Danny has developed a custom Corona plugin for Kiip, which offers rewards to users from the world’s largest brands, and he has developed a custom Corona plugin for Paypal that let’s customers scan credit cards to complete transactions within apps.

Since the “newEmitter()” display object was introduced in Corona Daily Build #2214, the Corona Labs staff and community members have illustrated various methods for the loading/usage of emitter definition files. However, some users are still unsure about how to create and edit emitters. In this tutorial, we’ll briefly examine emitter authoring tools, the Starling format, and emitter loaders.

Starting in daily build 2014.2277, we are changing the minimum supported version on iOS from 5.1 to 6. This means that if you do a device build with 2014.2277 (or later), your app will not run on a device whose version is below iOS 6.

This change is needed to move our iOS architecture forward, and finally pay off technical debt that has been accumulating for nearly 18 months, which is an eternity in the mobile space.
