March 2012: HP webOS Open Source commitments on track. New Open webOS website.

According to Fred Patton on Sam´s Blog the developing of HP webOS open source roadmap commitments for March 2012 have been met.

From the HP webOS developer blog:


Today is a very exciting day for Open webOS. The Linux Standard Kernel (LSK) version 3.3 was released today by Linus Torvalds. When you read the release notes you will see some very significant functionality that we did not have in webOS. It incorporates new functionality such as the TI C6X and all ARM and Intel Chips. It also implements Open vSwitch, which is a more scalable kernel feature to prevent buffer overflow on TCP/IP v6.

The Linux Foundation has completed the Android mainlining, and LSK3.3 will support all Android drivers as well as traditional Linux Drivers. We expect to see other companies adopt this kernel as the standard.

In conjunction with this, we are releasing today our platform portability layer, code-named “Nyx Project” which will work with the new LSK. We are also releasing this week our USB extensions and graphics extensions. Next week, we plan to go public with our LevelDB integration. We’ll have more information on that when it goes out.

In administrative news, we are naming Damian Kowalewski leader of the Project Management Committee for our Core OS project.

And with that, we will have met our roadmap commitments for March.

We are also excited to announce a new website dedicated to Open webOS, openwebosproject.org. We will soon host a new blog on that site, and you can look for subsequent blog posts from me there.

Sam

Now the road to July is a long wait as it is for August and September. I can´t wait to see how HP is going to manage this big webOS open source operation out to the smartphones and tablets hardware manufacturers.
