webos legacy emulation

Good news for developers of legacy apps for webOS, it has been confirmed that apps written in the older Mojo framework will continue to function, thanks to an emulation window which will provide back and forward buttons. Despite the “emulation” term being thrown about, it’s been said that the apps will be supported natively in webOS 3.0, which will be good news for performance buffs. There are still questions to the whole thing, though, such as how Meta-Tap (that requires the gesture area) will work and what resolution these apps will be displayed in. Still, it’s a step in the right direction, as developers won’t lose all the hard work that they previously put into the app.
