JingOS Roadmap for 2021 H1


We are going to release the first version of JingOS on Jan 31, 2021.

Before that, I think there’s a more important question which lots of our potential users are interested in: What’s the roadmap of JingOS?

So, I’m writing this post to give you a brief roadmap of JingOS in the first half of 2021.


JingOS v0.6: was released on Jan 31, 2021. It has been tested on Surface Pro 6, Huawei Matebook 14. This is a preview version of JingOS. You can have the control panel and notification center on your Linux tablets just like iPadOS! You can check the preview video of the JingOS v0.6 here.

JingOS v0.8: was released on Mar 31, 2021. Huge updates will be available, including the JingOS App Store, Settings, File Managers, etc. And a whole new virtual keyboard designed for Linux will be available too. OTA will be functional since v0.8. Several other devices will be tested for JingOS v0.8 besides SP6 and HM14 mentioned above.

JingOS v0.9: was released on May 31, 2021. Plenty of new functions added, like adaptive layouts, wallpaper settings, Gaussian blur effect at Notification Center and Control Panel, improved mouse click accuracy, and many more.

JingOS v1.0 ARM: will be released shortly after Aug 30, 2021. Start supporting the JingPad, which is an ARM-based device.

We will try to release updates for JingOS ARM version every month after June.

About open sourcing:

JingOS is based on Ubuntu 20.04, KDE v5.75, Plasma Mobile 5.20. We will replace the framework from Plasma Mobile to JDE(Jing Desktop Environment) later this year.

The project has been open-sourced on GitHub: JingOS-team.

Any questions, plz leave your comments below.





JingOS v0.6:将于2021年1月31日发布。已经在Surface Pro 6,华为Matebook 14上进行了测试。这是JingOS的预览版。您可以像iPad一样在Linux平板电脑上安装控制面板和通知中心!您可以在此处查看JingOS v0.6的预览视频

JingOS v0.8:将于2021年3月31日发布。这个版本将提供大量更新,包括JingOS应用商店、设置、文件管理器等。同时还将提供专为Linux设计的全新虚拟键盘。OTA也将自v0.8起开始支持。除了上面提到的SP6和HM14,还将在其他几款设备上测试运行JingOS v0.8。

JingOS v1.0 ARM版本:将于2021年6月30日发布。开始支持基于ARM的设备JingPad C1。

在6月之后,我们将争取每个月发布一次JingOS ARM版本更新。


JingOS基于Ubuntu 20.04,KDE v5.75,Plasma Mobile 5.20。我们将在今年晚些时候将把框架从Plasma Mobile替换为JDE(Jing Desktop Environment)。

JingOS supported on Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1?

Is that a statement or a question?

@MrAnonBoi I edited Biagio’s question adding the question mark…

“JingOS v1.0 will be released shortly after Aug 30, 2021” - must refer to the JingPad ONLY because we are still on v0.9.1 on our x86 devices. Will you ever release a newer version for us or is it time to move on? I understand the JingPad is a priority but you don’t make it clear on the roadmap for the OS itself.

Nokia N1 没有装Linux,求适配。

Indeed, Linux has found some problems under the touch screen. For example, the ability to unlock the lock screen. I’d prefer a strong ecosystem of productivity (not entertainment and communications) for Linux tablets. Because I think it’s not just programmers who need it.

In addition, from some channels to understand that this tablet is now delayed in launch, everyone’s confidence is somewhat inadequate. Why can’t it be released on schedule? If it has been published how do I get it? I think this Linux tablet has received a lot of attention and I hope you don’t live up to your interest and expectations.

To be fair I also don’t think x86 has any future… the x86 Android project stopped a few years ago. And what they are shipping is an Android tablet with some Linux pieces added.

What they shipped to me on the A1 is effectively a customized Android with a SoC vendor non-mainline Android kernel, with some Linux userland pieces. It’s a midrange whitebox Android tablet sold at a big premium, because “Linux”. Some of the simpler Linux pieces work OK like they do if you install just the userland parts Debian on any Android (for free), things like Chromium and Firefox can work (which is good that it can work at all), but without gpu acceleration means they are useless compared to a 6 year old generic Android device. The shipped Linux distro pieces are too old. Firefox is a dozen releases out of date.

I did not see any comment from the vendor about what they will do to improve matters. For example, “we will make a new release in Feb 2022 aimed at providing GPU to Linux apps on A1”… nothing. I think now I read they secured new funding, they need a roadmap for existing customers to get something useful, or they will find they have poisoned the well not just for A1 but for future products too.
