BlackBerry 10 + <canvas> + Got Game Port-a-Thon

Hello everyone,

 

This is a common topic we've been discussing over the past two weeks so I wanted to make this post to ensure developers are aware of the following:

 

1) In the current public release of the BlackBerry 10 OS (10.0.9.1103) combined with the WebWorks SDK (1.0.3.8) there is a known <canvas> issue which prevents content from being rendered in a lot of cases.

 

2) This issue has been addressed and implemented into our latest builds, and should be available in our Gold SDK/OS release tomorrow (Dec. 11th.) Note, I say should be because until the actual release build is confirmed, things can change.

 

3) The approval deadline for Got Game Port-a-Thon resubmissions has been extended until December 23rd.

 

This means that the recommendation would be to use the Gold SDK / tools to repackage and test your applications that experienced issues as a result of <canvas>. If you still see issues, let us know.

 

WIth the approval extension, this should hopefully give you some extra time to ensure your application is working as intended before resubmitting. Note that December 23rd is an approval deadline, so it would be best to submit earlier to ensure you get approval by that date. Of course, only resubmissions of applications originally submitted during the Port-a-Thon will count towards your rewards.

 

Feel free to ask any questions here.

The deadline is for the first Got Game Port-A-Thon.

If you submitted an app during the Port-A-Thon and it was not approved you can re-submit it 1 time and if it's approved by December 23rd the app qualifies for prizes.

Just to add, we're being pretty lenient on the number of resubmissions.

Regarding the Gold SDK (re: nemoryoliver's question), new tools for each platform are available.

Jan 31 is the release date, If it does, it will be before the relase date I think.
