Blog images

We’re pleased to announce the beta version of 3.2.1, a minor update to our 3.2.0 version of the Titanium SDK and Titanium Studio. Version 3.2.1 addresses some issues found in 3.2.0 as well as a number of other high-priority fixes. Today, we’re asking you to help test out the release and provide feedback before it becomes generally available.

This is a pre-production release, and as such may contain regressions or other issues. Beta software may contain blockers and other regressions. Please do not use it in production, and keep backups of all important projects and data.

If you find an issue, please report it in JIRA with a reproducible test case. We ask you provide feedback by Friday, 1/31.

How to Update

 

These are links to continuous integration builds. To install them, choose “Help Menu > Install Specific Titanium SDK…” from inside Titanium Studio.

Version 3.2.1 of the SDK requires an update to 3.2.1 of the CLI, but there are no backwards compatibility issues.
