PreCentral: Coming in March for Open webOS: WebGL, hardware abstraction, and more

1 post in this topic

open webOS

With yesterday's release of the Enyo 2.0 UI widgets bringing February's code commitment for Open webOS to a close, it's time now to look forward to March. webOS CTO Sam Greenblatt took to the HP webOS Developer Blog to lay out what we can expect in the month ahead - and it's right as the roadmap said it would be, though fleshed out with som additional detail today.

March's release will expand the already-released QtWebKit framework to incorporate Open GL ES and WebGL graphics libraries (the latter having taken far too long to make it on to web-based webOS), 3D audio API OpenAL Soft, and streaming media framework GStreamer.

We'll also get our first look at HP's implementation of the Linux Standard Kernel (v 3.3), which they'll be supplementing with a new hardware abstraction layered called "Nyx" that provides access to layers not available through the standard driver set. What exactly Nyx will provide access to (cellular radios? advanced sensors?) isn't clear at this point, but HP's got 31 days to clear that up.

Database-wise the Open webOS implementation of LevelDB will be released, as well as the developer-facing MojoDB/DB8 abstraction layer. Lastly, later in the month, we'll see the open sourcing of the Novacom USB driver, which though not yet open source is readily availabile already.
