This build is to make some updates to the new Intel XDK project format (new to this beta cycle, and currently opt-in from the Cordova export options dialog). Hopefully it should fix several issues users were running in to when using the new format with the latest release of the Intel XDK. In particular it should better support third-party Cordova plugins referencing GitHub repositories, and fix iOS and Windows builds.

We now also enable Crosswalk automatically for Intel XDK builds the same way we do for PhoneGap Build: if you specify a minimum Android version below 5.0, Crosswalk is enabled, otherwise for Android 5.0+ it is disabled (since Android 5.0+ has a good system webview which can generally run HTML5 games fine). When Android 5.0+ has enough market share for your purposes you can therefore opt-out of the Crosswalk APK size overhead (~17mb) simply by setting the minimum Android version to 5.0 when exporting. Eventually when Android 5.0 has enough market share, we will make this the default setting so you get small APKs by default (and then you can opt-in to Crosswalk and its APK size overhead if you still want Android 4.x support).



New Intel XDK project format: now automatically specifies Crosswalk if minimum Android version is <5.0, otherwise leaves it out for Android 5.0+


New Intel XDK project format: correctly specifies Cordova plugins from URLs

Bug Fix

New Intel XDK project format: specify runtime for iOS and Windows builds (should fix these platforms being unable to build)

Bug Fix

Changing layout/layer effect parameters did not always enable the save button

Does this mean that AdMob works with XDK again? Was that in the updated plugins reference?

OK now would be a good time for someone to create an updated, complete tutorial for exporting to various mobile platforms using the Intel XDK (Windows Phone 10, Android, iOS). Because I never got to make Intel XDK work, and gave up on it..
