Intel® XDK Update for November 2015
By Joe W. (Intel) Posted on 11/09/15 1
This update mostly just has more bug-fixes and updates for the Cordova 5 support. But here are a few things to note. For a complete look at all that's in this update, check out the Release Notes.
September 2015 Intel® XDK Update – Hello Cordova* 5!
By Joe W. (Intel) Posted on 09/23/15 1
We took a couple of measured steps to get this release to full Cordova 5 support. Debugging on-device is critical to getting fully functioning apps with Cordova plugins - something that is not easy to do because the app has to be built with the plugins first. We figured that out, and in July, started an Intel® XDK Early Access program where we released a new way of managing plugins and debugging and profiling apps with plugins. This was still based on Cordova 3 and 4. That release gave developers the ability to fetch the Cordova plugin into their project directory as soon as the plugin was selected. Then, the Intel XDK could build a debuggable version of the app with the selected plugins to allow you to install it on an Android device and test/debug it – with the plugins! Obviously, this was a major change to the way the Intel XDK handles plugins, so we released it only as part of the Intel XDK Early Access program.
