Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 has been in development for the past two and a half months, but it focuses on fixing bugs rather than on adding new features. Probably the most exciting thing implemented in the OTA-14 update is a revamped Unity 8 design that sports a brand-new task manager with support for fuzzy backgrounds and app icons.
Also new in the Ubuntu Touch OTA-14 update is version 1.17 of the Chromium-based Oxide web engine library, as well as Opus audio codec support, which was implemented in the qt-multimedia package. Among the improvements, we can mention that SMS notifications should now be displayed when the device is locked.
Other than that, the device should no longer appear off during an image update, some alarm issues have been fixed, and it looks like vibrations will work again when other vibrations are enabled. There are various other small fixes, and for more details we recommend studying the full changelog on the Launchpad page of the OTA-14 milestone.
