Beta Version of Titanium SDK 64-bit Support Now Available

Magnificent colorful vertical shot of a slot canyon in Lower Antelope Canyon in Arizona USA.

After additional testing, we’ve now moved the build status to beta, with just one or two known issues remaining. You will note the bump in versions to 3.5.0, as this build requires iOS modules to be recompiled (see below). What was previously slated for our original 3.5.0 has been moved to a new version, 3.6.0.

A reminder that starting February 1st 2015, Apple will require that all App Store submissions be compiled using the iOS 8 SDK, and support 64-bit architectures.

To Test

To test, please download the latest SDK build from the 3.5.0 stream (https://builds.appcelerator.com/#3.5.0). You do not need to download any CLI or Studio updates. You then just need to build your application using this latest version.

This build contains the following changes:

  • New, 64-bit build of JavaScript core, now 80% smaller, and based on a much newer codebase.
  • Updated 64-bit supporting libraries
  • 64-bit clean Titanium iOS SDK
  • Updated 64-bit modules
  • 64-bit module and project templates

The only remaining item is correcting an issue in our debugger support. Please watch TIMOB-17924 for more information.

Important Notes

In the 3.5.0 release notes, we detail several important changes. In particular, ALL iOS modules will need to be 64-bit compatible..

If you run into any issues, please file JIRA tickets and let us know ASAP. We expect to release a GA version within the coming weeks.
