Thought I'd report here (as well as in the Sailfish forum). I dropped Davide another query about current timings for Sailfish. Here is his response:

Things slowed down quite a bit unfortunately, as we received much less community support for the Cosmo Communicator in the past weeks.

Because of this, there is no place to get in touch with the latest information at the moment, this will hopefully change in the future when/if more people will contribute.

We are working closely with one open source contributor to release the next Linux version. The last Debian/KDE version I tested had suspend/resume when the device is open/closed and Linux modem support, including calls and SMS.

There are a few bugs that needs to be fixed before the release, which should happen in the coming weeks.

The same developer is responsible for the porting Sailfish to the Cosmo, so there will be no progress on it until we complete Debian.

I've reinstalled Android on my Cosmo, just to get a bit of use out of it—but I'm still waiting for the release of Sailfish, and in the meantime my Gemini with Sailfish remains my main phone. (I will be interested to see the results of their Debian work.) I'm not personally in a position to contribute to either Debian or Sailfish development. (Busier than ever in lockdown, what with homeschooling and the day job.) But I wonder whether more people would be able and prepared to contribute if there was a more obvious way to keep track of what was being done and what help is needed.

Anyway, Davide's report that there is work going on that will hopefully reach us before too long is very welcome to me.

Just a heads up that Sailfish was released to Early Adopters on the 2nd April. Usually it will be made available to everyone else as an update about a week later. I'm looking forward to upgrading my system.
Sadly, it doesn't appear that support for the Cosmo was included in this version. This is disappointing. I've emailed Davide Guidi in the hope of hearing whether there is any work going on to make a version available for the Cosmo. I'll post if hear anything back.
All the best,

Jolla Releases Sailfish OS Nuuksio to Early Access (EA) Subscribers

Nothing about the Cosmo yet ...

This forum has been pretty quiet over the summer. I see something about a Sailfish 3.1. :
Has anyone tried this out yet and can perhaps state how easy it is to upgrade and whether enough has changed/improved to make it worthwhile?
I'm happily using Sailfish for some months now as my main phone. Apart from the absence of Signal Messenger, I don't feel like I'm missing very much. (Though I probably would like to spend more time getting to know all the stuff the thing can do—I currently don't use it for much more than phone calls, email, web browsing and texts.)

All the best,

I've not yet managed to load SfOS but hope to soon, so please forgive an ignorant question from a newbie. If as I understand SfOS is built on Linux, is it theoretically possible to run EPOC on Wine on Exagear on SfOS as mentioned for linux here?

I don't suppose anyone has tried this, have they? (As mentioned in the last post on that thread it appears that Exagear may stop being available from end of this month.)
Thanks in advance.
