The Palm Developer Network Blog has posted an update regarding the release timeline for the Mojo SDK and more early access program details.
Regarding the early access program, Palm is accelerating the growth of the early access program inline with the growth of resources, publishing webOS specific information outside of the early access program to spark interest, revise confidentiality rules to allow for more freedom when discussing Mojo-developed projects, and opening SDK access as soon as possible.
To that end, Palm has now delayed the release of the SDK to the “end of Summer” timeline to allow for further software and developer services support which it states is not ready at this time.
Palm also responded to the activity of the past week where the operating system image was leaked, and developers began showing off homebrew applications using conventional Linux tools.
In a vague statement, Palm dismissed the burgeoning unofficial developer and hacker community by stating:
“Weâ€™re focused on building a robust and easy-to-use Mojo SDK, and an ecosystem that benefits developers, end users, carriers and Palm alike. As on any popular platform, we recognize that some developers will experiment in ways that cross official boundaries, but we believe that our formal offerings â€“ and community efforts built around those offerings â€“ will provide the best experience for the vast majority of webOS developers and users.”
