For the most part this is a bug fix release on DTCoreText, but there are also two new little features in the demo app. This update was made possible by a generous sponsor.
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.
Actually I wanted to release this as version 1.5.4, but frankly I got lazy trying to separate new features from bug fixes. So let’s call this 1.6.0 instead.
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.
