Everyone's slowly preparing for the OTA planned at the end of the month.
The list of issues that have been scheduled for this milestone can be
found on the ww22-2015 LP milestone . There are some connectivity

release of OTA-4 the stable branch will officially become vivid based.
There's not too many visual changes coming with this switch, but there
are a few things we didn't back-port to 14.09 before.

Of course the Ubuntu Edge won’t be the first smartphone to be based on this amazing platform. Just last month, a new BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition was launched. However, this device lacks in some areas when compared to the Edge.
