Reporting Bugs

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.

You can leave general comments as a reply to this blog post.

Appcelerator Studio

Get the RC ( of Studio by changing the update type to Release Candidate Build and then check for updates.

Notice: Studio 4.6.0 is the first to include App Designer. If you have installed the App Designer beta from Labs you will need to remove this plugin before updating Studio to the beta.

To roll back delete the beta version and download and install the latest stable version.

Appcelerator CLI

There’s a RC for both the Appcelerator CLI Installer and Core Package.

Get both via the command line:

[sudo] npm install -g appcelerator@4.2.5-5
appc use 5.3.0-43

To roll back:

[sudo] npm install -g appcelerator
appc use latest

Titanium SDK

Get the RC of the Titanium SDK from the command line:

[appc] ti sdk install -d 5.3.0.v20160503133640

To roll back:

[appc] ti sdk select latest

Titanium & Alloy CLI

The Appcelerator CLI 5.3 RC includes Titanium CLI 5.0.6 (2016-01-14) and Alloy 1.7.33 (2016-01-15).

If you have been using the stand-alone Titanium CLI and haven’t updated them lately, then you can get these versions from the command line:
