Sami Pienimäki, Co-founder of Jolla, said:
An active developer and fan community has always been a core part of Sailfish OS, and we want to thank all our fans for their passion and support throughout the years. The program was sold out quickly after the launch, which is a strong message of the willingness to change the world together. As the Sailfish OS licensing is expanding, the role of an active community gets even bigger. We are now investigating if we can extend the program beyond this.
