Today, we are happy to announce that Tizen beta source code and SDK are available. We encourage developers to start working with these new features and functionality to provide feedback that can be used to improve Tizen during the final stages of its development. You can visit the community page to learn more about participating.
Compared with the earlier code preview, the beta has additional features, tools, and other improvements, including:
- SDK support for Windows, in addition to Ubuntu
- SDK source code is now available
- Tizen Web UI framework extends jQuery Mobile to make developing web applications easier with optimized widgets.
- Tizen Web API provides more features, such as setting an alarm, accessing media contents, retrieving system information, and more.
Please keep in mind that, like the earlier version, this is a preview and not yet designed for use to create production applications. Further enhancements and improvements to Tizen and its development environment will continue as we work towards a final release, targeted for the second quarter of 2012.
We look forward to getting feedback and making additional enhancements to Tizen over the coming months.
