Developer "Joy" Felt At MoSync SDK 3.2


Open source mobile development tools company MoSync has announced its MoSync SDK 3.2 with JavaScript debugging capabilities, extended libraries, and APIs supporting the Android 4.x platform, plus native UI improvements.

The support for the Android 4.x platform — both on devices and on simulators — comes with what the firm enthusiastically calls "heaps" of new tutorials.

… A Joyful Experience

"Working to release our latest updates has been a joyful experience. We are working closely with our developer community and are confident in the knowledge that we have great and compliant tools and features — giving all our developers and customers even more flexibility, stability, and freedom of choice," says Dr. Alex Jonsson, cofounder and CTO at MoSync.

The MoSync IDE now features a fully featured debugger for JavaScript code. A developer can now set breakpoints in the code, install and run the application package on a device, and then see the code as it executes in the MoSync IDE. The new debugger is hoped to cut HTML5/JavaScript development time, ensure the robustness of the code and get the app to market faster.

The entire Android runtime is updated, thereby improving conformity with the latest Android version available on the market. That means the existing code "should" now run without a problem on these platforms.

The MoSyncs ListView widget now supports alphabetical and segmented lists, sections, and new properties. There are also many other improvements to the native interface widgets, including fixing nested layouts on iOS and improving screen sliding. Many performance tweeks under the hood are also done, making MoSync's NativeUI functionality faster than ever.
