Widget 2.0 is here! Bam!

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.

Say goodbye to default Android Permissions

In the past month, we’ve been focusing Corona Daily Builds on lots of small details, and in particular, what I call invisible issues. These are the kinds of things that don’t make sense to address in the short-term, but are vital to the long-term health of the platform.

One such invisible issue has been Android permissions, or more precisely, the default permissions.
