Symbian Web Tools Beta Available

I’m happy to say that the beta edition of the Symbian Web Tools is now available for download

Our goal with this product is to help web developers create applications for the Web Runtime(WRT). The main release criteria was to provide an IDE that had at least feature parity with the alternatives. We believed we met that, as well as providing some additional improvements.

The key difference is this IDE is developed with purely open source components from Eclipse JSDT, Chromium, and Nokia. We plan to collaborate with Eclipse, Symbian, and other open source communities to rapidly innovate and improve these tools to enable developers to create more and more compelling mobile web apps.
