I'm guessing that I'm kind of over reacting here, but the isis-browser github shows no development on its git hub for a month. Furthermore the home page and the blog page show nothing since March 23. I was, and still am, really excited to see what comes of this, but at this point it looks like HP might be flaking out on some of this... Ideas?

I always thought this was always going to be an August / Sept timeframe based on HP's release schedule for openwebos?

It's all part of a bigger project.

I see a few changes made to it over the last month. I imagine most of the work isn't being committed to it currently, since there's not really much as a whole we can do with it until the whole thing is buildable.

How's going to be abandoned, if it's the app's engine?

If you look at the change log for the qt branch of webkit, there were only 2 Palm people who submitted changes --- and both of them have moved to Nokia this month.

i thought the "official" standpoint was that its not a doable project until all assets required are fully available when totally open sourced.

The "unofficial" standpoint is that Google poached a bunch of enyo people and Nokia poached a bunch of palm's webkit people. One of the isis project member, alex van damme, went to Amazon's Kindle team (Lab126 subsidiary) last month.

You lose a bunch of people in April and May --- of course github doesn't see any updates since March.

No, that is for BUILDING a test version for us Nation-people to test. That has nothing to do with the code that needs to be comitted by HP/PALM.

qtWebKit is not Palm's responsibility -- look at the isis source not the webkit.

Well, it is supposed to be the engine for the entire operating system. As the current Open WebOS beta has the email client showing html content, I'd assume a lot of it's guts are in there, if not the standalone application itself.

Which means that Isis will be harder to port to existing webos devices? I assume that what is available with webos community edition is not enough to implement isis engine inside it ? Ama wrong ?

Hard to say, but it would definitely take up a lot of real estate. The entire QTWebkit would have to be installed in parallel with the existing Webkit engine the OS uses. So probably doable, but it would take up some real estate on your device. Probably better to get the drivers working and backport Open WebOS in its entirety.

Have you tried to run your compiled binaries on the Touchpad or another ARM device? Will you post your binaries for the rest of us to play with, along with the instructions for compiling?
