CoronaSDK 2016.2994

Tue, 2016-11-29 03:45

Release notes for build 2016.2993 through 2016.2994

  • Windows: Fixed SDK's "Corona.Debugger.exe" command line tool to not error out on startup. (Bug introduced in build #2883.)
  • Windows: Modified Corona logging window to show a 16x16 app icon instead of downscaling a 32x32 icon.
  • Core: Modified Lua *.addEventListener() to not immediately invoke the given event listener if added while the event is being dispatched. (You no longer have to delay adding an event listener via a timer.)
  • Windows: Maintenance
  • Windows: Fixed center-aligned and right-aligned text to not render newline '\n' characters as spaces. (This would sometimes clip the left-most character on the wrapped line, which is now fixed.)
  • Windows: Fixed bug where single line text object's would sometimes not render the last character when using a fractional content scale. (Was doing line wrapping when it shouldn't have.)
  • Windows: Modified multiline text to not apply the font's "line height" below the last line. (Now matches Android's behavior. Only applied between lines.)
  • Windows: Modified text objects to be screen pixel aligned by the renderer. (Prevents text from appearing blurry on low DPI monitors when a text object lands between screen pixels, which avoids having the GPU interpolate the text image's pixels between screen pixels.)
  • Windows: Improved text quality of Corona Simulator's Welcome window.
  • Merged
  • Android: Maintenance
  • Android: Fixed a possible bad state when calling object:startRecording() on a device that does not have a microphone.
  • Android: Fixed possible NPEs when: the permission rationale dialog is cancelled out of, the setting redirect dialog is cancelled out of, or results of a runtime permission request are being forwarded to Lua.
  • Android: Fixed an issue where native.canShowPopup() and system.canOpenURL() could provide false-positive results on Android TV devices.
