Hello everyone ! 
 
We just released sxmo 1.8.0. It should be available to postmarketOS 
edge users very soon. Run the following commands to upgrade:
 
``apk update && apk upgrade -a`` 
 
!! IMPORTANT !! 
 
This release brings a lot of changes to sxmo configuration files and 
hooks. Leaving your old configs can cause many issues so we recommend 
you run `sxmo_migrate.sh` as soon as you upgrade. For this release, we 
also suggest running `cp ~/.config/sxmo ~/.config/sxmo.old` to keep a
backup. 
 
This release brings multiple refactorisations to make sxmo cleaner 
and more reliable: 
 
- We avoid leaving dangling processes and instead manage them 
using a safer/simplier method 
 
- We compute the status bar in a more efficient way. We also offer 
better controls to add/change/remove status bar components. 
 
- We changed the way we initialise sxmo and detect existing 
sessions from ssh or. Ssh into a running sxmo device and you'll
have dbus and other needed environment variables set up by
default. 
 
- LED management is now more reliable. We can invoke the LEDs from 
anywhere at anytime and keep a consistent state. We reserve long 
running leds for notifications. The long purple light for "screen off" 
mode or the long red one for "crust" (suspend) mode have been removed. 
The new periodic blinking purple light while in "screen off" mode is 
enough to indicate that the device did not enter crust. 
 
Known issue: It can happen that you enter crust while the purple 
led is blinking. You may experience long running purple while on crust 
cause of this race condition. We will rework some parts to avoid 
crusting while some actions are running. 
 
- The bluetooth menu has been rewritten from scratch. It looks better 
and allows for a more granular control on devices. It also offers a 
"Clean reconnect" entry to fully remove and reconnect a device if 
you are having issues connecting.
 
- Sxmo is now more pulseaudio/pipewire compatible. If you run pipewire
for  example, then the Audio menu or the volume gesture should work
better.  However, pipewire and pulseaudio are still NOT used for call
audio routing.

See: https://todo.sr.ht/~mil/sxmo-tickets/436
 
- The sxmo log file has been removed. We now rely on tinydm to log 
everything to ~/.local/state/tinydm.log 
 
- We now use the virtual keyboard to send dtfm tone keys on calls.

- if you experienced the losing touch issue, it is now fixed by sway
1.7. This release will be backported to the next pmOs release pack in
some weeks.

See: https://todo.sr.ht/~mil/sxmo-tickets/451

- Users can now use a more modular version of sxmo_common.sh in their
userscripts. For example, you can use `sxmo_icons.sh` to enable icons
in your script or  `sxmo_common.sh` set XDG vars and force using
scripts with busybox coreutils. This change minor changes in some
scripts.
