Linux Support Added for BlackBerry PlayBook AIR SDK and Simulator

PlayBook Simulator

I am not sure why RIM downplayed it in their announcement but the new version of their SDK (v0.9.3) now clearly supports Linux development. So far Linux development support is only available for the Tablet OS AIR SDK but hopefully the WebWorks SDK will get Linux support. The Linux SDK supports the following Linux distributions: openSUSE 11.2, Ubuntu 9.1, or Fedora 12.

You can catch the instructions and download info at:

  3. Good to see RIM opening up the development potential. Would love to hear from some of the devs that frequent this site on what being able develop with Linux really means for them.


  5. From someone who doesn’t know anything about current Linux distributions, are these the distributions developers currently favour or are any critical ones missing?

  6. Fantastic, nice to see some linux love

  10. This sounds like RIM is moving more towards open-source OS, like the support for Android apps and now Linux…..
