Right now, many of you are probably trying to figure out whether you want to upgrade to Pro right now, and lock in our promotion before it ends and prices go up this Wed (May 1).
So this week, I wanted to sit down and talk to you about the difference between Starter and Pro features.
In addition, I want to talk about cool graphics features coming to Pro developers that will make mobile app development breathtakingly awesome.
We have now seeded access to plugins to our beta testers, which means plugins are just around the corner for daily builds! Read on for more info on status and how plugins will work.
We’re happy to announce support for Google Play expansion files that will vastly simplify mobile app development. Why would you want to use expansion files? Read the full post to learn more!
Time for another weekly update!
I’ve cherry-picked several highlights on Corona. Two of them are highly-sought after features for your cross-platform development pleasure.
Last week, we launched a new public release and also launched Corona SDK Starter, so I want to give you a quick update on all the great things we are adding to make Corona awesome for cross-platform app development. I also have some announcements on what we are doing in open source.
Today, we have some very exciting news. A new public release, a new version of Corona and a few other changes and coming features.
We are making mobile app development more accessible than ever!
As those of you who build for Android have already noticed we’ve made changes to the way we report errors. It was necessary to do this on Android first because improved runtime error handling was a prerequisite to getting the custom Android permissions feature implemented.
Starting with build 2013.1043, on iOS, Android, Mac and Windows, we are rolling out new functionality within our network api. Network functions like download, request have been enhanced with new functionality.
The current Corona Daily Build is now 1041. And we’ve been doing a lot to make Corona the best cross-platform engine out there. Lots of items on iOS and Android that we’ve knocked out.
It’s here! We rewrote Corona’s widget library from the ground up and it’s now available in Daily Build 1034.
(Side note: There was a little snafu with the 1034’s Daily Build API docs. It’s now fixed!)
The most important thing we did was decide to start from scratch in order to build a stable, rock-solid foundation. It’s much easier to extend, has better error handling, and is more maintainable.
