Dear Community,
 
<br>
 
<br>
 
You may have noticed that efforts are under way to significantly rework our Wiki.  The changes are aimed at:
 
* re-organising the Wiki pages into more logical categories;
 
* making Developer Resources / Guides, information on Ports for specific devices and the Team's other projects easier to locate; and
 
* ensuring there is more consistency across the Wiki pages.
 
<br>
 
Please be patient with us while we work towards making it easier for your access the information you need!

Dear Community,
 
<br>
 
<br>
 
Today we're pleased to announce an <b>Alpha 2</b> release. We have worked very hard over the past few months to achieve our goals of having a usable device running Open webOS, but due to a variety of factors we aren't as far as we thought we could be. Nevertheless, we have now implemented some important features that warrant the <b>Alpha 2</b> release.
 
<br>
 
<br>
 
These features include:
 
* Video Acceleration for card web apps (not perfect yet)
 
* Audio playback support (including HTML5 audio support)
 
* Telephony support through the Android telephony stack (based on the great work of the Ubuntu Touch project. Thank you very much guys!)
 
** Mostly not available through the UI, but if you put a SIM card with unlocked PIN into your device you will notice the telephony indicator.
 
<br>
 
Our porting efforts are currently based on top of the [https://github.com/libhybris/libhybris  libhybris project], which enables us to utilize Android hardware drivers to support most hardware dependent components such as accelerated graphics, telephony, sensors, and GPS.  [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybris_(software)  libhybris] is the same key component that powers Ubuntu Touch and provides it with the ability to be ported to Android-based devices.  Our developers are continuously contributing to the [https://github.com/libhybris/libhybris  libhybris project] so that we can share work developed as part our implementation of the [https://github.com/libhybris/libhybris  libhybris project], with the project's other users (eg. Mer, Salfish and Ubuntu Touch).
 
<br>
 
<br>
 
Whilst we have already achieved a lot, we are still not quite at the point of having a usable day phone or tablet.  This is mainly due to the fact that we still have a lot work to do on the applications side to build out missing functionality. Work has already commenced to port Preware to Enyo 2, but there are still a lot of other areas in which we need help. We have created a list with things we need help with [http://www.webos-ports.org/wiki/Help_Wanted here].  If you're a webOS enthusiast or like our projects, please feel free to contribute.  You can find all ways to contact us [http://www.webos-ports.org/wiki/Communications  here]. We need all the help we can get to achieve our final goal of having a usable phone & tablet!
