Hi5 Developer Platform Launches OpenSocial 0.8

Hi5 Platform

For Facebook application developers also building for other social platforms, Hi5 announced today that is has officially launched OpenSocial 0.8 on the Hi5 developer platform. This marks the first major launch of OpenSocial 0.8, which has been in the making for many months.

The most interesting part of 0.8 is the addition of a RESTful API, which will make it easier to write OpenSocial apps (this is also more similar to the way Facebook apps are built). Developers can find the full release notes here.
