Studio Release Notes

Studio 4.5.0 is a minor release that includes new features, improvements, and bug fixes. See the full list of issues address in Release 4.5.0.

As of this release, Studio 4.4.x will not be supported six months from 4.5.0.GA's release date. See Axway Appcelerator Deprecation Policy and Nominal Lifetimes documents for details.

New Features

  • Studio allows drag-and-drop CLI created projects (native, Arrow, and Module) into Appcelerator Studio Project Explorer.

  • Studio now has a defined range of compatible CLI versions. If the CLI or Studio  doesn't fall within the defined range of one another, the user will be prompted to update either Studio or the CLI accordingly.
  • When a user logs in or out of Studio, the user will be reminded that they are in trial period. This is shown only for Developer Trial/free Plans.


  • Studio now creates swift based watchOS2 projects with SDK 5.2 and higher.
  • Improved startup performance by loading organizations in the background
  • During Studio updates, Studio will verify the minimum required Node.js version is set to at least 0.12.7. If the minimum version is not found, a wizard will launch and help you to install the necessary version.
  • When creating a new Alloy project, only the appc new call happens instead of calling that command plus appc alloy new
  • For new workspaces, the console's output is no longer limited to 200,000 characters. Existing workspaces can set a new limit by clicking on Window > Preferences > Run/Debug > Console. There will a checkbox called "Limit console output" and a textfield where you can enter the buffer size (up to 1,000,000 characters).
  • You can now abort Appcelerator CLI installs or upgrades via an alert window
  • As Appc studio doesn't support JDK 1.8, during the installation phase if studio couldn't find JDK 1.7 in the system, it will install JDK 1.7 even though it has JDK 1.8.

  • Instead of failing a Windows build, the user is now prompted for a GUID
  • Previously bad installs of Appcelerator CLI no longer prevents future updates from failing
