Ubuntu Phone OTA-3 Released by UBports with Own Push Notification System

OTA-3’s major new feature is the implementation of UBports’ own push notification server. Previous OTAs still used Canonical’s Ubuntu Touch push notification system for apps, but with OTA-3 users will be automatically switched to the UBports push server, which will take a few hours to roll out to everyone. Other enhancements include a new Swiss-French keyboard layout, support for the Nextcloud file sharing and storage service, the addition of various small packages requested by the Ubuntu Phone community, integration of OpenStore into System Settings, and removal of the Ubuntu Store from the App Scope.
