Red Five Labs announce Net60 v2.0

At the Symbian Smartphone Show in London, Red Five Labs have announced the latest iteration of their .NET compact framework, the Net60 version 2.0 for S60 devices.

The Net60 framework, along with Microsoft’s Visual Studio provide you with a powerful platform to develop apps for the S60 platform very easily. The app will be demonstrated at the Show today.

Dusan Babich, CEO of Red Five Labs, said:

We have been building the .NET compact framework for Symbian devices for many years. Symbian developers have never before had such an easy to use, easy to deploy, development experience.

The version 2.0 of Net60  brings:

  • .NET Compact Framework 2.0 compatibility (including generics)
  • Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008 support
  • SQLite support with an ADO.NET provider
  • A managed namespace providing access to native Symbian APIs (telephony, camera, OpenGL, GPS etc.)

With Net60, developers can run managed WinMo apps on S60 without any changes. The same code and programming environment can be made use of to develop apps for the S60 platform.
