Version 0.4.5 of mobl has been released. Mobl is a language for rapid development of mobile web applications using HTML5 technologies. Programs written in the mobl language are compiled to a combination of HTML, Javascript and CSS and can run on any webkit browser, specifically those on iOS and Android devices.

Some new features in this version since 0.4.4:

  • Bug fixes
  • Fixes in event buffering
  • Hardware accelerated screen transitions (by Willem Bult)
  • Some new HTML5 controls (for iOS5 and Android 2.3+), including telField and rangeField.
  • Switched to YUI Compressor for release builds. Should be faster and more reliable.
  • This release works fine with Eclipse 3.7 (as did previous releases)
