After two years of unstopped development, and six month of continued work for eyeOS 1.0 with a maximized team
, we're proud to announce the release of eyeOS 1.0
Starting from the installer, which now uncompresses the whole eyeOS system from a package and creates a randomized directory to place eyeOS in, so access directly from the browser is impossible -even with the randomized name, since access from outside is denied by default-, everything in the new eyeOS has been redesigned and rewritten, thinking in a really scalable web Operating System and platform to develop web applications on.
The new eyeOS incorporates lots of new utilities and some new base applications completely renewed, like eyeFiles and eyeCalendar. With the new eyeFiles, you can manage your files by opening as many instances of eyeFiles as you want and working with your data like if you were in your traditional Operating System. From simple actions like copying and pasting over multiple instances to powerful actions like downloading full directories as zip files.
The way to make new applications has been redesigned too. Making an app for eyeOS 1.0 is as simple as joining "widgets" (from an imagebox to a sortable table) and creating functions for them, just like any other IDE, but for creating Web Applications!. For example, a rich word processor with dialogs for opening / saving files can be done in less than 30 lines.
With this, eyeOS 1.0 introduces a revolutionary new way of creating web applications, making the programmer forget AJAX, HTML, user and processes management, global security and many other thinks to take care on when you're working on a new Web Application from scratch.
Finally, the internal part of eyeOS has been also redesigned, and now bases its power on a microkernel that loads services and libaries when needed for each user, controlling each action trought a processes table, which can be acceded from an application (eyeProcess).
