Google’s very own Fuchsia OS will be receiving its first developer preview version of Fuchsia OS. According to reports, the Fuchsia OS project created a new branch (releases/F1) at the end of January. After the new branch was created, the master branch added dozens of code changes to the F1 branch.
Later on, about six weeks after the F1 branch was created, the Fuchsia OS team created a similar “releases/F2” branch. Now, reports are being flooding stating that the Google Flutter team is also preparing for the Fuchsia F1 release.
According to sources, the repo of the Flutter engine has a branch specifically for Fuchsia F1. And now, Google is about to release the Fuchsia OS developer preview version. After almost four years since its announcement, the non-Linux-based operating system, Fuchsia OS, based on a new microkernel called Zircon, is expected to support running Android and Linux application procedures.
Last year it was hinted that Fuchsia OS was entering its final internal testing and that Google will bring developers the first Fuchsia OS preview version. At the end of last year, Google also officially released this project for external developers.
Fuchsia OS, is an open-source project similar to AOSP and will run on multiple devices. These devices include smart home devices, laptops, mobile phones, and more. Reports indicate that Nest Hub, Google’s smart home device will be one of the testing devices.
“We are developing more new features for this operating system. Some people may think this is “new Android” or “new Chrome OS”, but I would like to say that FuchsiaOS is FuchsiaOS – it is a new kind of art operating system world…The significance of the new operating system is that it can support different hardware devices, such as smart home devices, wearable devices, and even augmented reality or virtual reality devices. For mobile phones, we launched Android; for web applications, we launched Chrome OS; so the new system may also be optimized for certain devices, and our team is working in this direction.”
