PalmSource Announces New ARM Developer Toolkit
PalmSource today introduced its Fast ARM Solutions Toolkit (FAST). FAST provides developers with an easier and faster path toward creating ARM native applications for Palm OS 5 that will be compatible with future versions of the operating system.
"FAST keeps the promise of compatibility for future Palm OS systems and provides developers with a much improved development environment for optimizing their applications," said David Nagel, president and CEO of PalmSource, Inc.
FAST allows developers to more easily optimize applications for higher performance, extracting the full power of ARM. It includes the new Palm OS Debugger 2.0 (POD), which will allow developers to write and debug code faster. Integrated development tools and runtime libraries are also key parts of the package and include a new product from Metrowerks, Code Warrior, 9.2. Other features and benefits of FAST include:
FAST is an improved methodology over the existing ARMlet development support PSI offered since the first release of Palm OS 5. FAST's new features provide more developers easier access to increased performance by allowing them to add ARM native code into existing 68k Palm OS applications. The toolkit also provides compatibility with OS 6 and future Palm OS versions.
FAST will be distributed free of charge via PalmSource's Developer Support website within approximately 60 days.
