PhoneGap now fully supports Windows Phone 7 (cross posting)

My colleague David blogged about support for Windows Phone 7 in PhoneGap released last month.
Please find more information and resource below or head off to David’s blog.

Back in September, Microsoft joined Nitobi to announce a Beta of PhoneGap support for Windows Phone Mango, and at the same time committed to continue working with the PhoneGap Open Source project community to help bring full support.

PhoneGap by Nitobi is an open source mobile framework that enables developers to build applications targeting multiple platforms, by using standard web technologies (HTML5, CSS and JavaScript). This release extends the cross-platform capabilities of PhoneGap, giving more choices to developers in need of a programming environment allowing them to easily deliver the same mobile experience to their users across the various existing and prominent mobile operating systems.  

In addition to being able to leverage their HTML5 and JavaScript skills to target Windows Phone, developers can now enjoy a selection of PhoneGap Plugins that support social networks and a solid integration into Visual Studio Express for Windows Phone. The plugins are:

  • Facebook JS SDK
  • Twitter/LinkedIn/Windows Live status retriever
  • Bing Maps Launcher
  • LiveTile Update

This release includes many new features, and you can find more details here
