  • Release Feature Date Status

    Updates to the SDK in order to support the BlackBerry Classic device's new hardware buttons and integrated trackpad.
  • W13 NEW API PLUG-INS JUN landed

    We added an API plug-in to support the BlackBerry Passport's touch-enabled keyboard. This new plug-in has been added to GitHub and the Cordova API registry.
  • W12 Enhanced Tooling May landed

    Minor enhancements to the GUI tool including ability to target multiple devices for deployment, and specifying params.json for builds (see parameters for debug builds).
  • W12 Headless Apps May landed

    Project templates and sample apps showing top use cases for integration between a WebWorks app and a native headless service.
  • W12 Work perim. debug May landed

    Ability to deploy a work application into the work perimeter and debug with web inspector on a USB-connected device. This will require special IT policy settings on the BES 10 server.
  • W12 APIs May landed

    Promotion of the keep awake, barcode scanning, and screenshot community APIs to fully supported APIs packaged with the SDK.
  • W11 Enhanced Tooling Mar landed

    Incorporate feedback from the beta, as well as some additional functionality in the GUI tool (eg. Linux support, API plugin management, more config.xml value management, management of signing certificates).
  • W10 Cordova Alignment Nov landed

    We will leverage the Apache Cordova open source project as the foundation of the BlackBerry 10 WebWorks SDK. The wide array of tools and frameworks being built around Apache Cordova will bring the promise of cross-platform development closer to reality for BlackBerry web developers.
  • W10 Enhanced Tooling Nov landed

    In an effort to simplify the development process and ease the transition to an Apache Cordova based BlackBerry WebWorks SDK, we are delivering a browser-based GUI tool that will allow for project management, build/sign/deploy to simulator and device, and basic config.xml information management. We will be looking to build out more functionality for this tool in coming releases.
    The command line tools have also been enhanced, as they are now based on the Cordova CLI, but with some BlackBerry-specific enhancements, such as auto-detection of USB connected devices, and automatic creation/deployment of debug tokens.
