Product Release

GA Release of CLI 5.3, Titanium 5.3 and Studio 4.6

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of the Appcelerator CLI 5.3.0, Titanium SDK 5.3.0 and Appcelerator Studio 4.6.0.

We’d like to thank the Appcelerator Community members who contributed to this release as well as those who have tested the beta and RC versions.

Windows 10, App Designer & App Preview

This Titanium SDK release is almost entirely focussed on delivering Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile support. You can now build Titanium apps for iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10.

This Studio release comes with App Designer to create and edit Alloy views using drag and drop . It also integrates with App Preview to distribute beta versions of your apps to testers and stakeholders. App Designer and App Preview are available to Pro and Enterprise subscribers.

Release Notes & Fixed Issues

These releases include 103 bug fixes and 50 improvements and new features. For a more detailed overview, known issues and closed tickets see the following links:

Update from Appcelerator Studio

If you changed the update type to Release Candidate Build to get the RC, then you can switch back to Stable Release now and check for updates.

Note: You need to use LiveView once in Studio before you can use it from the CLI again after the update (TISTUD-7746).

Update from Command Line

Studio will update the CLI and SDK for you. To update them from the command line:

[sudo] npm install -g appcelerator
appc setup

Titanium & Alloy CLI

The Appcelerator CLI contains Titanium CLI 5.0.8 (2016-04-20) and Alloy CLI 1.8.7 (2016-04-20). If you are using the stand-alone CLIs and haven’t updated them lately, you can do so from the command line:

[sudo] npm install -g titanium alloy

Note: This will get you Alloy 1.9.0 which includes a complete rewrite of data-binding. This version will be included in a later version of Appcelerator CLI.

If you run into any issues that seem related to the updates, please report them on JIRA. First check if it’s a known issue you can watch. If you can’t find an existing ticket, then create one in the Appcelerator Community (AC) project and include as much relevant information as you can.
