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.
This maintenance update improves Reachability handling. It implements the improvements in DTFoundation made to DTReachability.
I finally got around to updating the DTRichTextEditor time-limited Demo for Version 1.5. The new version broke a few items in the Demo because of the introduction of the text attachments class cluster.
The Demo is available on GitHub, the only other ingredient you need is a time-limited binary build of the DTRichTextEditor.framework.
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.
This weeks update to AutoIngest for Mac (a comunity-driven Mac status bar app for downloading sales reports) brings support for downloading from multiple vendor identifiers.
Your vendor identifier is an 8-digit number beginning with an 8. Usually you have only one, but if you – for example – move from an Individual to a Company Apple developer account, then your old ID is retired and you get a new one. There might be also other scenarios for people having multiple, now AutoIngest for Mac supports that.
This is the forth release of our handy little status bar app for downloading iTunes Connect reports to your hard disk.
I want to specifically highlight the new option to have your downloaded reports be automatically organized into folders for you, thanks to Felipe Cypriano.
Jan Weiß and Christian Pfandler collaborated on the new golden Apple Icon. The idea behind this – besides the reference to Apple, Inc. – is that apps are your golden Apples and this app is good for you because it lets you take a bite of this value.
Today we are releasing the 1.5 version of our rich text components. This marks the second unified release where several parts of our rich text eco system are maturing in lock-step.
For the most part these improvements and enhancements were funded from exceptional sales of DTRichTextEditor as well as several sponsors who stepped forward to allow me to finally get support for lists implemented.
From what I can tell the clients who licensed the editor are way more willing to contribute funds to something they have already paid for, than for enhancing the – otherwise free with attribution – DTCoreText.
