We're proud to announce the new version 0.9.3 of eyeOS. It includes an updated default theme, which loads faster and adds full support for Internet Explorer 7. The bubbles from eyeHome and eyeEdit have been adapted to the new theme, and the Application Manager has now a Viewer with all apps ordered by categories.

eyeEdit (eyeOS' word processor) has been also updated with the new version of it's core. Some bugs in eyePhones and eyeMessages regarding the textareas under Internet Explorer have been fixed too.

New developers + eyeOS AJAX kernel project

We're proud to announce that the eyeOS Developers Community has grown with the inclusion of three new members:

Lars Daniel Forseth and Steffen Thaldorf study Applied Computer Science at the University of Cooperative Education in Stuttgart / Germany and have decided to do a thesis on eyeOS, working on the next step of the kernel. They will be working on the thesis from October 2006 to May 2007, and will focus their work on developing a full AJAX based kernel for eyeOS.

Also, we have a new member who started as an expert security researcher, but has moved to the main developement of the system and is working actually on new features for the next releases 0.9.3 and 0.9.4, Jose Carlos Norte.

The three complete the developers community with Lars Knickrehm (creator of eyeOS German Community), Tristan Siebers (creator of eyeOS Nederland community and MiniServer) and Björn Ahrens (creator of microServer).

So thanks a lot to all you (and the rest of the community who contributes writting documentation, translating, testing and designing!). We'll be posting about the process of all this work.

Stay tuned!

eyeOS 0.9.2 released: eyeOS Mobile

We're proud to announce the new version of eyeOS, 0.9.2, which includes some bug fixes and a new feature designed to take the files stored in eyeHome (the eyeOS' file manager) to everywhere: the eyeOS Mobile platform.

With the new version, eyeOS incorporates now a Mobile Access to it, that allows viewing, downloading and uploading files from any cell phone with a web browser. It's accessible from a file called "m.php" in the root of eyeOS. As always, you can download the new version from the eyeOS Downloads page.

If you have an account in the official eyeOS Free Server, you can test the new Mobile eyeOS from from a mobile phone or desktop web browser.

Thanks to everybody who is contributing with the project!
