Open webOS 1.0 arriving in September

Open webOS 1.0 arriving in September
Back in December, HP decided it’s open sourcing webOS, and will remain an active contributor to its development and now we know when Open webOS 1.0 is arriving - this September.

HP released the whole schedule recently detailing the whole open source plan. First, the name of the OS has changed slightly to Open webOS.

Secondly, starting today the Enyo 2.0 framework for developers will be made available. The 2.0 version supports non-webKit browsers for app creation. In addition, HP will use the standard Linux kernel, which should make it easier for its hardware partners to make devices.

Here’s HP’s detailed roadmap:

Enyo 2.0 and Enyo source code
Apache License, Version 2.0

Intended project governance model
QT WebKit extensions
JavaScript core
UI Enyo widgets

Linux standard kernel
