After being in beta for a while, HP's Open webOS has a new release: version 1.0.

Written on the blog for the Open webOS Project, "Today is a great day for Open webOS. We have completed our initial roadmap and are releasing Open webOS 1.0 on schedule, as promised...We now have an OpenEmbedded build that allows a full webOS experience running inside an OE emulator. We have added core applications — email & browser — while continuing to support the desktop build environment. The 1.0 release also brings support for Enyo2. You can now take apps built on one of the best cross-platform JavaScript frameworks and easily run these same apps on Open webOS or other platforms. In the past 9 months, we have delivered over 75 Open webOS components. This totals over 450,000 lines of code. (Can I get a hell yeah!)."

The code for the open-sourced HP webOS can be found on GitHub.

Future plans for Open webOS include enhancements to Qt5 / WebKit2, open-sourced media and audio components, a BlueZ Bluetooth stack, ConnMann networking support, and an optimized SysMgr rendering architecture.

Embedded below is a HP-produced video of Open webOS running from their TouchSmart PC.
