RIM just announced the latest BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for BlackBerry Smartphones a couple days back. This BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Smartphones v2.1.1 brings new API’s as well as Application Functionality and is available for immediate download here!
New capabilities available to WebWorks developers for BlackBerry Smartphones are:
NTLM & BASIC Authentication support (NTLM support requires a BlackBerry Enterprise Server)
Improved rendering speeds for applications not using loading/transition screens
The Banner Indicator API allows developers to place their own icon [indication] and number in the banner area of device homescreens. A much needed function for many applications that need to notify users when they have a new message or info to check.
