| the SDL library in this latest version of
| webOS. SDL is an acronym for Simple
| DirectMedia Layer, an open source library that
| provides a programming interface to a
| platformâs underlying audio, graphics and
| input devices. Translated into English, this
| means that Palm webOS developers will have
| direct access to the underlying graphics
| hardware of a device making hardware
| accelerated graphics a reality.
