Following up on our blog post yesterday, we’d like to share with you some of the features which will be available in the new Joli OS 1.2 later this week. Tomorrow, we’ll show you screenshots of the next version of the Jolicloud Desktop, our online product.

New Startup Experience

We’ve redesigned the boot and login screens.

Guest Mode

We have introduced a Guest Mode to let your friends safely borrow your computer: they browse the Web in guest mode, and their files and settings are saved in a disposable file system that is swept away once they’re done. If they already have a Jolicloud account, they can automatically retrieve their Jolicloud personal desktop.

New File Browser

In Joli OS 1.2, we have integrated the local file system inside the Jolicloud desktop. You can browse your local and external files (USB keys, SD cards, hard drives), preview documents and see how much disk space you have available.

Continuous Desktop Experience

All Joli OS users can access their personal desktop from any HTML5 capable browser. The goal is to offer a continuous desktop experience on multiple devices. If you own multiple computers running Joli OS they will be automatically synchronized.

If you’re using Chrome, we recommend you install the Jolicloud app from the Chrome Web Store.

Auto-Login

One of the much requested features was the ability to automatically log into your session on start-up.

Performance Improvements

We have improved the update management process. Your updates will now download automatically in the background and if you want, you can choose to delay them until you’ve finished your session.

Joli OS 1.2 users will also enjoy the latest Chromium 10 browser and the most recent update of Flash 10.2. The OS runs faster on older machines.

In addition, we’ve made lots of other optimizations to the OS, which will enhance your overall experience of Joli OS. In particular, you’ll notice that your Web apps now install and sync in a flash.

All users will be automatically upgraded to 1.2. As usual, our support team is here to help you if you need.

Stay tuned for more details about the upcoming new Jolicloud desktop.

Happy Joliclouding!

  1. Not a fan at this point, feel like this OS is making the cloud more work than it needs to be. There is potential here though.
