[pivotCE]LuneOS July Stable Release: Cortado

Recommended Posts

That took a while, but lots of ground has been covered! We’re finally back with a new release called “Cortado”. We have been working very hard behind the scenes during the past couple of months!

So you’re asking what we have done? Most importantly we now have all our supported targets on at least a 3.4 kernel which was a critical requirement in order to update Yocto to Pyro. Both glibc and systemd required this.

So the Touchpad, Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 are now all on a 3.4 kernel and on an Android 5.1-based build!

For the Touchpad we were able to already use the work done by the

and we’re now mainly using
link hidden, please login to view
as a source for building the required Android bits!

This release is a bit of an intermediary release, so it’s not as stable as we would like it to be and as you are used to. We expect to address the remaining issues with the next release. We wanted to get this release out since it marks quite a milestone with all the underlying updates to the system.

We have also updated some of the UI bits and there is now a tablet layout similar to what was available on webOS 3.x with notifications at the top of the screen! Preware is now also working properly on targets with a landscape orientation like the Touchpad & VirtualBox (qemux86).

Due to the fact there’s no suitable 3.4 kernel available for the Galaxy Nexus (Maguro) we were forced to drop this as a porting target. We have also dropped support for Nexus 7 WiFi 2012 version (Grouper) due to the fact that none of the devs actually had this device and therefore we couldn’t test any updates.

We’re already full speed ahead with the update of QT from 5.6 to 5.8. This brings quite some challenges and requires quite some rework in various bits, but it seems things are progressing well.

Once the 5.8 upgrade has been completed we’ll be looking into updating to 5.9.1 in the near future as well since this will be a LTS (Long Term Support) release of QT. The upgrade from 5.8 to 5.9.x should be fairly straight forward since the changes aren’t that major.

We have the following items on our to-do list to focus on:

  • QT 5.7/5.8/5.9.1 Upgrade
  • Various UI tweaks
  • Messaging improvements
  • Camera improvements
  • Fix known issues on the various targets
  • Bring back official support for Touchpad 4G (current build works on Touchpad 4G but only WiFi).

Known issues:

  • Nexus 4 (Mako): Sound is broken on current build.
  • Nexus 5 (Hammerhead): Vibration doesn’t seem to work, backlight doesn’t turn off.
  • Qemux86: Mouse input doesn’t seem to work.
  • Touchpad (Tenderloin): Screen doesn’t always turn off, bug with switching between input fields leading to screen turning off or not responding. No official support for the 4G Touchpad yet, but the build should work.
  • 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.

Changelog

Applications:

  • Preware (org.webosinternals.preware): Fix Panel behavior in landscape orientation.

User Interface:

  • luna-next-cardshell: Notifications: separate view and model, Initial work on tablet style statusbar, Fix NotificationAreaTablet height, StatusBar: fix tablet TweaksClock visibility.

to get started. Tenderloin, Mako and Hammerhead remain our focus for now, but the emulator  works too.

Please note that in order to use the latest stable builds on the Nexus 4 (Mako) and Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) you need to flash the CM 12.1 images first using CWM/TWRP. In order to do so, you might be required to do a “factory reset” or at least “wipe cache”. CWM/TWRP will indicate when this is needed. After successfully flashing CM 12.1, make sure to boot it at least once before going back to CWM/TWRP to flash the latest LuneOS image! We have provided links to CM 12.1 for these 2 images on our device pages below.

      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've had my LG SmartTV for about 4 years. Up until a few days ago, I was able to view YouTube videos without issue. However, about 3 days ago, I started having problems with YouTube. I can access YouTube and search for videos. But, when I try to start the video, the "waiting" circle appears and never goes away.
      I've tried everything I can think of to troubleshoot this, including cold-starting the TV. But it's still happening. I thought it might be a YouTube problem. But, I'm able to view the videos on my desktop PC and via Roku, with no problem.
      What's going on? Can anyone help...please???
      Thanks...
      Clem
