The Ubuntu SDK that serves as a toolkit for Ubuntu's "converged platform" of mobile and desktop as one, has now reached beta form.
The Ubuntu SDK has long been a desire
since Ubuntu Touch with a mobile and tablet focus appeared on the radar. After doing an Ubuntu SDK Alpha, a beta was planned for July
and now Canonical has managed to deliver.
The Ubuntu SDK Beta features support for the Apache Cordova APIs to write HTML5 apps, an Ubuntu SDK HTML5 theme, a responsive layout, a template for Scopes, a preview of their new Click packaging technology, theme engine improvements, a unified actions API, and U1DB Ubuntu One cloud integration.
