Breaking changes

  • With Appcelerator Studio 5.1.0 release, we have upgraded the Eclipse core from 4.4 to 4.7. This update brings a different directory structure to Studio for MacOS users.
  • Due to several internal changes, it is not possible to update from Studio 5.0.0 to 5.1.0. Users are advised to download and install a fresh copy of Studio 5.1.0 installer directly for both Windows and MacOS. Please review Uninstalling Studio for removing Studio (as necessary for your setup). 
  • You are advised to use the existing workspace directory when launching Studio 5.1.0 to get your old studio projects
