LiveCode 4.5.3 is now available for download. Representing our continuing commitment to creating the very best tools for iOS and all supported platforms and devices, this release brings you a slew of new iOS features, plus a substantial number of enhancements on mobile and desktop. Additionally, significant improvements have been made to multi-user installation and licensing.

If you have an active LiveCode 4.5 license, this is a free release for you, just download it from your account and activate using your account login details.

If you don't yet have a license or need to upgrade, you can purchase a new license here:

Hi David,
How do we get these new features? Just install LiveCode 4.5.3?
go to the RunRev website, click "Store" and log in (or create a new account if neccessary)
there you can download the new version.
How would do updates to iOS?
iOS support is now build into the IDE since version 4.5.2, is that what you mean?


Best

Klaus

Have the changed the way you deploy an app?

Before from within LiveCode you would

>>> Development >> Plugins >> MobilePlugin

You'd then enter your projects information/Profile/etc and Start or Deploy.

Then from Xcode drag the created app file into "Applications"

(simplified instruction but close)...

Are the above still how we 'deploy' a created application or has the procedure changed? If the process has changed where do I find instructions?

Thanks

Hi David,

starting with version 4.5.2, the Mobile plug in is not more necessary, all that is now build into the IDE
and handled in the standalone settings for your stack.
To deplay, just "Save as standalone" like for desktop apps!

Just take a look by yourself, if you have a valid license for 4.5.3, that's really cool :)

That is VERY Cool, and it worked!

hehehe a little heads up with that info would have been good, that way we would have been working on getting apps out there!

Thanks!

Hi Stef,

hmmmm, this is the announcement forum and definitively not a good place for such a question!
Why dont you create a new posting in the iOS forum?

Best to email support directly about this as I do not think Rev even bothers with the forums or mailing list.. :(

I think in their website, you log in to the shop, and then download. It always downloads the newest available version.
