A little over a month after releasing its BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 2.1 for Smartphones, Research In Motion (NASDAQ:RIMM) is introducing version 2.1.1, known internally as the Echo Release.
BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 2.1 for Smartphones, issued in early July, introduced a Banner Indicator API enabling developers to place their own icon and number in the banner area of the device homescreen, supporting notifications that alert users to application changes while it's running in the background. Tweaks also include an enhanced Push API, NTLM and BASIC Authentication support, a Camera API supporting both photos and videos, and improved rendering speeds for apps that don't use loading/transition screens.
