I'm very happy to release B4A v5.00.

SS-2015-06-04_17.20.20.png


SS-2015-06-04_17.14.40.png


With this version we are moving to the next generation of B4X IDE. Almost all of the IDE components, both back-end and front-end components, were rewritten.

The new IDE is significantly more powerful, smarter, more modern and more scalable.
There are too many improvements to list them all.
Note that this version is fully backwards compatible with previous versions.

Some of less obvious new features:

- Press on Ctrl + Click to jump to an identifier (sub, variables, etc.).
- Themes - Ctrl + T
- Sophisticated conditional compilation: #If, #Else If, #Else and support for OR and AND. Also supported in the manifest editor and designer scripts.
- Dockable layout. Including support for multiple open editors.
- Find all references - F7.
- Quick search - Ctrl + F.
- Goto sub / module - Ctrl + E.
- Smarter autocomplete.
- Hover over variables and expressions in debug mode.
- Structure matching.
- Automatic warnings and errors highlighting.
- Support for multiple visual designer windows
- Better support for selection and editing of multiple controls.
- Views tree supports drag and drop to allow changing the z-order.
- Integrated abstract designer with support for zooming.
- Memory leak related to layout animations was fixed.
- StartServiceAtExact keyword.


The following features are currently not implemented (they might be added in the future):
- B4A-Bridge over Bluetooth.
- Bookmarks (not to confuse with breakpoints).

Requirements

- Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0+ is required. If you are running Windows XP then you should install .Net Framework 4.0: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17851

- Developers running Vista or above should install .Net Framework 4.5.2: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42642

Developers who are eligible for a free upgrade should receive an email with installation instructions.
Other developers will receive a discount offer. Please allow up to 24 hours for the mails to arrive.
I want to thank the beta testers for their help with this major release.

:)

How can I upgrade to this version? My free upgrade period (two years) is over, thanks!
Write a mail to support@basic4ppc.com and ask for the price to upgrade your subscription for another two years
They will tell you the price / link to pay

if you bought 3.5 less than 2 years ago then you might still get free updates but you would've gotten an email about it.

otherwise you need to buy a license extention.

I have a two years license and I have received all updates until 4.30. The license is still active (I think) and I will renew it for sure.

My spam foder is empty.

Ok got it. With b4a 5.2 you can only open projects over explorer. not about the "recent" or "sticked" list

Update: You have to delete all links to old b4a version. I sticked b4a to my task bar and with that "old" sticky you cannot run b4a anymore. You have to create a new one
