During Palm’s Developer Day conference this past weekend, the manufacturer took time out to introduce a new slate of functionality and tools for developers to use. Palm has confirmed that the improvements should be available to owners by Fall.
Palm will open up hardware access to the microphone and camera via new API calls, add new security and cryptography features, a “media indexer” API that will simplify media application development, support for Bonjour, zero-configuration networking and the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile for third party accessory support. HTML5 support is also improved with the addition of hardware accelerated CSS animation, which will speed up application transitions in webOS
