before the final SDK release. By using the Early Access SDK you can be sure to get the latest and greatest SDK features first.

If you are looking for the regular SDK release or general information about the SDK itself, check out the Application SDK page.

Early Access Build Targets

The early access build targets are supported in both the Sailfish SDK and Sailfish SDK Early Access releases.

The latest early access targets can be installed by using the SDKMaintenanceTool:

1. Open the SDKMaintenanceTool

2. Choose Add or remove components and click Continue

3. Click the Sailfish OS Build Targets branch open from the components list

4. Check SailfishOS-ea-armv7hl and/or SailfishOS-ea-i486 component(s) for installation

5. Click Continue and follow through with the installation

The early access build targets will be released in sync with the early access releases of the Sailfish OS. Generally these releases will be available about a week earlier than the official public release. This allows developers to test and refine their apps before the public release.

If you have installed an early access build target or targets by using the SDKMaintenanceTool, you will get an update notification automatically when a newer early access build target release is available.

Please, remember, that the Early Access build targets should not be used for submitting apps to the Jolla Harbour. For that purpose, you should always use the latest non-EA (SailfishOS-latest-armv7hl or SailfishOS-latest-i486) build targets.
