Starting Feb 1, 2015, Apple is requiring all new app submissions to be 32/64-bit-universal. So between now and Jan 31, 2015, you can continue to submit your apps just as you do today, but once Feb 1 hits you’ll need to make sure certain changes are in place.
It appears Apple has been making changes a little too quickly lately. Their sudden changes to the app submission filters gave heartburn to many iOS developers, including yours truly. And then just today, they pulled iOS 8.0.1, their minor update to iOS 8, on the same day they released it.
Of course, Apple changed a number of things with iOS 8 that have affected iOS app development. We’ve been tracking these and wanted to give you a summary of the known issues in Corona and their status.
Facebook is now a plugin on Android starting in build 2014.2430.
One of the things app developers love about Corona is the fast iteration.
Today, we’re taking that one step further with CoronaViewer – edit your project from your desktop and preview them right away on your device!
Today, we have a new update to our visual editor Composer GUI, available in daily build 2014.2332.
This update makes significant improvements over the previous beta. We’ve focused on polishing the existing feature set as well as improve your workflow.
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.
Today, we are seeding out a new product that we call the “Composer GUI”, a visual editor that allows you to rapidly create scenes, user interfaces, and game levels!
Read on to learn more.
Starting in daily build 2014.2264, we are changing the minimum supported version on Android from 2.2 to 2.3.3. This means that if you do a device build with 2014.2264 (or later), your app will not run on a device whose version is below Android 2.3.3.
You can now use the camera feed as a texture, which opens up a world of possibilities and new effects.
