The long wait is over #LuneOS and #webOS fans! We’re back with a new release called “Decaf” which we believe will be a milestone in terms of developments and the way forward!
So you’re wondering what we’ve been up to the past 2+ months?
Well, actually a whole lot when you look at our changelog! We’ve been able to migrate from Qt 5.7 via 5.8 to 5.9.2 which is a long term support (LTS) release of Qt. This brings our web capabilities a lot more up to date! We’re on Chromium 56 based release now which dates back to January this year. This brings a lot of interesting new and modern HTML5 features such as Web Components that are used by Google’s Polymer framework, for example. It also offers us better plugin support. It’s now technically possible to sideload Flash & WideVine plugins and the sites using these can see and use the plugins. The plugins cannot be distributed in the image due to licensing issues, but users are free to sideload them.
This opens up the possibility to watch DRM protected content on sites like Netflix, YouTube etc.

Over summer things always slow down a bit which is why we didn’t have a release last month. It’s about quality and because we basically had too many loose ends that needed fixing before we could push out a release we held off until this month. We’re very pleased to present you our latest monthly stable release, Caffè Crema or “Crema” for short.

No April Fools jokes here folks. Just a fresh cup of the April LuneOS stable build, Café au lait or “au lait” for short. Lots of changes this month. There better be since we didn’t produce a changelog for last month’s nightlies-only releases, amirite? Hopefully we haven’t disappointed you.
Grab your Nexus 4 or HP TouchPad (or emulator) and load up our latest builds!
