BlackBerry NDK 2.0 Available Now!

[ Edited ]

From the blog post here:  http://devblog.blackberry.com/2011/11/blackberry-native-sdk/

 

Want to stay ahead of the game? Try out the new version of the Native SDK for the BlackBerry PlayBook

 

I’m jazzed about the news – the first beta release of version 2.0 of the Native SDK for the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet is now available. To get started, developers can download the Native SDK here. In addition to this new release, developers have access to the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 Developer Beta as a device update as well as the BlackBerry Tablet Simulator.

 

Here’s a quick rundown of what’s available in the 2.0 beta 1 release of the Native SDK:

 

  • Added Sensors API (magnetometer, gyroscope, and accelerometer support) (device only for now, not available for the simulator at this time)
  • Added Payment Service support for subscriptions and in-app purchasing
  • IDE improvements in usability, performance, and reliability
  • Scoreloop SDK 1.0 Beta 1 is included – try out some social game features for your apps, such as leaderboards

Please note that the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 Developer Beta is available for developers and is NOT designed for consumer use. If you’ve installed this build and would like to return your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to the current version, check out our guide on the Inside BlackBerry Help Blog.

 

How to update your BlackBerry PlayBook OS to the Developer Beta Build

The information needed for native developers is being hosted off the Native SDK developer microsite. If you wish to upgrade your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to this Developer Beta release, you will need to register your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet PIN using a form hosted on the microsite.

From the link to register your device PIN, simply enter your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet PIN and your email address; review the Terms and Conditions and check the box to indicate your agreement; then click “Submit”.

Within an hour, you should see a  icon in the status bar on your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. You’ll have 24 hours to complete the upgrade, which can be done by following these simple steps:

  1. Tap in the top-right corner of the screen
  2. Tap “Software Updates”
  3. Tap “Check for Updates”
  4. Complete the update.
  5. If the update is still not available after an hour, or you experience any issues with the update, pleasevisit the support forums.

Keep on coding – and send us your feedback!

I'm getting "Oops... Something went wrong while handling your request. You could try again a little later or you could file a bugreport", errors.

Re: BlackBerry NDK 2.0 Available Now!

On "https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/native/beta/download", I click on "Native SDK for Tablet OS" blue button (for windows), and nothing happens in IE8.  In FireFox, I get the DIV and instructions to download the installer.

Re: BlackBerry NDK 2.0 Available Now!

I installed the Akamai installer and it prompted me to place the "installer-bbndk-2.0.0-beta1-win32-4867-...exe.part" file and I did, but then nothing happens. The 479631KB part file is there, but nothing is happening nor can I do anything with the .part file. any thoughts?

Re: BlackBerry NDK 2.0 Available Now!

Will there be a C++ framework around the C NDK, or if we want one, do we need to roll our own?

I closed the popup to install the downloader and it offered me to use browser to download.

Re: BlackBerry NDK 2.0 Available Now!

Click "run" or "open" to start the installer.

Dont see the installer? Try reopening it.

 

And the "reopening it" link does nothing.

For those having download issues check your security settings to make sure you are not blocking HTTP content on an HTTPS page.

 

The page itself is loaded via HTTPS but the download is delivered over HTTP.
