[pivotCE]LuneOS October Stable Release: Decaf


Recommended Posts

The long wait is over #LuneOS and #webOS fans! We’re back with a new release called “Decaf” 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 the past 2+ months?

Well, actually a whole lot when you look at our changelog! We’ve been able to migrate from Qt 5.7 via 5.8 to 5.9.2 which is a long term support (LTS) release of Qt. This brings our web capabilities a lot more up to date! We’re on Chromium 56 based release now which dates back to January this year. This brings a lot of interesting new and modern HTML5 features such as Web Components that are used by Google’s Polymer framework, for example. It also offers us better plugin support. It’s now technically possible to sideload Flash & WideVine plugins and the sites using these can see and use the plugins. The plugins cannot be distributed in the image due to licensing issues, but users are free to sideload them .

This opens up the possibility to watch DRM protected content on sites like Netflix, YouTube etc.

The migration to Chromium 56 caused a lot of layout issues for all Enyo 1.0 apps which needed to be addressed at the same time as we made sure that the Enyo 1.0 apps we’re using can be run and debugged in Chrome on the desktop.

The new version of Qt also brings a simplified API for Wayland.

Work has been done on the stability issues with the Touchpad and it’s a lot more stable now. The backlight being always on for Hammerhead (Nexus 5) has been solved too and the VirtualBox image is working properly again!

We have been able to migrate our Mako (Nexus 4) and Hammerhead (Nexus 5) to use Project Halium. This means that all our Android & webOS based targets are now using Project Halium as a basis. In the near future we plan to work more closely together with Project Halium and use their kernels with our patches instead of maintaining the kernels by ourselves. This is expected to be completed by the next release. Using Halium kernels will also allow LuneOS ports for supported Halium devices to become a lot more easy and straightforward.

Quite a number of the UI bits in various QML apps have been reworked to use QtQuickControls2 styling for LuneOS. This will allow to have unified components to be used across various QML apps. It will also allow a better experience on HiDPI and retina screens.

The following items on our to-do list will be where we focus next:

  • 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 5 (Hammerhead) / Nexus 4 (Mako): Issue with sensors causing rotation to not work for example.
  • 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.

      New Lineup Offers the Ultimate Sound Experience with Combination of
      Superb Audio Quality, Adaptive ANC and a Comfortable Fit

      SEOUL, Aug. 8, 2022 — LG Electronics’ (LG) 2022 lineup of TONE Free true wireless earbuds provides the ultimate sound experience with advanced audio technologies, a better-fitting design and a host of useful, new features. Demonstrating LG’s ongoing commitment to user-centric innovation, the new TONE Free earbuds are the perfect everyday companions for today’s on-the-go lifestyles.
      This year’s flagship model (T90) TONE Free earbuds deliver impressive sound thanks to several upgrades, including a new internal structure with larger drivers that helps generate deeper, more satisfying bass. The use of graphene, a premium material that reduces vibration while boosting audio quality, enables the T90s to produce incredibly dynamic, yet balanced and crisp sound. A treat for the ears in more ways than one, LG’s T90 earbuds integrate the performance enhancing capabilities of Meridian Headphone Spatial Processing (HSP), a specialized technology from LG’s long-standing partner in delivering superior sound, Meridian Audio. With HSP inside, the earbuds present a full, more natural sound stage with a clear center image – making one feel like they’re listening to music played through real stereo sound system. In addition, Meridian’s Perfect Balance technology enables the T90 earbuds to achieve a consistent tonal balance at any volume.
      What’s more, LG’s T90 TONE Free Dolby Atmos earbuds are the world’s first wireless earbuds to support Dolby Head Tracking across all content and devices. Dolby Head Tracking recalibrates the sound as users move their heads for a more natural sound experience, so users will feel like they are in the center of the scene and experience a whole new level of audio immersion whether they are listening to music, watching movies, enjoying favorite streaming series or playing video games. Dolby Head Tracking together with Dolby Atmos content further elevate the listening experience, providing incredible detail, depth and clarity. The T90s are the first wireless earbuds to feature an audio virtualizer designed by Dolby specifically for earbuds – an advanced solution that expands spatial dimensionality for stereo entertainment.
      Additionally, the T90s come with Snapdragon Sound Technology Suite1 meaning users can experience a level of sound quality previously only available on wired headphones. Along with 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution audio, LG’s Snapdragon Sound earbuds provide robust connectivity, crystal-clear voice quality and low latency, making them perfect not only for listening to audio, but also for making voice calls and gaming.
      On top of that, the company’s premium wireless earbuds offer improved Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) with the Double Step ANC Algorithm and Real Time ANC Optimizer. The Double Step ANC Algorithm leverages a new filter with a higher sampling rate to cancel out external noises more effectively, and an advanced howling detection algorithm to eliminate unpleasant and distracting feedback. Meanwhile, the Real Time ANC Optimizer automatically adjusts ANC performance by analyzing the actual position of the buds inside the user’s ear via the inner microphones.
      LG’s latest TONE Free’s fit delivers comfort while boosting performance for enhanced sound and optimized noise cancellation. Created in collaboration with South Korea’s POSTECH Ergonomic Design Technology Lab, the earbuds’ comfort fit design boasts ergonomic precision and an optimized shape that feels better in the ear. Moreover, the new models are both smaller and lighter in weight than their predecessors, meaning users can wear TONE Free for extended periods with less distraction. The TONE Free’s Performance Fit ensures the right positioning in ears delivering more ultimate sound experience.
      LG’s new TONE Free models also ship with the UVnano charging case, which uses ultraviolet light to help keep the earbuds hygienically clean. New for 2022, LG’s UVnano technology provides wider coverage, sterilizing all parts of the ear gels. Additionally, the T90s adopt medical-grade, hypoallergenic ear gels to reduce the risk of skin irritation in the ear canal. Outstanding user convenience is another key benefit of LG’s TONE Free earbuds, which now boast enhanced connectivity and wider compatibility. Plug & Wireless, a feature that enables the charging case to double as a Bluetooth transmitter, enhanced with a useful, new voice chat function2 that is ideal for conference calls and for chatting with friends while gaming. With the included USB-C to AUX cable, users can plug the case into a radio, treadmill, in-flight entertainment system and a wide range of other products to enjoy the wireless freedom and first-class sound quality.
      Courtesy of Voice Pickup unit, the premium T90s even provide an improved voice calling experience. The Voice Pickup Unit detects and minimizes ambient noises when the user is speaking, making it easier for whomever is on the other end to hear what they are saying. New TONE Free models offer up to 9 hours of use on a single charge while the case itself can provide a further 20, for up to 29 hours of listening enjoyment.3 And, with a new quick charge feature, the earbuds can be completely charged after approximately 1 hour in the UVnano charging case.
      Finally, 2022 sees the introduction of LG’s new TONE Free fit lineup (models TF7 and TF8) designed for active lifestyles, providing a secure and comfortable fit for active moments from running and mountain biking, to vigorous training sessions at the gym. Both models incorporate SwivelGrip technology – which helps keep the earbuds firmly and comfortably in place, even during the most intense workouts – and offer a lightweight design that promotes better air circulation.
      Moreover, TONE Free fit models deliver solid ANC performance, clear spatial sound with Meridian HSP technology, and the hygiene-enhancing benefits of medical-grade, hypoallergenic ear gels and LG’s UVnano charging case. IP67 rated, the TF7 and TF8 are resistant to rain, splashes, sweat and dust to make it easy to go running or working out without any worries.4
      TONE Free fit models have a battery life of 10 hours (up to total 30 hours with the charging case). For more enjoyable workouts at the gym, the TF8 earbuds can connect to older, Bluetooth-less treadmill displays by using LG’s innovative Plug & Wireless solution.
      LG’s 2022 TONE Free true wireless earbuds will be rolled out in major markets worldwide from the end of August.

