Version 1.0 of PhoneGap HTML5 app platform launches
Launched at PhoneGap Day in Portland, version 1.0 of the HTML5 app platform focuses on accessing native device APIs, as well as improving the overall API stability and "pluggable" architecture. According to the developers, the plugin development process has been simplified; a unifying bridge interface to simplify adding platforms and extensions is also included.
Other changes include improved W3C DAP API compatibility, a Contacts API and updated remote debugging tools. The project's roadmap offers a list of features planned for future versions.
