Maru OS now comes with An­droid Marsh­mal­low

OpenSource For You - - Foss Bytes -

Maru OS, which got open sourced ear­lier this year, has now been up­dated to ver­sion 0.3. The new up­date brings An­droid 6.0.1 Marsh­mal­low to all vir­tual en­vi­ron­ments, in­clud­ing desk­tops and mo­bile de­vices.

Orig­i­nally run­ning on An­droid 5.1 Lol­lipop, Maru OS now pro­vides the Marsh­mal­low flavour. The ar­rival of the new An­droid plat­form on Maru OS comes along with fea­tures such as im­proved power man­age­ment, en­hanced app per­mis­sions and up-to-date se­cu­rity patches.

Apart from An­droid Marsh­mal­low, Maru OS v0.3 al­lows users to start the Maru Desk­top ex­pe­ri­ence on a large screen even with­out an HDMI screen. Users just need to en­able Maru Desk­top from the dash­board to run the ser­vice in the back­ground. This helps if the Maru OS-en­abled phone is yet to be plugged into an HDMI dis­play. Also, you can use SSH ser­vices if you have switched to the desk­top mode.

For high-res­o­lu­tion dis­plays with over a 1080p pixel-count, Maru OS now comes with an ‘En­hanced res­o­lu­tion match­ing’ mode. This grabs the na­tive res­o­lu­tion of the con­nected dis­play and over­rides the de­vice’s stock match­ing al­go­rithm. The up­dated ver­sion ad­di­tion­ally in­cludes sev­eral per­for­mance im­prove­ments and bug fixes.

You can up­grade your ex­ist­ing Maru OS de­vice to ver­sion 0.3 by fol­low­ing an up­grad­ing guide on GitHub. It is worth not­ing here that if you are about to in­stall the op­er­at­ing sys­tem for the first time and want to ex­pe­ri­ence vir­tual en­vi­ron­ments on An­droid, you need to have a Nexus 5.
