  • Added the end-user license agreement (EULA)

webOS OSE CLI v1.6.4 (March 2018)

This is the first official release of CLI for webOS OSE. For a detailed list of key features, see CLI Overview.

The list below shows known issues of this release.

Known issues

  • Web Inspector and Node Inspector work on Blink-based browsers (Chrome and Opera) but not on non-Blink browsers (Internet Explorer, FireFox, and Safari).

  • The emulator should be running prior to using ares-install or ares-launch commands. CLI does not run the emulator automatically.

  • ares-server and ares-inspect commands are not terminated on their own, and can only be terminated manually by pressing Ctrl+C.

  • ares-package shows an error message if an app filename contains non-ASCII characters. (App filenames should contain Latin letters ONLY.)

  • ares-setup-device --search|-s (Search webOS Devices) is not working, because webOS OSE does not contain upnpd.
