Pebble SDK 2.0 is currently in BETA and intended for developers only.
SDK 2.0 will be released later this year as an over-the-air update to all Pebble users.
Applications written for Pebble 1.x are not compatible with SDK 2.0
ANCS Notifications (aka BLE notifications) are not supported for iOS users in this version
2013 11 07: Added a firmware for watch with serial number starting with a 'Q' (aka hardware 1.5)
What has changed since BETA0
User Bug Fixes and Feature Enhancements
Fixed crashing bugs on the iOS app. Users should experience improved stability.
New iOS users no longer need to manage access to their address book in order to see Caller ID on their Pebble.
The iOS app does not overflow the banner bar (at the top of the screen) on iOS7
The Pebble now can show >80 unread notifications, up from 8 previously.
Backlight is triggered on a tap from any of the 6 axes of the watch
Android app stability has been improved
On Android, switching orientation while updating firmware does not stop the firmware update
The music app now stays open rather than switching back to the menu after 1 minute
Known User Issues
The status indication button in the main screen sometimes repeatedly throbs green then red, repeatedly.
(iOS7 users, iPhone4S and higher) If you select "Enable Notifications" and select the Cancel button in the system alert that comes up, it can take up to 30 seconds for the iOS app to allow selection of "Enable Notifications" again. As a workaround, if you launched this screen from the Status screen, you can hit the up arrow, then the red "Not receiving notifications" button, and retry enabling notifications again.
In certain conditions if you enable and disable Airplane mode on your Pebble, you may need to restart the Pebble iOS app completely in order to re-enable notifications again
On Android, use of HTML5 local storage does not guarantee data will be saved across sessions.
Duplicate APP_LOG messages can be received while using the pebble tool; these are intermittent and developers should use timestamps to identify duplicates
If there is not enough app heap remaining, some essential functions that allocate on that heap will fail, such as system fonts or persistent storage
The iOS app can sometimes crash when opening a PBW file if it is not already running
