DAB 5.5 released

Dictionary App Builder 5.5

Release date: 14 June 2019

New Features and Improvements:

  • 64-bit libraries

    • From August 2019, Google requires all apps submitted to Google Play to have 64-bit versions of native libraries. These have now been added for Crosswalk and Grandroid.
  • Amazon Corretto 8 for JDK

    • Since Oracle has changed its licensing agreement for the use of their JDK, we recommend you use Amazon Corretto 8 instead. Amazon Corretto is a no-cost, multiplatform, production-ready distribution of the Open Java Development Kit (OpenJDK).
    • Installation instructions can be found in the documentation.
  • View Project Folder

    • Show the current app project folder by right-clicking on the app name in the left panel and selecting ‘View Project Folder’, or ‘File’ > ‘View Project Folder’ on the main menu.
  • Updated Gradle compiler to the latest version 5.4.1.

Bugs Fixed:

In the iOS app:

In the app builder:

  • In the list of images, the thumbnail is now updated correctly if replacing a file with the same name that is only different by case (e.g. replacing wraB1.png with wrab1.png).
  • If an image file contained an ampersand character, it was not saved correctly in the app definition file.
