Rhodes 2.1 native UI enhancements and RhoSync 2.0 support for Objective C
This was an exciting week of releases all across the product line at Rhomobile. As blogged about last week, RhoHub 2.0 was launched. This is a complete rearchitecture of the original RhoHub product. It allows for use of local IDEs and editors while still getting the benefits of hosted build, collaboration and hosted RhoSync 2.0. It also runs on top of the RhoHub infrastructure for better manageability. RhoSync 2.0 on RhoHub 2.0 is truly suitable for production use in mission critical enterprise apps.
We also just released Rhodes 2.1. Rhodes 2.1 contains some great enhancements for animated transitions and other optimized native UI appearance. The essential change is that we’ve included our own enhancements to JQTouch (which normally doesn’t work too well on Android) within Rhodes (and Rhodes-generated scaffold apps).
Rhodes 2.1 also contains several enhancements for our enterprise and industrial app customers. These include barcode reading and signature capture (very useful for field service and inventory applications). It also contains several enhancements for iPhone 4.0 including better support for running in a multitasked environment.
