Volantis Systems announced its Framework 6.0 expanded mobile content delivery platform which enables Web developers to use HTML5 and CSS3 without relying on Java programming.

Framework 6.0 features a new app creator, an enriched HTML5 and CSS3 toolkit and claims to provide better device portability and improved page rendering. The new app creator allows developers to deploy applications that can run across native and web clients and be packaged up for both Apple and Android app stores.

The feature toolkit enables HTML5 developers to produce sites and applications without having to build individual versions for different browsers and handsets.

Volantis CEO Mark Watson explained, "HTML5 offers great potential for developers to produce web-based applications which offer a rich media experience. However, as browser vendors implement different features for HTML5, end-users might not be able to take full advantage of their device's capabilities. For developers, this usually means designing applications that have to be tweaked to overcome the bugs unique to each manufacturer's version of HTML5 and CSS3 employed. With Framework 6.0, developers can produce browser-based and native applications with highly customisable, out-of-the-box user interface components, which fulfil the potential of the latest handsets as well as rendering across legacy devices."

The platform will be available immediately within commercial releases.
