Intel XDK Release 3900

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

IMPORTANT: As of the March, 2017 release, the Intel XDK cloud-based build servers have been deprecated and will be retired at the end of June, 2017. When the Intel XDK cloud-based build systems are retired you will no longer be able to build a Cordova mobile app using the Intel XDK directly, with any version of the Intel XDK. At that time you will need to build your mobile app using either PhoneGap Build or Cordova CLI. See Build with PhoneGap* Build and Cordova* CLI for instructions on how to export and build your mobile app using these external tools.


I've been using XDK ever since I started Construct 2. Should I start migrating my projects/game app builds to different ones? Which one should you recommend?

Probably because they've provided their services for free and never charged.

Actually it's because Android Nougat does not require the webview engine anymore.
It kinda sucks for us because the projects that run on webview will face some issues on devices running latest version of Android Nougat.

We knew this was coming in advance and it was one of the factors in creating our own build service. We're also going to look in to using the C3 build service to build exports from C2 so you can use that as a replacement without having to import your project (which could be tricky if you don't have all third-party addons for C3). Also you can, as ever, still use PhoneGap Build, so nobody's left out in the cold. We're also going to look in to making it easier to use the Cordova CLI for local builds. And you still have a few months to use the Intel XDK.

Well at least they're giving us a heads up.

All those months of learning XDK all gone to waste. ❤❤❤❤❤

Thanks for the info, my game always worked better with Intel XDK than with webview.
In web view I always noticed some extra jumps in the framerate that do not happen with Crosswalk.
I guess at the moment web view is the only option.

Will we be able to use Crosswalk with the C3 build service? I think it is critical.
