Devs: Ripple Emulator v0.9.1 Beta Released – Goes Standalone


Awhile back RIM acquired Ripple to up their BlackBerry WebWorks testing and development tools. They have been pretty quiet releasing updates here and there and their latest is Ripple Emulator v0.9.1 beta for Windows and Mac. This new version is no longer a Chrome Plugin and is rather a standalone app. It also adds the ability to run as a local webserver for testing.

The full list of updates in this beta include:

  • Support for JavaScript® breakpoints in Web Inspector
  • Added SSL support for Microsoft Windows
  • WebWorks File I/O API support (FINALLY!!!)
  • HTML5 Audio/Video support on Microsoft Windows
  • Local solution for emulating your app without configuring your own local web server
  • Ability to work offline after an initial connection to the Internet

I really hope RIM starts picking up the pace with WebWorks development and its tools. Its cool to see solutions like WebGL make it into the product but I am hoping these iterations start rolling out faster and they stabilize the browser on the PlayBook. The PlayBook OS 2.0 browser in the latest beta is much faster but it still crashes often.
