Symbian^3 PDK 3.0.0 now available for download!
The PDK contains a full build of the Symbian^3 platform along with the corresponding source code, giving developers access to the S^3 feature set and providing the community with the means to engage on taking S^3 into devices.
S^3 represents a major step forward in the Symbian platform, providing a greatly improved user experience, multiple personalised homescreens, an exciting and advanced multimedia experience including HDMI support, the introduction of Next Generation Graphics, better data networking and much, much more! Symbian also commissioned a great new theme for the S^3 platform called “Fresh” which is included for the first time in this PDK. Take a look at the screenshots.
This is the first time Functionally Complete has been achieved for a fully open-sourced Symbian release and represents the transition of this latest version of the platform from largely feature submission and stabilization into the “hardening phase”. This is a key message to the community to engage with S^3! PDK 3.0.0 is the first release to support a full UI ROM executing on ARMv5 platforms.
A great opportunity to get direct experience with S^3, and learn together with others from the community, is to join the Bug Squad team on Monday 12th July which will be hosting a “hands on” IRC session. For more information, please visit the Bug Squad pages.
