I'm happy to release B4A v5.50.

Developers who are eligible for a free upgrade will receive an email with a download link and a new license file. Make sure to choose the new license file when asked to locate the license.

Advanced optimizations were made to the debugger which make the debugger significantly faster.
Complete features list:
  • Debugger improvements.
  • Better handling of uncaught exceptions (Application_Error). See this tutorial:
    Uncaught Exceptions
    This feature allows developers to provide alternative ways to handle crashes. For example, to send the crash logs by mail.
  • Material themes were added to the WYSIWYG designer.

  • Panel.Elevation / SetElevationAnimated methods (and designer property) - These methods allow setting the panels elevation. This is a new feature added in Android 5. The methods will do nothing on prior versions. See the following video:


  • #DebuggerDisableOptimizations attribute: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/t...-is-available-for-download.58283/#post-366943
  • $AdditionalLibs$ and $AndroidSDK$ shortcuts. These shortcuts can be used in the #AdditionalRes path. They will replaced with the full path to the additional libraries folder or Android SDK folder.
  • Buttons text is no longer upper cased when the material theme is used.
  • Bug fixes and other minor improvements.
Note that the legacy debugger option has moved to Tools - IDE Options.

If you encounter a problem during registration then try to copy the license file to the installation folder. If is still doesn't work then contact support@basic4ppc.com and we will send you a new license file that will fix this issue.

I am still missing the new material features from the designer? Soon as I installed 5.5 and launched the bridge and designer, it re-installed a newer Designer on the tablet. However, it doesnt have the new material stuff.

B4 Bridge still timing out alot with b4a 5.5 which worked beautifully with 5.2. I will try it on another wireless lan to see if it behaves better and give feedback by end of day.

Cheers

It says you already had an app in your device with that package name (ServB4A.apk) and with a higher #VersionCode ;), probably you assigned to your test project the same name as another project

Try changing the package name of this test project, or uninstall the existing app, or change the #VersionCode. All of them should work

Before, simply replacing one for another. now it seems not.
if they have the same versionnumber it will work. but the last you tried have had an LOWER versionnumber than the alreaady installed one. Versionnumbers must be increased from version to version. It should not decreased.

Rarely in this world of profound consumerism, excessive indulgence and unnecessary trinkets do you receive an opportunity to invest your money in something truely beneficial...B4A is a wonderful opportunity to do just that...

After several years of inactivity - I purchased the first version - I have now upgraded to 5.5.

In addition, the support and assitance offered by the B4A community is unparallelled - long may it continue!
