  1. Picture credit: pxhere.com Happy Halloween! The long wait is finally over #LuneOS and #webOS fans! We’re back with a new release called “Eggnog Latte” which is a milestone in terms of developments and paves the way forward! So you’re wondering what we’ve been up to since our previous stable release at the end of last year? We have done many major upgrades to a large number of components of our stack being: Migration of Open webOS to webOS OSE components. We are almost half way there in terms of the migration of old Open webOS components to their webOS OSE replacements. T

  3. The very long wait is over #LuneOS and #webOS fans! We’re finally back with a new release called “Doppio” which we believe will be a milestone in terms of developments and the way forward! So you’re wondering what we’ve been up to for the past year? Well, actually a whole lot to be honest! We have upgraded the bluetooth stack from BlueZ4 to BlueZ5 which required quite some work to the kernels. This has been successfully completed for the Nexus 4 (Mako) and Nexus 5 (Hammerhead); unfortunately to date we haven’t been able to get this to work on the Touchpad (4G) (Tenderloin). We have been w

  5. There’s a new Palm phone. It’s due to be released next month. Now, if you are a long time Palm enthusiast (and reader of this blog) you will no doubt be telling your heart not to beat too quickly because to put it mildly, things have not worked out well in the past. We already knew that TCL / Alcatel had bought the brand (only). The possibility of a new phone running webOS was dismissed. The speculation on the webOs Nation forum was that we would be seeing a standard Android slab with the Palm logo stuck on, though no one could figure out quite how that would be a success. In August, ther

  7. It’s been over a year since there was a webOS meet up in Chicago, but it’s happening next month! There are many fun things to do in Schaumburg, but the highlight of your visit will of course be the chance to sit down with fellow webOS enthusiasts to enjoy pizza and good conversation. The 2018 webOS meetup will be on Sunday June 3rd 2018 at 7pm. The place is Moretti’s Ristorante and Pizzeria, 1893 Walden Office Square, Schaumburg, IL 60173. Bring your old webOS devices, your new LuneOS devices and your Raspberry Pi running webOS OSE (but maybe leave your webOS TV at home). Click here for

  9. Android Police broke the story earlier today that TCL will launch a Palm branded phone via Verizon sometime in the 2nd quarter this year. And surprise…it runs Android. Sadly that’s all we know for now. It’s taken TCL a long time to do anything with the Palm brand. We first talked about it 3 years ago. It started as an unveil of sorts at CES in 2015 when they announced they had purchased the Palm brand and they’d be crowd-sourcing from “Palm’s very own community” what to do with it. No idea what they meant by that… They even launched a website placeholder that directed palm.com to mynewp

  11. Dig around in your closet, dump out that side table drawer, and wade through boxes in your garage. Do whatever you have to do to find those old Palm OS devices because there’s a new software archive in town! Reddit user, Yiddish, established the archive and is adding to it via donations from Palm fans. (Check out /r/Palm by the way!) If you have files to add, reach out to Yiddish via the Reddit post or on the twitter page for @ArchivePalmOS. Shalom! #PalmOSforever Click the pic above for a recent /r/Palm post from andymememe.

  13. The release of fresh webOS code from LG in the form of webOS Open Source Edition was unexpected. There’s been some interest in what exactly it is. Fortunately, web developer, Garrett Downs has the Raspberry Pi 3 needed to run the code and we have a guest post with his first impressions: What’s that? Pining for webOS? Build and install on your Raspberry Pi! https://t.co/3Eslofgb1x and https://t.co/GxY3yWnJlz — webOS DevRelations (@webOSdev) March 20, 2018 When I saw a tweet from @webOSdev announcing webOS OSE was available to install on a Raspberry Pi 3, I knew what I’d be doing that nigh

  15. Yo! We heard you like open sourced webOS so LG open sourced the open source of webOS! Ok, so that’s not entirely accurate since LG purchased the closed source webOS code from HP after they open sourced…well…bits and pieces of it back in 2012. So no, you’re not stuck in a Doctor Strange time loop. webOS has been open sourced before but not by LG. This news comes as a shock to the current legacy webOS community still rocking Pre 3s and waiting for LuneOS to reach “driver” status. The community hasn’t poured through the code as of yet but it immediately begs certain questions: Will the wo
