Intel XDK Release 2248, July 17, 2015

We have released version 2248 of the Intel XDK.

This release is a "hotfix" to the previously released 2170 version. It contains one significant bug fix:

  • The Intel XDK would pause for several minutes at startup with slow or misconfigured network connections.
  • There will not be a similar hotfix release for the Intel XDK IoT Edition or the Intel XDK Early Access release.

For detailed information please read the release notes.

Crosswalk 14 Embedded Now Available

You can now build "embedded" Crosswalk 14 apps with the Intel_XDK for Chrome 43 webviews on Android 4.x and higher devices. See Why Use Crosswalk? for why Crosswalk matters on Android devices.

You select Crosswalk 14 by selecting the pulldown in the Build Settings section of the Projects tab. This version is only selectable by using version 2170 or greater of the Intel XDK.

You will see a new login screen when providing your userid and password to the Intel XDK, and to App Preview. This is the login system you are seeing. Other than the change to a new login screen, there will be no difference for the majority of Intel XDK users.

  • you own multiple accounts that have projects with the same name
  • you have multiple projects (with different names) that were copied from the same original project
  • other security and authentication upgrade effects

The simplest solution to this problem is to:
