PreCentral: LunaCE graduates to beta status, ready to remove your ripples

Recommended Posts

LunaCE graduates to beta status, ready to remove your ripples

Just two weeks ago LunaCE was released by WebOS Ports in alpha status. The homebrewed improvement to the LunaSysMgr that was released as part of HP's webOS Community Edition project brought a number of enhancements to willing testers, including tabbed card stacks and app switching gestures. After a bunch of testing, bug fixes, and a few improvements, LunaCE is graduating up to the beta feeds in Preware.

The set-up process for getting into the beta feeds is almost identical to that for the alpha feeds, so if you're interested in trying out the LunaCE beta, you can head over to testing.preware.org for instructions. It's important to note that LunaCE alpha testers will have to delete the Alpha from their TouchPad before attempting to install the beta. That said, our caveat from before - how you should tread carefully with alpha software - can be lightened a bit in this newfound beta status. Showstopping bugs should be squashed, and while everything's not necessarily perfect, LunaCE is by-and-large in the ironing out wrinkles phase and ready for wider-spread deployment. As before, if you've got something you think should be added to LunaCE, there's a place for that, and there's also a place for you to log and track any bug reports with the software.

Speaking of wrinkles, there's a new little feature that's been added to the LunaCE beta: you can now turn off the not-that-iconic-but-it's-always-been-part-of-webOS ripple tap indicator. You know, that little ripple overlay that briefly appears on the screen when you tap on anything? Yeah, that thing. If that's the sort of thing that bothers you (after three years of webOS usage we've stopped noticing it), then the LunaCE beta now adds an option in Tweaks for you to turn the ripple off, no Luna restart needed.

    • Disney Plus on LG webOS TVs

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus

      To all, I hope someone can help me. We recently bought an oled55e9 en we are actually quite pleased, apart from the wifi being to slow and sometime dropping.

    • Question: WebOS 4 + HBBTV MHEG 2019 FAIL

      Hi All Has anyone with a 2019 model Webos 4.5 or above got any of the Freeview IPTV channels working eg. 211,  261,  265 etc. I am trying to workout if this really is a problem affecting every TV made by LG in 2019 or just a few of us. If it is every LG tv then why are there so few people highlighting and reporting this, If it is just a few of us the maybe is is a set or batch problem. I just struggle to understand why LG would remove functionality from a tv that has more pro

    • Question: WebOS update and 49SM8600

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog
