    A lot of work has been done recently with the new XUI2D games framework:


    This update makes it simpler to build cross platform applications and share files between the projects.

    • Debugger performance optimizations and bug fixes.
    • #CustomBuildAction:
      • Support in all modules.
      • Support for environment variables.
      • New "folders ready" cross platform compilation step. Useful for updating files.
    • The list of subs above the code editor was rewritten. It behaves better (doesn't miss key inputs and always jumps to the clicked sub).
    • file:// links can be ctrl + clicked.
    • B4A Sdk Manager v3.29 included.
    • BitmapCreator v4.18
    • XUI2D v0.99
    • OkHttpUtils2 v2.70
    • The WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission removed from the debugger.
    • Code editor jumps to the error line when there are Java compilation errors.
    • Bug fixes.
    Developers eligible for free upgrades will receive an email with the installation instructions. Other developers will receive an email with a renewal offer.

    Wow! Thanks! But if I don't write games, is it convenient to update from 8.30 anyways?

    Yes it is, simply for all the other updates, new features and bug fixes...

    I just installed B4A 8.5. And now I'm compiling my app in debug thru to the B4A Bridge to the tablet, and I'm getting the following errors on the tablet. The tablet doesn't launch the app at all.
    Error writing file
    Error saving APK

    Anyone have an idea what this may be?

    I don't think that it is related to the new version. Please start a new thread and provide all information you can.

    With this new version is possible to shared assets? I mean, pictures, icons, etc? to shared with B4i for example?

    Hi Erel,

    I made the upgrade, but since v8.50 there is a problem with ...
    FileDialog_Import.TextColor = Colors.White
    ... it doesn't compile anymore.

    Another problem is this one:
    ... when I want to use FileDialog (by agraham).

    Should I reinstall v8.30 (there was no problem with that)?

    I found another problem too, but it can fixed downloading the component:

    I the version 8.0 and 8.3 you can use slidingmenu.jar the component to put Side Menu in the apps

    Now, with version 8.5.0 is mandatory to use slidingmenu.aar, but is just to get the new version and put in library folder

    This morning I started up the tablet and deployed the same app in Debug mode and everything is working as expected.
    Still unusual errors to have installing an app to Android.

    Hi. I bought a basic B4A (2 months of upgrades) on July 31st of this year. So I should be eligable for this new 8.50 version.
    How do I upgrade? Thanks!

    In this case, you should have received an e-mail with an upgrade link from the support. ;)

    The only email I received did have a link to a page where I could upgrade but not for free.
    It says $41 (save $18). According to when I bought the last version on July 31, I would have 2 months of free upgrades.
