Tizen 2.4 Rev6 Release Notes

Release Date: May 19, 2016

IDE and Tools

Changed Features

  • Installer and Update Manager

    • The notification for the Update Manager, which appears at the bottom right corner of the screen, has been changed to inform you more clearly of the actions (install, update, cancel, or remove).
  • CLI/SDB
    • When you copy a file or directory by using the SDB's push command, a "WARNING: Your data is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could be read by others." security warning message appears to inform you what risk exists in the push command.
    • If you use the SDB’s forward command, the remote port ”0” is disabled.

 

Fixed Bugs

  • Installer and Update Manager

    • Since the SDK does not support multi-byte characters, some bugs appeared when you configured an installation directory or folder location in the Installer. This issue has been fixed, and now a function checks the multi-byte characters on the directory and folder path for the Installer.
    • The bug, where the Update Manager sometimes removed meta packages not selected for  removal, has been fixed.
  • Native UI Builder
    • The bug that caused abnormal layout rendering on Mac OS® has been fixed.
    • The bug, where you could not control the Toolbar UI component, has been fixed.
    • The bug, where you could not apply the timepicker_layout style of the Datetime UI component, has been fixed.
    • The bug, where you could not set the min and max property of the Spinner UI component, has been fixed.
    • The bug, where you could not use the Genlist UI component, has been fixed.
    • In the layout.xml editor, the bugs of the bidirectional editing at the source and user interface level have been fixed.
  • Enventor
    • Proper calculation of the indent depth has been fixed after adding a multi-line comment.
    • Title icon is supported on Windows®.
    • Compile issue for the empty template code has been fixed. Previously, empty template code was unavailable to build.
    • When adding image template code, the definition part for the defined images has been added to the group template code.
    • Unicode symbols have been fixed to work correctly in redo/undo.
    • Incorrect line increasing has been fixed in the editor when inserting the group template code.
  • T-Trace
    • The issue where T-trace sometimes causes UI hangs-up on Window10 has been fixed. This issue is caused by the background thread which checks the SDB connection periodically, and the logic has been changed to check the SDB connection by on-demand, not periodically.

 

Known Issues

  • Web IDE

    • The Preview tab in the Web Page Editor sometimes does not appear properly. Use an alternative feature, named Web SDK HTML Editor, which has enhanced features compared to the Web Page Editor. Instead of the Preview tab in the Web Page Editor, use the preview (Ctrl+4) feature of the Web SDK HTML Editor.
  • Installer and Update Manager
    • When you run the dynamic analyzer on Mac OS® X, the SDK Update Notification does not appear though there are available SDK updates.
    • If the SDK Update Notification appears when you start the Tizen IDE or Emulator on Mac OS® X, a terminal (shell.exec) icon can appear on the dock for a few seconds.
  • Native IDE
    • When you import some projects generated from Tizen 2.3 Rev2, the importing can take some time.
    • The Restore Defaults feature in the native project’s properties > C/C++ Build does not work properly.
  • Native UI Builder
    • When the WYSIWYG editor of the Native UI Builder for Windows® is running, a project deletion does not work properly. To solve the problem, close the editor.
    • If the WYSIWYG editor of the Native UI Builder for Windows® runs over 12 hours, your computer slows down because of the editor's high memory usage. To solve the problem, restart the Tizen IDE.
  • Emulator
    • Ubuntu sometimes stops responding for a few seconds after closing the Emulator Manager. This issue is related to a bug of IBus (Intelligent Input Bus). When the issue occurs, restart the ibus-daemon by entering the ibus-daemon –drx command at the command prompt, and use another framework, such as uim and fcitx, for multilingual input.
    • To use the Tizen Emulator, install an Intel VTx supported by the CPU, and the latest version of the graphic card driver which the vendor provides. Check the prerequisites for the Tizen Emulator from:
      • https://developer.tizen.org/downloads/sdk/installing-sdk/prerequisites-tizen-sdk.
      • If the host machine is using Nvidia Optimus™ technology on either Ubuntu or Windows®, you must set the Tizen Emulator to run with your Nvidia® graphics card. In case of Ubuntu, check the bumblebee project (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee). In case of Windows®, select High Speed NVIDIA Processor as Preferred Graphics processor in the Nvidia® control panel.
      • On Ubuntu, if the graphics driver is out-of-date, the Ubuntu desktop session can be occasionally logged out when launching the Emulator Manager, or the Emulator skin can be drawn improperly. Check the prerequisites and upgrade to the latest graphics driver.
    • On Ubuntu 14.04, a shortcut menu can sometimes appear transparently.
    • On Windows®, depending on your OS theme (such as Non-Aero themes and Windows XP themes), a display surface can be erased for a while if the Emulator window is covered with another window. If you click the Emulator window, the display surface runs correctly again.
    • On Windows®, if a ‘failed to allocate memory’ error occurs while executing the Emulator, try the following:
      • Close some other programs and try to launch the Emulator again.
      • If the RAM size is set to 768 or 1024 MB for the VM in the Emulator Manager, change it to 512 MB.
      • Increase the user area of the virtual memory in the system to 3 GB by entering the bcdedit /set increaseuserva 3072 command on the console with administrator rights (Windows® 7 only). And reboot.
    • If you use a MacBook Pro which has both Intel HD and NVidia GPUs, when you execute the Emulator with the OpenGL ES ver. v1.1 & v2.0 option, the Emulator can be unexpectedly terminated. Use the OpenGL ES ver. v2.0 & v3.0 option.
  • SDB
    • To use the SDB bash completion feature, enter the source .sdb-complete.bash command on the bash shell. The feature runs manually from the official Tizen 2.4 release onwards due to the Installer and Update Manager issue.
