HP To Open Source WebOS By September 2012

HP began executing its plan to deliver an open webOS by committing to a schedule for making the platform’s source code available under an open source license. HP is planning to have it all wrapped up by September. HP also announced it is releasing version 2.0 of webOS’s innovative developer tool, Enyo. Enyo 2.0 enables developers to write a single application that works across mobile devices and desktop web browsers, from the webOS, iOS and Android platforms to the Internet Explorer and Firefox browser and more. The source code for Enyo is available today, giving the open source community immediate access to the acclaimed application framework for webOS. By contributing webOS to the open source community, HP unleashes the creativity of hardware and software developers to build a new generation of applications and devices. The webOS code will be made available under the Apache License, Version 2.0, beginning with the source code for Enyo.
