webOS 3.0.5 to bring the bug fixes
It hasn’t even been two months since webOS 3.0.4 was released, bringing bug fixes, massive speed improvements, and a new camera app to the TouchPad mix. Now we’re hearing that webOS 3.0.5 is right around the corner, being that Release Candidate 1 of the updated OS has been released in the Early Access Program.
Like 3.0.4 and 3.0.2 before it, 3.0.5 is focused on fixing bugs in webOS and making small improvements. Included is a new “sensor API” for PDK applications, support for SDL hybrid apps to utilize both cores of the TouchPad processor, and a bug fix for hanging WebSQL calls (affecting some Enyo apps like Paper Mache). Also present in webOS 3.0.5 will be support for HTML5 video in all screen orientations, double space for a period, low disk space download alerts, and the incorporation of a homebrew patch to enable support for binary data in the Bluetooth SPP service.
Like we said, bug fixes and not much else. Seeing as webOS 3.0.5 is currently sitting at RC1, HP has ironed out the intended issues for this release and is giving it one last round of testing before release. We wouldn’t be surprised if we see webOS 3.0.5 getting pushed out to TouchPad owners the globe over by the end of the month.
