HP has decided to open source parts of webOS 3.0.5 and labeled it as community edition. Though we are very happy about this baby step towards open sourcing, the actual open sourcing is far from real at present.

According to a blog post at HP webOS developer blog

Note that this release is not directly related to our Open webOS project, which remains dedicated to open sourcing an up-leveled version of webOS…

…We are publishing this legacy code to provide members of our community around the globe the ability to work with legacy devices using the current platform. One of our core values is that as many components of future and legacy operating systems should be open to the community. We value the contributions the webOS community has made over the past few years, and hope that this additional release will help you better understand the platform and create a constructive environment for moving forward as Open webOS itself is released.

Finally some sense towards the legacy devices…!!!
