- Upgrading Chromium to v108
For more details on this release, see the release notes.
Eliminating Dependencies Between Media Services
In this release, we eliminated dependencies between media services.
Until the previous version, developers have to call methods from multiples APIs to implement some media functionalities. This usage scenario was not quite user-friendly. So we refactored our media services, especially focused on eliminating dependencies between media services.
As a first step, we’ve added a new recording service and standalone preview functionality. See also related API references:
New Recording Service
In this release, we’ve introduced a new API for media recording.
com.webos.service.mediarecorder provides an interface to record in webOS devices.
Standalone Preview Functionality
We refactored the media-related services, now developers only need one API (
com.webos.service.camera2) to implement the preview functionality.
Upgrading Chromium to v108
The web engine of webOS OSE has been upgraded from Chromium 94 to Chromium 108. See Chromium branches for more information.
