It’s been a long road back from the brink for webOS
, but today HP kept its promise
about reviving the mobile operating system and unveiled webOS 1.0 just weeks after debuting a beta version.
“Our combined efforts with the community and hard work have paid off, and we are now ready to move on to the next phase together,” the team stated in a blog post. “With this release we have affirmed our commitment to meet our goals and create a vibrant open source community.”
There is now an OpenEmbedded build that runs inside an OE emulator, email, a browser, Enyo2 support, and more. HP says there are more than 75 components built for webOS. webOS can now also be ported to new devices.
Curious? Here’s a demo video:
Look for additional features, including Qt5 / WebKit2, open sourced media and audio components, BlueZ Bluetooth stack, ConnMan network management, and optimized SysMgr rendering architecture, in the coming months.
