We are pleased to announce the release candidate of Titanium SDK and Studio version 3.0.2. This patch release includes over 250 bug fixes and minor improvements since the release of 3.0.0. In addition, it includes:

  • Alloy 1.0.0, our MVC framework for developing Titanium applications
  • Official support for iOS 6.1

Read on below for instructions, and for full information, please see the release notes. In order to be able to get in any possible changes, we need feedback by end-of-day on Monday, February 11th.

How to Update

Updating to the release candidate versions involves three separate pieces: the SDK, Studio, and the node.js commnd-line packages.

SDK Updates

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

Studio

To update Studio, please visit https://preview.appcelerator.com and follow the instructions to update to the RC stream, or to download a new install.

NPM Packages

Note: You may need to use ‘sudo’ before these terminal commands on OSX and Linux

npm install -g titanium@3.0.24-cr
npm install -g alloy@1.0.0-cr

To revert back to stable versions:

npm remove -g titanium
npm install -g titanium
npm remove -g alloy
npm install -g alloy

If you should run into any issues, run a ‘npm cache clean’ and then retry the steps above.

  1. Inculding the module “com.kuchbee.quickpdf” (Quick PDF Reader) works with 3.0.0.GA, 3.0.1.v20130114133207 but not with the 3.0.2.vxxxx Versions. Error says “couldn’t find module……”

  2. I have found two anoying problems on iPad (simulator and device using SDK 6.1). when using TextField on popover, I have to touch multiple times on them to get the keyboard appearing (sometimes need to touch at least 7-8 times).
    This works fine on 3.0GA

    When I want tot test on device, the app is not installed on it if I don’t change the version number. (no problem on 3.0GA)

    • @ads. Thanks for the report. Were you able to find or create JIRA tickets for these items so we can try to reproduce?

    • @Jesper. There were some cases we weren’t rebuilding where we should have been. Do you have a specific case?

  3. There’s a regression with table views that have allowsSelection set to true and rows containing labels with highlightedColor set. I logged jira ticket: https://jira.appcelerator.org/browse/TC-1885

    This was previously working in Titanium SDK 2.1.4.GA but now it doesn’t work. Can you please fix? This is commonly used in iPad apps with master and detail views.

  4. The Android emulator is no longer launched when trying to build a project:

    [ERROR] Exception occured while building Android project:
    [ERROR] Traceback (most recent call last):
    [ERROR] File “/home/steve/.titanium/mobilesdk/linux/3.0.0.GA/android/builder.py”, line 2369, in
    [ERROR] builder.run_emulator(avd_id, avd_skin, avd_name, avd_abi, add_args)
    [ERROR] File “/home/steve/.titanium/mobilesdk/linux/3.0.0.GA/android/builder.py”, line 624, in run_emulator

    [ERROR] os.kill(p.pid, signal.SIGTERM)
    [ERROR] OSError: [Errno 3] No such process

  5. I upgraded to 3.0.1 then 3.0.2, and it says as much when I go to Help > About Titanium Studio and in version.txt:

    !define VERSION 3.0.2.201302191606
    !define BUILD 201302191606

    but whether I run 3.0.0, 3.0.1, or 3.0.2 it still says 3.0.0 in a couple places, like when I build an and run Android app:
