Palm released webOS version 1.2 along with the accompanying update of its Mojo software development kit. Highlights of the revamped SDK include:

Improved installation and development platform support. Mojo now supports Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), Windows 7 Beta (32- and 64-bit) and Windows Vista 64-bit. Palm Developer Community Manager Chuq Von Rospach adds on the Palm Developer Network Blog adds Mojo SDK v1.2 also addresses a number of configuration and installation issues reported by webOS developers.

New and improved SDK tools. The new palm-log tool promises more efficient app debugging by displaying or tailing an app's log output including JavaScript syntax errors and runtime exceptions. The v1.2 SDK also includes a new webOS Resource Monitor (WORM) tool to help developers monitor an app's memory usage, as well as an updated Palm Inspector with improved reload functionality and reliability.

New and enhanced APIs. Mojo v1.2 addresses what Von Rospach calls "perhaps the single most popular request"--the new Download Manager API , which lets apps download and upload files over HTTP.

Consumers should begin receiving Palm webOS 1.2 as an over-the-air update delivered within the next few days. Marquee additions include support for premium application purchases from Palm App Catalog (users can enter their credit card information for when paid apps appear) as well as integration of LinkedIn contacts, media downloads from the Amazon MP3 Store over 3G, and cut-and-paste for webpages and emails.
