[pivotCE]LuneOS December Stable Release: Cappuccino

Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas! And we’re finally back with a new release called “Cappuccino”, just in time for Christmas and the New Year. We have been focusing on improving the underlying system stability, adding new features and upgrading various system components.

The release is a bit later compared to what you’re used to this which is due to a combination of some technical, logistical and personnel issues.

We have worked hard to make the OS even more stable and smooth.

We have been focusing on some of the back-end bits for Instant Messaging. Instant Messages aren’t working yet fully in our Enyo 2 rewrite of Messaging, but things start to look better with each change. We have also updated various IM plugins for Skype & Yahoo.

We have also reworked the handling of the notifications to become a bit more snappier and we brought back some more features from LunaCE like “

link hidden, please login to view
“.

We have also re-worked the handling of the icons in the launcher a bit. We now have a Calendar icon showing the correct day for example.

We have also started the work to migrate our Nexus 4 (Mako) build from Android 4.2.2 (CM 10.1) based to Android 5.1 (CM 12.1) based. The image for this is working, we’re now looking to integrate this into our build environment, which is scheduled for just after the holidays. This will also make new ports of more modern targets like the newer Nexus  and OnePlus targets a lot easier.

At the same time we’re also looking at updating our Yocto release from Krogoth to Morty, however we ran into some roadblocks there, so we’ll revisit that after we have completed our CM 12.1 build integration.

Many other small items have been fixed as well, see below for more details of all the changes!

Known issues:

  • Node-SQLite3 is currently not working. Components using Node-SQLite3 have switched to an alternative storage method for now.
  • Focus bug on input fields. You can work around this by hiding the virtual keyboard and pressing the input again.

      TCL is resurrecting the Palm brand with a brand-new Palm, Inc. based in California. As we reported last week,
      link hidden, please login to view late last year, although at the time it wasn't clear what the company had planned. It's not at all clear what TCL intends to do with the Palm brand, although they seem to recognize the history that the brand carries. Says TCL:

      Palm has always carried a lot of affect and emotions. That's why TCL has set the direction to rebuild the brand involving Palm's very own community, making it the largest scale crowd-sourced project ever seen in the industry.
      Where TCL's Alcatel Onetouch has long produced
      link hidden, please login to view, and it seems that TCL wants Palm to be a division that produces "a more-advanced device", with "breakthrough innovations" across the hardware, software, and even sales models. TCL's full weight will be behind Palm, touting 5000 engineers and 7 research-and-development centers around the world. When we'll see more from TCL and Palm isn't clear, but we do know one thing: Palm is coming back.

      link hidden, please login to view, with Palm being founded as an independent company in 1992, being bought by US Robotics in 1995, and then 3Com in 1996, being spun off in 2000, split in half in 2002 and renamed PalmOne, merged with Handspring in 2003, rebranding as Palm, launching webOS in 2009, selling to HP in 2010, getting canceled in 2011, webOS getting open sourced in 2012, and the remnants of the Palm company (minus the branding) being sold to LG in 2013. It's rare that a company receives a second life as Palm did, and rarer still to be revived after being left for dead. Regardless, the Palm brand carries a lot of emotion for many, so it's good to see it coming back and we hope TCL produces a phone that's worthy of the name Palm.

      I have a one year-old model 43UK6500AUA, with standard remote only (no Magic Remote). I can find no mention anywhere of Time Machine. Does this model not include Time Machine  II functionality? Must one have a Magic Remote to reveal this feature? I am also baffled by numerous references in the forum to using HDMI , which should not be necessary if using the TV's built-in tuner, as I intend to do. There is also mention of using USB3 for the external HDD. My TV has only  two  USB ports : USB1 and USB2 — or does this refer to USB 3.0 version (as opposed to USB 2.0)?

      This question has probably been asked loads. I am trying to add an App.  Nanomid. I cannot see or search it. When I check YouTube for tutorial, the software or Layout is completely different to my TV.  42LA620V-ZA I have tried software update, no joy. It's not just this App, there have been others. Any advice

      TVset: SM90107LA  (europe/german model)   /   WebOS: 04.80.02
      When scheduling a planned record of a TV broadcast by using the electronic program guide data (EPG), often the last minutes of the broadcast are missing at the records. This is very annoying. Fortunately you can adjust the starting and ending time of a planned (future) record in that manner that you can, for example, extend the ending time by 5 or 10 minutes. This is very helpful.
      Unfortunately this option is not available for instant records either from the EPG screen or by direct recording. Here I have only the opportunity to completely change the EPG ending time of the running record to an own time value (e.g. record of 1 h from now). It would be more helpful if running records could also be extended a little bit but without loosing the end time of the record taken over from EPG.
      Are there any other solutions for it?

      Official Release of LuneOS and Project Updates
       
      WebOS Ports releases LuneOS with it's first release called Affogato. Read all about it at link hidden, please login to view.
       
      It’s been a long while since we link hidden, please login to view back in June of 2013, but today after months of very hard work we are very proud and happy to provide our latest release to the community now named “LuneOS”.
      The first eye catching change is the new name we’ll be using for our project going forward. The distribution will be called “LuneOS” instead of “WebOS Ports Open webOS” because it wasn’t very catchy.  Lune is the French translation of moon and refers to the user interface we all love so much in legacy webOS, LunaSysMgr, which is named after the Latin/Spanish translation of moon.
       
      The release model for LuneOS is a rolling one where each of the releases will get its own name from a list of coffee beverages. This first release is “Affogato”....link hidden, please login to view
