First Pubic Beta of PDK for webOS SDK


Palm have announced the public beta release of the Plug-In Developer Kit (PDK) for webOS SDK.

The PDK component brings new functionality to webOS, including 3D graphics. It also incorporates the multimedia library SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) and the OpenGL ES graphics API, giving developers who have built games for other platforms, a way to port this existing code to the webOS platform. It also ships with its own tools for the development and debugging of plug-ins for webOS applications. See the Release Notes for more information.

Please note that although the PDK is now at open beta, developers will require additional functionality to deploy PDK-developed applications. This functionality will not be available until the middle of 2010, when the next version of webOS is released.
