“We’re excited to announce that Enyo 2 is officially moving out of beta! Today’s release marks a major milestone as we declare Enyo 2 production-ready, from both a functionality and quality point of view. […] That first Enyo 2 beta was pretty minimal, but we were excited to share it with the world, start developing in the open, and begin building a new community of Enyo developers. Now, less than 6 months later, Enyo 2 boasts an an amazing community of developers, a broad set of cross-platform UI widgets, and a powerful layout library for building apps that work across all form factors from phones to desktops.”

At OSNews, I will never go into Engadget-mode and explain every product, service, or whatever we link to or talk about. I have always assumed a certain degree of autonomy from our readers, and so fa, that’s been working out just fine. A silly one-line condescending description is useless – it’s always better to just read about it yourself.

Well, I made the effort of visiting the Enyo site and choosing the ‘About’ option, and I didn’t even found a clear sentence like “Enyo is…”
Sorry, but I just can’t wish any success to anyone with such failed communication style.

The FAQ is considerably more helpful.

It’s more about placing the thing in context. You probably don’t feel that need when your decision to post some news has already been made, but for many readers it could as well be ~”wait, Enyo, what was it again?” – especially considering niche projects.
Sneaking in ~”Enyo, the js framework offshot of WebOS” doesn’t seem condescending, and would immediately put it in its cognitive sphere of sorts.

I have to agree, it looks very similar to Sencha Touch.

I’d say it’s newsworthy because it means that along with Enyo, Open webOS is also one step closer to release.
According to their blog, they are aiming for a 1.0 release in September that is going to be more easily portable to a wide range of hardware.
Just nitpicking, but a sentence telling what the hell Enyo is would have been nice. I read OSnews regularly, but I haven’t the faintest idea and reading the linked blog entry didn’t help much, either (though I guess I could have looked around on the site to find out what it is about).
