The BlackBerry Dev Team is on fire this week! In addition to the ongoing Cascades webinars, which focus on using the NDK to develop apps for BB10, they announced an update to the Ripple Emmulator and the WebWorks for BlackBerry10 SDK today. This update brings new API's as well as a slew of bug fixes. Here is a teaser of the new API's
We have also added an API that, in conjunction with the standard HTML5 onLine API, will let you know just how connected you really are. The standard navigator.onLine property and online/offline events are supported to let you know if your application has connectivity in general. If you would like to know what type of connection you have and when the type of connection changes, check out our blackberry.connection.type property, and listen for the connectionchange event. This will tell you if you are on VPN, BlackBerry® Bridge™, WiFi®, etc.
Make sure to check the links below to download the Ripple Emulator from the WebWorks microsite. You will need to also download Google's Chrome Browser, as the emulator runs as a Chrome Extension. Lets keep the RIM train rolling along and let us know what BlackBerry 10 apps you are working on in the forums!
