You didn’t think HP forgot about WebOS did you? Okay maybe you did, but they are back with announcements today to remind you that they haven’t. HP is changing a few things to make it easier to open source WebOS. The biggest of those changes is switching to a Linux kernel instead of using their own custom one. This is going to make it much, much easier for people to install WebOS on a wider variety of devices. HP has also outed a roadmap for WebOS’ future:
- January: Enyo 2.0 and Enyo source code Apache License, Version 2.0
- March: Linux standard kernel, Graphics extensions EGL, LevelDB, USB extensions
- April: Ares 2.0, Enyo 2.1, Node services
- July: System manager (“Luna”), System manager bus, Core applications, Enyo 2.2
- August: Build release model, Open webOS Beta, Open webOS 1.0
Exciting, right? Also note that HP is rolling back the version number to 1.0 since this is basically a new version of WebOS.
