New this build: further improvements to PhoneGap support, and a number of bug fixes and tweaks.

We're due a stable update so please test carefully and report any issues you find! We're also particularly interested in feedback on the new PhoneGap features, so please give them a spin if you can and let us know how it goes.

Changelog

Add

Audio: new 'Play in background' property. Setting to 'Yes' allows audio to keep playing after switching tab/app for things like music player apps.

Add

PhoneGap export: can now choose minimum iOS and Android versions required by the app. Currently it defaults to iOS 8+ minimum since performance is significantly better, and when Android L is out it will likely become the default minimum for PhoneGap as well. However you can opt in to supporting older versions if you wish, and for Android we still recommend using Crosswalk for better support on Android 4.0-4.4.

Change

The WebGL renderer name is now logged to the browser console on preview if it's available, e.g. "ANGLE (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)". This could be useful to identify the GPU in use in dual-GPU systems, and also sometimes indicates the underlying rendering API in use (e.g. Direct3D 11 in the given example).

Change

The Crosswalk export should now also be buildable on other XDK targets like iOS with similar support to PhoneGap (since the XDK supports Cordova). This allows the XDK to be used as an alternative to PhoneGap Build.

Change

PhoneGap export now references cordova.js instead of phonegap.js for better compatibility with XDK and PhoneGap CLI

Change

Dictionary: display text for 'compare current value' was incorrect

Change

Game Center plugin: removed 'period' parameter from 'Show leaderboard' action, since it is no longer supported by iOS

Change

Browser object: in PhoneGap, 'Open URL' and 'Open URL in new window' now both launch the system browser.

Change

Moved event/group expanded/collapsed state to the event sheet uistate file. This should prevent needing to merge changed "collapsed" attributes in event sheet XML when using source control.

Change

Moved project bar item expanded/collapsed states to the project uistate file. This should prevent needing to merge changed "expanded" attributes in the main .caproj XML when using source control.

Bug Fix

Possible check failure duplicating layouts with global layers

Bug Fix

More cases of being able to modify layers overridden by global layers where it shouldn't have been allowed

Bug Fix

Display would sometimes fail to restore after a WebGL context lost event. The runtime should now correctly recover.

Bug Fix

'Soft light' WebGL shader did not work in IE11

Bug Fix

Sprite: loading image from a URL could in some cases degrade the image quality

Bug Fix

PhoneGap export: Enabling 'Hide status bar' didn't work correctly on iOS 8

SDK

"cordova-plugins" in plugin settings can now also optionally specify a plugin version after an @, e.g. "[email protected]"
