Re: Can we use persistent memory in plugging for BBOS 5

There's a bug in BBOS5 that means localStorage don't work


We ended up abstracting it to get the stuff to work (replaced localStorage with some hack on 5)


Then we found out how bad the browser was and dropped that platform


If you're looking for a stable across all versions start at 7


If you are targeting 5 specifically I'll try to get release on our BB5 code from the bloke who wrote it
