Announcing SproutCore 2.0 Developer Preview

“Web-style” applications, such as GitHub and New Twitter, provide rich functionality while still retaining the feel and layout of a traditional web page. SproutCore’s strong MVC architecture and bindings make it significantly easier to build these kinds of apps than other lightweight frameworks, but developers also have to opt-in to SproutCore’s view layer that includes many features these kinds of applications don’t need.

Today we’re announcing SproutCore 2.0: a rebuilt SproutCore, designed from the ground up to support every kind of web application. SproutCore 2.0 is highly modular and decoupled, allowing you just to opt in to the features you need.

We’ve been working hard on SproutCore 2.0 and today we are releasing our first milestone: SproutCore 2.0 Developer Preview, designed for developers who want to create web-style apps and don’t need the features of SproutCore 1.6′s view layer.

    JLG on iOS licensing certificate!

    Jean-Louis Gassée (former Apple VP) covers some history of Mac versus PC fight which some people want to apply to the iOS/Android competition of today. In the old days, we used to say that the SJ Mercury thought "beleaguered" was part of Apple's corporate name.

    > Apple is doing it wrong, Apple is living on borrowed time! Apple will Fail Again! This idea, this meme, isn’t new. For more than 30 years we’ve heard a number of versions of the “Apple is doomed” requiem.
