At this point you are rightly wondering why HarmonyOS 3.0 developer beta is interesting, well it is above all the audience of developers who have to pay attention. Yes, because this new version of the operating system brings with it an improvement in the capabilities of the development language of JS / eTS apps; at the same time, further improvements are reported for ArkUI and ArkCompile.
The JS / eTS language allows you to develop complex app interfaces more efficiently and at the same time to obtain improvements in the startup times of the apps themselves.
Still (very) limited availability
We come to the sore points of Huawei's announcement: at present, the test program in question is limited only to models marketed on the Chinese market and, indeed, for now it is rather unlikely that it will expand internationally. The manufacturer has opened this testing phase in order to gather valuable feedback from users and testers in order to improve the software before moving on to the next test phase.
Announced during the Huawei Developer Conference 2021, the version 3.0 of HarmonyOS has already accumulated important delays, so much so as to arrive at a revision of the release table, which in any case has not been respected. The good news is that finally something starts to move, the bad one is that the wait still seems quite long.
