There are some API changes in this release of DTFoundation that require a bump of the minor version.
This update for DTFoundation was originally 1.4.5. But some breakage occurred from fixing the name of a sub spec. So the solution was promote that to 1.5.0. This works because DTCoreText references 1.4.4 which means that it only sees the last version of DTFoundation which still has the typo.
The main theme – besides some minor fixes – was a big clean up effort which aims to reduce the amount of unnecessary classes in the Core and UIKit sub specs, as well as rename the DTHMLParser sub-spec to DTHTMLParser.
Gearing up for the upcoming 1.6 release of DTRichTextEditor I also figured that I could release a new maintenance release for DTFoundation. This version just tidies up a few project-related things, no real bugs.
Last update before WWDC. This is a maintenance release fixing some pressing issues, some of which were causing crashing.
The update was necessary because I had forgotten to add DTSidePanelController to any static library. Without that you could only compile it directly into your app, instead of being able to link in the lib and use it from there.
When I added it to the iOS Static Library and Static Framework targets I found out that I had already coded the delegate to use weak references. The general deployment target (minimum OS version) is still iOS 4.3 which did not support zeroing weak references.
So I also added zeroing weak references support in DTFoundation, via DTWeakSupport.h.
Today I have for you two special goodies. I used the entire day today to put the finishing touches on two new components that you find released in version 1.4 of DTFoundation.
On a recent project I was fed up with having to deal with a SQLite database “by hand”. So I wrote a wrapper for it that allows you to interact with the database in convenient Objective-C, as well as perform queries on a background queue.
The second new project is what the general public has come to call a “Hamburger Menu”. This is the kind of side panel menu that you can see in many popular apps.
