Ubuntu Touch Mobile OS Now Maintained By UBports

An anonymous reader quotes Phoronix:
UBports continues to be the leading community project for trying to let Ubuntu Touch live on and evolve under their direction… Among their recent achievements were acquiring more sponsors, all devices that were sold with Ubuntu Touch can now run with UBports’ builds, they are working on their own version of Mozilla’s AGPS Location Service to replace Canonical’s GPS system, the Halium OS platform continues evolving, the Dekko email client is back under development, installation improvements are being worked on, they are still striving for Wayland support, and more.

The UBports Patreon page has even raised enough to allow UBports founder Marius Gripsgard to work full-time on what they’re calling “a beautiful, free and open-source mobile OS.” Their recent community update announced that “we are seeing more activity on Ubuntu Touch than for a very long time, and that is really encouraging.”
