Palm WebOS Mojo SDK now available to all

Palm Pre webOS

had to do something in response to Apple disabling Pre media syncing in iTunes yesterday, and they’ve fired back by finally releasing the Palm Mojo SDK for WebOS. High points here include the fact that the Mojo SDK is freely available to anyone who wants to download it. While that is nice, we’d prefer Palm taking app submissions immediately, as opposed to sometime later this fall. They are already playing catch-up with their App Catalog when compared to Apple’s App Store, but hey, this is Palm, what do you expect?

If you want to develop for the and other WebOS devices down the road, grab the Mojo SDK now.

Apple Snow Leopard Developer Preview Update 10A411 now available

Snow Leopard 10A411

Just five days after Apple released Snow Leopard dev build 10A402a, we now have another new release in Developer Preview Update 10A411. This latest update is 748MB in size, and according to Apple, includes “general operating system fixes for stability, compatibility, and security.”  Getting a bit more specific though, a reader on the MacRumors forums has pinpointed a few changes:

  • Dock Expose now previews windows from other spaces.
  • Expose’s animations are very smooth now. I think they sped up the animation, so the user’s perception of the OS is visually faster as well.
  • In the Desktop & Screen Saver preference pane, selecting “Change picture every…” and then “Random Order” does not select a random photo at first—the first photo will always be selected.
  • A bug is still present where applications do not retain proper focus when activating spaces. For instance, this Safari window is in focus, and a Preference Pane is opened behind it. Start spaces—and the pane appears on top.
  • No put back for items trashed from Dock or stacks.
  • Updated QuickTime.
  • Items can now be dragged to trash from stacks.
  • Trashed desktop items no longer fade away.

Once again, the update is available through Software Update, so have at it.
