Small issue, I downloaded the most recent version - harbour-sailbook-11.0-7.armv7hl.rpm and can see the updates in the app, but Sailbook reports only v11.0-5. I removed the app and reinstalled it, same issue.

Many thanks

You're welcome!

Hi minitreintje
did you recognize already, that the timeline isnt'l loading anymore? I suppose it's an issue on the fb-side?

minitreintje's picture

I didn't... Yeah I have that too.
Seems to be related to FB, most of the time they fix such thing in the next couple of days.
If they implemented something new to load the timeline (JavaScript stuff most of the time), the web engine might not support it (and won't load it of course)

Found a workaround, will be deployed this week to Openrepos!

Is it possible to load pictures in high quality on the front page? Even after opening the picture, I can't press "Show full sized picture"-text (translated from Finnish)

minitreintje's picture

This feature is broken due to FB changes. An upgrade of the web engine would be useful to fix this. All the JavaScript that they are using nowadays...

Now I receive a new message notification when I *send* a message to a friend.

Also, when starting Sailbook, I might not receive a new message notification for a minute or so after opening.

I'm running latest SFOS on a J1.

@minitreintje Very often the touch input is not recognized/accepted, could you please fix this major issue?
I am using an Xperia XA2.

Another major issue us the missing caching, everytime I loose the network coverage Sailbook dismisses my loaded content and shows a placeholder page.

minitreintje's picture

Input issues? I'm not sure what you mean? I don't have them on my X.

The network coverage thing is a bit annoying, I know. It's a known issue.
However, I was waiting for Qt 5.9 first, but it will not come this year so maybe I find some time to handle this issue.

minitreintje's picture

The update is already on it's way for approval :)

It would be great if you updated the app on the Jolla Store

The bug with show unread message which I sent, is on the Facebook side?

Rudi_Timmermans's picture


Yes this is a facebook bug not Sailbook.

minitreintje's picture

Rudi stopped completely witg Sailfish OS. I took over the development a while ago, but I also took over the repo now