      2 Voice chat function is available only when using the included USB-C to USB-A cable.

      Hi! Thank you for your kind help
      I'm looking for a way to show an IP camera to LG TV, I've updated it to the latest version (WebOS).
      I really hope it is possible without buying an external HDMI box, there is any way to obtain that or install apps from USB? Thank you a lot!

      One of the major trends in consumer electronics, the ‘personalized user experience’ is something LG TV owners get to enjoy every day thanks to the abundance of convenient, customizable features and lifestyle services accessible via LG’s webOS platform.
      Since its launch in 2014, webOS has continued to evolve, offering increased functionality, services and options with each new update and version release. The latest webOS UI makes 2021 and 2022 LG TVs the ultimate home entertainment hubs – able to provide an ever-growing number of lifestyle apps, easier access to recommendations with the newly launched Life’s Good Hub and seamless mobile integration with effortless content mirroring.

      Revamped to help users navigate the expansive list of services on offer, the new webOS Home Screen now includes the Life’s Good Hub section, where users can discover some of the latest lifestyle apps at the press of a button. The lifestyle section provides a curated selection of up to fifteen apps centered on improving a specific aspect of life at home, such as fitness, wellbeing or staying connected. A real time-saver, the new feature enables users to find services suited to their unique tastes and preferences, ‘handpicking’ the most relevant apps from the approximately 2,200 currently available* on the LG webOS platform.
      Another important consideration for today’s users is the mobile experience and cross-device compatibility. LG’s ThinQ app has been updated to make it easier to mirror content from mobile devices to LG TVs. Users will enjoy being able to switch from watching on their mobile to watching on the TV when playing content from a range of different sources, including major streaming services, LG Channels and LG Fitness.

      The new lifestyle content that LG continues to bring to the webOS platform shows that the company understands and appreciates the ways in which consumers’ needs and lifestyles have changed in recent times. Take RemoteMeeting, for example: an easy-to-use video conferencing solution designed with the growing ranks of remote workers – and those wanting to catch up with friends and family in other places – in mind. Setting up the app on LG TV is fast and simple as it doesn’t require connection to a laptop or PC. From August 5, users signing up to RemoteMeeting will receive a free, 6-month membership, no matter where in the world they call home.

      In an uncertain world, self-care is just as important as connecting with others, and for that LG’s latest TVs support apps such as Insight Timer. The popular meditation app is engineered to help users combat anxiety, stress and poor-quality sleep through an array of uplifting and relaxing content and wellness tools. LG 2021 and 2022 TV owners can enjoy Insight Timer free for 12-months, granting them access to 150,000 guided meditations, soothing music tracks and more.

      Fitness is a key component of achieving personal wellbeing, too, which is why LG’s latest TVs offer several apps that can help users turn their living rooms into private workout studios. 305 Fitness, which features invigorating dance workouts with music from a live DJ and popular subscription workout apps such as MaxPro, Fiit TV and Flexit, will be arriving later this year.

      Additionally, LG’s webOS 22-powered TVs will soon be welcoming the hotly-anticipated IDOLLIVE app. A dream come true for the world’s legions of K-pop fans, the app lets users stream a plethora of compelling K-pop content, including live performances, exclusive interviews and music videos, and offers subtitles in five different languages (English, Japanese, Indonesian, Mandarin and Thai).
      With an intuitive UI and a growing library of apps and services spanning entertainment, smart home management as well as personal growth and wellbeing, LG TVs with webOS continue to redefine the ‘personalized user experience’ and deliver a better life at home to consumers worldwide.
