[pivotCE]LuneOS project still progressing


Recommended Posts

It’s been quite a while since our last release and we’ve been keeping quiet lately. Some of the team members have also enjoyed some well deserved time off in the meanwhile as well. The majority of what we’ve been working on hasn’t been and isn’t ready for public consumption.

But quite a lot of things have happened in the past couple of months.

Here’s what we’ve been working on since the previous release:
-Updated various underlying OS bits: IM plugins such as SkypeWeb, YahooPlusPlus.
-Update from BlueZ4 to BlueZ5. This one is a major upgrade that requires all our targets to have major rework on low level code and this has been taking a long time but is now complete for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. This also required us to rework our Settings App plugin for BlueTooth. Since we were never really happy with the plugins and their negative impact on the performance combined with the still uncertain future of the Enyo framework, we decided to start rewriting the Settings app in QML. This will also bring back the individual Settings icons back to the launcher, like they were available on legacy webOS 2.x and 3.x.
-Added various bits and initial work for VPN plugin support for ConnMan.
-Cleanup various configuration files.
-Changed the default wallpaper to a nice new high quality LuneOS one! Thanks to Hans Kokx (aka HaDAk for the great photos!)
-Various minor tweaks to configuration.

We’ve been working on some new porting targets as well. Seeing that Halium is now available for a large number of target devices (50+ at the time of writing), users/developers have come along wanting to try LuneOS on their Halium supported device too so we’re trying to assist those in getting LuneOS working. This is still a lot of work in progress, but results look promising in general. This also would mean we will support Android 7.1.x based devices and Aarch64 bits architecture (ARM 64 bits chipsets).

New targets we are currently developing for are: Xiaomi Redmi Note 4x (mido), OnePlus X (onyx), Google/Huawei Nexus 6P (angler) and Motorola G4 (athene). These are in various stages of development currently.

We’ve also been assisting the on their build system and targets with great success so far! There are still bits to be added and polished but it’s already a great start to see how far they have been able to come in such short time!

We’re also looking into integrating more with  , allowing more and easier ports of the LuneOS!

We plan to be back with a new release in due course, in the meanwhile you can always check our !

      hello, 

      Got a new 86nano75SQA
       
      google assistance BUILT in works fine - and if i ask it to play a video it does.

      But external google assistance on my google devices, only turns the TV on and off, and opens apps..

      I cant for instance say "Play big bang theory on LG TV"

      Or it says "I also need to know which device to use. try saying that again, and include the device's name"

      Can anyone do this? is it it expected it works? works fine with the built in assistant, but not external ones

      The first week of June, which presents International Children’s Day (June 1) and World Environment Day (June 5), reminded us of the importance of caring for our world and its children. To properly commemorate these universal holidays and live up to LG’s steadfast commitment to CSR activities that inspire positive change, LG Kazakhstan enlisted the help of 40 children from the Almaty Regional Orphanage to make a difference in their own backyard, and hopefully learn while having heaps of fun in the process.

      The enthusiastic children selected which trees they wanted to plant in the garden, and now fifty apple, plum, apricot, cherry and pear trees are growing there and will eventually provide fresh fruit on their doorstep. Plant specialists were also on site to teach the kids which practices lead to the richest harvest and greenest environment. What’s more, to commemorate International Children’s Day, every hard-working child received a memorable souvenir as a reminder of the amazing work they did that day.

      LG Kazakhstan champions sustainable development and social responsibility through the implementation of environmental practices and charity events that improve the quality of life for locals. Recent initiatives such as LG Blood Donations Day, various CSR educational lectures for students and LG Prima Nota Fest ­­– a nationwide classical music contest for children – demonstrate LG’s tireless efforts towards creating a better life for all.

      A company must fulfill its environmental and social responsibilities to nurture a flourishing ecosystem that benefits all. Introducing technologies that minimize its carbon footprint during manufacturing and implementing inclusive solutions are deeply embedded in LG’s core value, and the company will never falter when it comes to innovating new solutions that help solve the world’s technological and social issues.

      After 70 years on the throne, the extraordinary popularity of Queen Elizabeth II did not go unnoticed during Britain’s four-day Platinum Jubilee extravaganza that took place the first weekend of June. To get ready for the festivities, LG hosted a virtual LG SIGNATURE event in advance as a part of the luxury brand’s ‘LG SIGNATURE Hosts’ experiences.

      Hosted at the end of May, the event comprised of two interactive Zoom sessions in partnership with acclaimed British chef , who is described by renowned critic and presenter as “the kind of chef who only comes along once or twice in a decade.”

