The next release should improve security configuration, further KF5 support. Windows / OSX support are also a possibility. Hopefully we will release on a more regular basis. Thanks to all beta testers for their feedback. Special thanks to Ákos, Martin, Tristan, Alex, Laurent, Emmanuel, Andrew and all translators. Without your contributions, this project would be a lot less stable. Please test, there is a lot of new code / features, feedback are needed.

SFLphone is available at http://sflphone.org/download/stable-release or at http://download.kde.org/stable/sflphone/ . Do not forget to first install the sflphone daemon before SFLPhone-KDE (it is a runtime dependency). Packages for (K)Ubuntu are available at https://launchpad.net/~savoirfairelinux/+archive/ppa and will get into your favorite distribution soon.  Enjoy!

  1. Yes, but the current version is using QWidgets, the QML version is both incomplete and badly fragmented (Jolla/Ubuntu Phone/KDE Active have all different widgets APIs)
