Application SDK Early Access

From SailfishOS Documentation

Early Access SDK

Sailfish SDK Early Access releases will go 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.


Please, remember, that during the early access time the Early Access SDK should not be used for submitting apps to the Jolla Harbour. For that purpose, the latest public SDK can be found from the Application SDK page. There's also other SDK related information available on the same page.
