When HP announced to the world their commitment to make webOS open source by the Fall of this year, they gave us a little road map of how things would roll out.
Strangely enough, items on the road map have fallen into place exactly when they were promised – Enyo 2.0, UI widgets, etc. Next up on the timeline is something that many developers are anticipating – the release of Ares 2.0. According to HP, Ares 2.0 will be released this month.
What is Ares? Well, besides the Greek god of war, Ares is an online development tool for webOS that you run right from your browser. It offers a drag-and-drop interface, allowing for quick development and debugging of simple mojo apps.
Ares 2.0 will bring the development tool to the Enyo 2.0 era – great news for developers who are ready to start learning and developing for the platform.
Also, scheduled for release this month is Enyo 2.1.
