The BlackBerry WebWorks framework and all of the APIs are open sourced and are available on GitHub. Developers can now contribute and participate in the evolution of the BlackBerry WebWorks project.
To streamline development work even further, RIM has aligned the versioning of the two platforms so that developers can deploy applications on the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS and Smartphones.
RIM has also introduced the final version of its BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR, which includes the following changes:
- Special APIs for the BlackBerry PlayBook Plugins for Adobe Flash Builder
- A BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet Simulator
- A Getting Started Guide
"With this update of the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR, RIM gives developers the opportunity to leverage a strong competitive advantage, the Adobe AIR technology's capability to enable developers to share code across multiple platforms, thereby offering them the benefit of a wide choice of development environments," says the company.
