  • Release Feature Date Status
  • 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.
