A couple of days back, PlayN developers posted a handy little tablet showing what the current development status is for each supported platform. The iOS support seems to be coming along nicely, but as you can see, there is still some work to be done.
- N/A – not applicable to this platform (i.e. mouse on mobile).
- Stub – non-functional placeholder implementation.
- Part – partially implemented with some missing pieces.
- Comp – fully implemented.
Very cool news. One of the items on the roadmap is better documentation, something I really look forward to. Supporting iOS is definitely a huge deal, especially for Java developers that don’t want to go within a thousand feet of Objective C but want to be able to target the massive iPhone/iPod/iPad market, while still supporting desktop, Android and web targets.
