Ubuntu developers can soon look forward to many improvements in the Ubuntu App development platform via its SDK.

Jono Bacon of Canonical has shared some new details after a developer sprint was held last week in Florida for the platform, SDK, and security teams along with desktop and design stakeholders. Those developers focusing upon Ubuntu's next-generation platform can find all of the details in full via Jono's blog post but some of the key takeaways include:

- Better HTML5 integration of apps.

- The full Ubuntu platform API will be available via JavaScript.

- A full emulator will be coming to the Ubuntu SDK for smart-phones, tablets, etc.

- Support for Google's Go programming language along with Qt's QML will be added to Ubuntu SDK in the next month.
