Planet has recently retweeted a post made by Jolla, the company developing the SailfishOS, where they are inviting everyone to their booth at the forthcoming MWC fair in Barcelona, Spain. Could this mean that they'll announce there a port of SailfishOS for the Gemini?

Hi,

as you probably noticed, the forum was offline for the past ~18 hours. This outage was due to a problem on the hosting side, and it has affected other sites on the same server too. We are still waiting for a statement from our hosting provider explaining the reason for the outage, but at least the forum is back online. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and thanks for your patience.

EDIT: Unfortunately it seems I spoke too soon: some pages still show an error when they are opened, and they are successfully opened only after 3-4 attempts. According to a post by one of the hosting provider's admin, the problem seems to be caused by recent Google Warnings about malware on some of the sites hosted by them, and by the software they are deploying in order to improve the security.

I can assure you that OESF is malware free: we have registered it on the Google Search Console a year ago, and it currently reports that no malware can be found here. I often check the Security status there to verify that no malware has been installed in the meanwhile.

The situation is anyway getting better, and I hope that soon we won't have any more problems. As before, thanks for your patience.

I'd like to share this interesting hint on how to reduce the use of the swap memory. Since this partition will be stored either on the internal flash or on a MicroSD card, reducing the number of writes to the memory will make it to last longer, and the OS should become more responsive too, though a lot of this depends on how often you'll use memory-intensive applications on your G:

I have reduced the value to 10 on my low-end laptop with 2GB of RAM, and I can confirm that it has become more responsive ever since. I know, I should buy some RAM for it anyway...

A new page with FAQs on the Gemini has been added to the GeminiPlanet page. The answers there will be added/updated as soon as new info will be made available:

A new update has been published on the Gemini's Indiegogo page:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gemini-p...one#/updates/46

"As Gemini is now in production, the price of the Gemini perks on Indiegogo will be going up to USD $499 for the WiFi and USD $599 for the 4G+WiFi Gemini perk. Perk prices will be changing on 9th of February 2018. Anybody wishing to contribute to the Gemini campaign at the current perk prices should do so before 9th of February 2018."

Also, now it's the final time to make your keyboard layout selection, so anyone who have not done it yet please hurry up:
