Please note the following:

Titanium SDK version 10.0, is the last major release of the Titanium SDK from Axway. All versions of Titanium SDK will reach the end of support on March 1, 2022, as announced on February 24, 2021. Please check our blog post on how to prepare for the end of support and apply the relevant changes if needed to your applications to continue to function after the end of support.

Some of the highlights of this release are:

  • Support for Material Design Widgets in Android
  • Support for Promise to enable asynchronous processing and callbacks
  • Updated Geolocation APIs to return geocode information from the device

Please check the release notes and the release announcement for more information on the new features, bug fixes, and community contributions.

We are focusing on transitioning the repository to the community and disconnecting the tools from the platform by eliminating the requirement to login to the platform. We will be limiting our support to the Titanium SDK to minor release updates with critical bug fixes only.
