New iPhone SDK released
Apple has released its latest iPhone software developers' kit, build 9M2621. The development tools have been updated for the new iPhone 2.2 firmware, as well as the matching iPod touch 2.2 software. The download is larger than the last release, jumping to 1.56GB.
Although Apple has not publicly stated the details of added capabilities for developers, the v2.2 device updates offer overall system stability and performance improvements. Google Maps and Mail functions have also been enhanced, in the former case with items like Street View that may need special support.
Registered iPhone developers can acquire the 9M2621 SDK as a free download from the iPhone Dev Center. The kit requires Mac OS X 10.5.5.
