HP’s TouchPad and Palm phones are dead, but webOS continues to enjoy some kind of existence as open-source technology. Following an initial beta release back at the end of August, Open webOS graduates to a 1.0 release today.
Announced via blog post, the new release offers some changes that the Open webOS team hopes will usher in major new capabilities for developers.
The Open WebOS mobile Linux operating system has been renamed LuneOS, and is available in an Affogato release supporting HPs TouchPad and LGs Nexus 4. WebOS is back yet again in an open source LuneOS respin of the Open WebOS project, itself a spinoff of the proprietary WebOS.
