    HP to Contribute webOS to Open Source

    HP today announced it will contribute the webOS software to the open source community. HP plans to continue to be active in the development and support of webOS. By combining the innovative webOS platform with the development power of the open source community, there is the opportunity to significantly improve applications and web services for the next generation of devices.

    webOS offers a number of benefits to the entire ecosystem of web applications. For developers, applications can be easily built using standard web technologies. In addition, its single integrated stack offers multiplatform portability. For device manufacturers, it provides a single web-centric platform to run across multiple devices. As a result, the end user benefits from a fast, immersive user experience.

    “webOS is the only platform designed from the ground up to be mobile, cloud-connected and scalable,” said Meg Whitman, HP president and chief executive officer. “By contributing this innovation, HP unleashes the creativity of the open source community to advance a new generation of applications and devices.”

    HP will make the underlying code of webOS available under an open source license. Developers, partners, HP engineers and other hardware manufacturers can deliver ongoing enhancements and new versions into the marketplace.

    HP will engage the open source community to help define the charter of the open source project under a set of operating principles:
    • The goal of the project is to accelerate the open development of the webOS platform
    • HP will be an active participant and investor in the project
    • Good, transparent and inclusive governance to avoid fragmentation
    • Software will be provided as a pure open source project
    HP also will contribute ENYO, the application framework for webOS, to the community in the near future along with a plan for the remaining components of the user space.

    Beginning today, developers and customers are invited to provide input and suggestions here.

    VIA Collaborates with OpenChrome on Open Source Video Driver

    VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the next step in its ongoing cooperation with the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community.

    Building on the recent release of the VIA graphics driver available on the VIA Linux Portal, VIA is actively collaborating with the OpenChrome development team on their Open Source graphics driver – initially assisting with multi-head support and RandR function.

    Harald Welte, recently contracted by VIA to help refine VIA's Open Source strategy and to optimize its support for Linux across all the components of its x86 processor platforms, has been working closely with both VIA and the FOSS community to enhance the quality and public availability of VIA documentation for developers. Graphics programming manuals for both the VIA CX700M and VX800 chipsets are now available on X.Org and the VIA framebuffer driver source has been checked in to the 2.6.28 mainline kernel.

    "This cooperation between the community-based OpenChrome developers and VIA's staff developers will enable everyone to shift towards one code base, combining the features and strengths of both drivers," said Mr. Welte. "It also shows that VIA is not only releasing source code and documentation, but actively moving towards a much more open and collaborative driver R&D process."

    "This is a welcome and significant step forward from VIA; the availability of free platform documentation is an essential component for greater open source community developer involvement, to everyone's benefit," said Xavier Bachelot, a developer with the OpenChrome project. "We expect that pooling our development resources and working in a public repository on a consolidated codebase in this way will result in a more feature-complete driver, and a simpler and enhanced experience for the users."

    About OpenChrome

    The OpenChrome project is committed to providing and supporting fully free and Open Source drivers that take full advantage of the hardware acceleration of VIA chipsets featuring the VIA UniChrome, UniChrome Pro and Chrome9 integrated graphics processors.

    Source code, releases and documentation may be found here.