      Ahead of the session, guests were gifted a luxurious picnic hamper which included dishes curated by Denney, a bottle of Chapel Down English sparkling wine and an LG SIGNATURE branded champagne stopper. Denney’s menu choices were inspired by traditional British delicacies and favorites of the Royal Family, with items such as mutton salami, Isle of Wight tomato panzanella, Royal Warranted Kings’ Caviar and a traditional cherry tea cake with whipped vanilla cream that Denney’s grandmother used to make for the Spencer family at .

      During the session, Denney talked the media through the creation of both the panzanella salad and the cherry tea cake, while showcasing the unique features of the LG SIGNATURE Wine Cellar and LG SIGNATURE Refrigerator that were set up in the kitchen.

      LG SIGNATURE products are known for delivering high-end, unparalleled performance. Offering the precise temperature- and humidity-controlled conditions needed for optimal preservation, the LG SIGNATURE Wine Cellar is the ideal home solution for keeping wines of all types at their best. And, with the innovative InstaView feature, LG SIGNATURE Refrigerators allow users to see inside the easy access compartment without opening the door, helping food stay fresh longer.
      Empowered with advanced technology, stylish design and hygiene-promoting features, today’s luxury products represent innovation at its finest.

      Almost a year since I have my LG C1 still no Google Assistant or Smart home assistant support for Philippines. It's included in the website and marketing materials, but LG left me hanging until now. 
      Definitely a non-smart home friendly TV.

      A paradise for furniture lovers, Milan Design Week is also one of the best places to check out the latest in kitchen design and appliances. This year’s edition of Italy’s globally-famous design fair featured wares from many top global brands, including well-known lifestyle innovator, LG. The company’s booth offered up a full menu of delicious events for 2022, enabling visitors to experience the unique value and craftsman-like quality of the Signature Kitchen Suite lineup of premium built-in appliances.

      Signature Kitchen Suite’s ‘True to Food’ philosophy centers on the importance of preserving the original flavors of fresh ingredients, and is underpinned by a full understanding and sincere appreciation of the journey of good food. LG is proud to play its part in the final step of this journey with its state-of-the-art Signature Kitchen Suite’s appliances – including pro ranges designed to cook local specialties in the exact way (be it sous vide, induction, gas, griddle, true convection or steam) that best preserves their distinctive flavors and honors local culinary traditions.
      The ‘True to Food’ philosophy could be seen, smelled and tasted throughout the variety of activities and displays – including cooking shows, concept catering, illustrative artwork and wine tastings – delivered in collaboration with chefs, artists and influencers who share the brand’s ideals.

      Let’s take a look at some of the interactive, informative and often delectable events LG prepared for Milan Design Week 2022.

      Entertaining Cooking Shows with New Signature Kitchen Suite Appliances
      Leveraging Signature Kitchen Suite appliances, LG provided innovative experiences every day of the week-long celebration, putting on engaging cooking shows for people who value the art of cooking and enjoy gourmet food that allows the original flavors of ingredients.

      Visitors were able to take part in cooking demonstrations showcasing traditional cooking methods and the precision of the Signature Kitchen Suite Pro Range featuring built-in sous vide function and the brand’s superb Induction Oven. Chef Christopher Tomei impressed those on hand by making mouthwatering food and by hosting lively panel discussions about the joys and benefits of authentic cooking. And, for an innovative mixture of cuisine and electronic music, LG presented daily performances by the trio of Italian artists known as Food Ensemble.
       
      Concept Catering: Sharing the Original Taste of Local Ingredients
      As well as entertaining cooking shows, LG’s booth captivated visitors’ senses with twice-daily ‘concept catering’ events. Mimosa Milano, a Milan-based cooking project led by chef Mimosa Misasi, treated attendees to an array of fine foods made with local ingredients, such as fragrant and flavor-rich herbs and spices, perfectly preserved and precisely prepared using Signature Kitchen Suite products.
       
      Sharing Brand Values Through the Power of Art
      The core values of the Signature Kitchen Suite brand and its ‘True to Food’ philosophy were also communicated through the instantly-recognizable art of Italian illustrator, architect and author, Carlo Stanga, who created two exclusive works for LG’s Milan Design Week showcase. Displayed inside the booth, the first depicted a cityscape which visitors could zoom-in on to discover Signature Kitchen Suite appliances, then click to find out more about each product and its features. The second artwork, exhibited outside the Signature Kitchen Suite’s Milan showroom, offered Stanga’s creative interpretation of the beautiful city of Milan.

      Wine tastings completed the artful culinary experience, giving visitors the opportunity to sample and savor wines chilled to perfection in the Signature Kitchen Suite Column Wine Cellar and Under-counter Wine Cellar.

      The diverse program of events held during Milan Design Week elegantly expressed the ‘True to Food’ philosophy and unique value of LG’s sophisticated built-in brand, successfully introducing more people to the advanced technologies, stylish design and convenient features that define the Signature Kitchen Suite lineup.
