  • Folder support in launch area
  • Better sync options
  • Updated browser with full-classy screen support for HTML5 content
  • Support for SIM applications
  • New Bluetooth profiles
  • Customizable lockclassy screen shortcuts

If you feel like it, you can check out the complete changelog for the Saapunki update. However be prepared to do lots of scrolling - the bug fix list alone has about 100 items.

The update was first made available to the First One cover owners, while the rest of the you will acquire it shortly (if not already).

This firmware update comes just a month after the update 5 rollout and just a week after Jolla announced a permanent €50 price slit off the Jolla's retail price. It seems Jolla is prepping the update 8 for July, so even more cool stuff is on the way.
