Ok, we know the Simulator is Winodws only...but what about the rest of the PODS? Will it run on Mac OS X?

In our developer tools roadmap, shown during this morning's keynote, Mac OS X support in the Palm OS Developer Suite was slated for a 1.5 release in Q2 2005. This is a feature that is under active development at PalmSource.

And Linux too - no?

I'd settle for a Simulator that is ported to "Linux" using Winelib. In fact, i'd even settle for one that runs properly under Wine!

PalmSource Releases Palm OS Developer Suite 1.1

When I first read this news item I was confused. Wasn't PODS 1.0 released some time ago? Checking the PIC new archive I find, yes last August: . Do you not instead mean PODS v1.1?

While we released PODS 1.0 back in August, the press release was held until the developer confernece. PODS 1.1 should be out in November; we're doing limited distribution of a tech preview here in Munich.

Ben, can you share some of the enhancements that 1.1 will have over 1.0 with us? Maybe a story for your own site?

Would be nice if it would support maintaining the header file with resource constants "out of the box" (that seems like an obvious functional gap).

The 1.1 tech preview can now be downloaded from

The main updates in this release are:

- Palm OS Cobalt 6.1 SDK and Simulator
- PalmSource Installer integration
- Updated resource editor with support for Palm OS Cobalt graphic families (based on the PNG format) and form navigation resources
- Updated to use Eclipse 3.0 and CDT 2.0.1

The tech preview does not have the ability to generate header files from your XRD file. I don't know if this feature will make the final 1.1 release.
