This month's scheduled release includes support for Node.js as well as updates to Enyo and Ares. In addition, we are pleased to announce early delivery of the System Manager Bus (which was originally scheduled for July) and a release of three policy components based on our Platform Portability Layer. We're happy to be ahead of schedule in getting this component of the Open webOS platform into your hands." Can't wait for the day I can run an up-to-date WebOS version on my SII.

It will be curious to see how competing HTML heavy platforms try to distinguish themselves, yet provide opportunity for portability that seems to be the underlying premise behind an HTML based application platform (once you get beyond base line familiarity).

If Tizen and WebOS can come to some reasonable common ground in terms of platform features as exposed via HTML5, then app writers can target both, and device makers can focus on other issues than app availability in terms of platform choice. But if they're still racing to distinguish themselves in to oblivion, I don't know what else could be done.
