And that’s just for starters. We have had one hell of a crazy development cycle, and we have achieved quite a few internal milestones and feature implementations that will make our Corona SDK that much more enjoyable to use (especially for Android development!).
As you all know from my previous blogpost, we got derailed quite a bit on meeting our internal schedule recently. After further review of where we were in the dev cycle, we decided to delay the bits for a few weeks. Well, today, am happy to announce that the launch date for the next Corona SDK is scheduled for August 2.
There is a slew of new features going into Corona, including the increase in Android build speeds, OpenFeint for Android, the new Corona UI (available now for everyone, not just subscribers to our Daily Builds), and some other new features that I will leave out of this brief update — all of which, nonetheless, will have a big impact in your app development endeavors!
At the moment, we are having a soft-launch to our partners who, in a few short days, will be receiving the bits to test out and provide us with feedback. Don’t worry, they are under NDA and can’t disclose the hot new features — but their feedback will be invaluable to help us get rid of any bugs or flow issues so that the rest of our users don’t have any issues or hassle when the product officially launches.
Having said this and having been out of the office for a full week, I need to get back to work, catch up on my emails, and sync up with my team to make sure we are indeed on track to the August 2 “launch” date (hinting quotes!).
