Titanium Mobile SDK 1.7 Release Candidate 1 is now available, providing new functionality, enhancements and bug fixes across iOS and Android. Download and install the release candidate SDK to test drive the following new capabilities:
- New cross-platform APIs for TCP/IP networking: Sockets and Streams, and supporting APIs for managing Buffers and Codecs.
- Fastdev for Android speeds prototyping and testing by enabling local changes to be instantly available to your application. Fastdev eliminates the time-consuming steps of packaging, building and deploying apps with each change.
- Universal Binaries: develop a single app for deployment on iPhone and iPad (requires use of Titanium Studio 1.0 Preview)
- Improved memory management and stability, especially on iOS.
Read the Release Notes for additional details on all new features and improvements available in the release candidate.
To install, you’ll want to download the appropriate distribution and then extract into your Titanium directory.
For example, on OSX, your Titanium directory will be under either /Library/Application Support/Titanium or~/Library/Appcelerator Support/Titanium.
On Linux ~/.titanium.
On Windows Vista/7 C:ProgramDataTitanium and on Windows XP C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataTitanium
Once you locate your Titanium directory, extract the zip file into this directory. The zip file will expand the contents and create/overlay some new directories for 1.7.0-RC1.
NOTE for OSX users who use Safari to download: Safari by default will auto uncompress your downloads, how handy. However, if you have a directory named mobilesdk, your extracted directory will be renamed.
Now, you’ll need to restart Titanium Developer to pick up the new release. Once restarted, remember to change your application SDK version and then click the ‘Save’ button.
You should now be able to test with the release candidate software.
