Custom views are implemented in B4i code or as a library. With custom views you can design all the layout in the visual designer, with anchors and designer script.

New features and improvements:

  • iUI8 library: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/posts/397891/
    • WKWebView - Replaces WebView with better performance and more features.
    • VisualEffectView - A view that creates a blur effect.
    • NavControlExtra - Allows showing and hiding the bars with gestures.
    • TableView - Implemented as custom view (replaces iTableView2).
  • Faster and smoother startup in release mode.
  • Launch images for iPhone 4 are included by default.
  • Debugger improvements, especially relevant to large projects.
  • It is now possible to override main.m and Project-Info.plist by putting the files in the special folder.
  • #Target attribute: Allows targeting iPhone, iPad or both (default).
  • #MinVersion: Sets the minimum version. Default value is 7.0.
  • Notification.NotificationTag - A string that is tied to the notification and can be retrieved when the user clicks on the notification.
  • View.Parent - Returns the view's parent.
  • Bug fixes and other minor improvements.

This is a beta version. Make sure to backup your projects before loading them in the new version.

With B4i v2.5 BETA I suddenly started getting this error when compiling:

B4X:
Could not find file 'C:\Program Files\Anywhere Software\B4i\encryptable'.

I have reinstalled but that didn't fix it. The file (encryptable) doesnt exist.

The IDE doesn't use such file. In which step do you get it?

Note that the stable version is being released at this moment...

Sorry Erel, yes I just noticed that you are releasing the stable version.

For clarity, Im using: OSX with Vbox and WinXP. Everything worked until now.
The error happens when I compile. Somehow, the file "Thumbs.db:encryptable" is being added to my Files folder. I think this is the cause of the problem.

EDIT: It only seems to happen with one project, I`ll explore further.
