Thanks to a timeline released by Palm, we now have a good idea when to expect the next build of webOS. The downtrodden company has passed along word to developers to expect an email alert early this month with the news that an SDK candidate has been released. Developers will have a quick week to find what Palm is calling "Show-stopper" bugs in webOS. Once the week is through, the software will be released to carriers and the developers will be given a chance to find problems relating to their particular apps over the next 2-3 weeks, at which time the new webOS build will be available to consumers. Put it all together and it comes out to a late May, early June launch. While it is important to test PDK apps against the new release, those who have developed non-PDK apps should also check to make sure that there are no issues with the new build of webOS, which is expected to bring only minor changes to the software.
