BB 10 WebWorks problem with BBui.js Sceen Menus with blackberry.app.event on in config.xml

I'm trying to put a menu in a BB 10 WebWorks app using BBui.js. 


Here it says:




"For bbUI menus to work on PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 you will need to include the feature:

<feature id="blackberry.app.event"/>"


When I try to package it the output says:


"Failed to find feature with id: blackberry.app.event"


and won't build.


I followed this the right way: https://github.com/blackberry/bbUI.js/wiki/Screen-Menus


It looks like that API isn;t baked for BB10 yet:




Is that the problem? Is the BBui.js screen menu not ready for BB10 WebWorks apps or am I missing something?

I noticed that when trying to build the sample app.


Various features were specified in the sample that were not permitted for the Dev Alpha.


However when I commented out the features the app built and deployed to my device.


I do have a problem with touch sensitivity (have to tap two or three times quickly on some items), but visually it looks fine.


I guess my problem could be related to the lack of support for features but the app does work. One strategy might be to use the components anyway, and live with any usability issues until the support is released. Hopefully we'll be getting updates before the devices are launched (latest rumours from one of the blogs is as early as August for launch).
