Palm OS Developer Suite v1.0 Final Available
PalmSource has officially released the final 1.0 version of the Palm OS Developer Suite (PODS). This is a new collection of tools supporting software development from Palm OS 4 to Palm OS Cobalt and Garnet.
Developers can download this release here. It is available as a single ZIP file (196MB) or as a split ZIP file (ten 20MB chunks). There are separate source code downloads for components distributed under open source licenses. This release is only intended to run on systems with Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows XP; other host operating systems, including older versions of Windows, are not supported yet at this time.
Key Features of PODS v1.0:
- support for development for Palm OS Protein APIs (x86 and ARM), 68K, and PACE Native Objects
- based on the open-source Eclipse IDE, version 2.1.2 and Eclipse C/C++ Developer Tools, version 1.2.1.
- Managed Make support eliminates need to manually edit makefiles
- integrated debugging support for Palm OS Simulators, Palm OS Emulator (POSE), and most devices with serial or USB connectivity
- standalone Palm OS Resource Editor with support for XRD resource format
- integrated build environment and command-line build tools
- bundled SDKs and simulators for Palm OS Garnet (5.4 and earlier) and Palm OS Cobalt (6.0.1)
This IDE, based on the open-source Eclipse IDE originally developed by IBM, enables developers to create ARM-Native Palm OS Protein Powered applications for Palm OS Cobalt 6.0, as well as 68K applications for all shipping versions of Palm OS. The IDE combines compilers, debuggers, simulators, device emulators, and related tools into a comprehensive, integrated development suite known as Palm OS Developer Platform.
This release should not be installed over an existing PODS setup. It is strongly recommended users uninstall previous versions before installing this release.
