Updating the current version

Studio automatically checks for updates and will notify users of updates in a bubble on the bottom right-hand corner of the IDE.

You can also manually check for updates within Studio by choosing Check for Appcelerator Updates from the Help menu.

If there are none available, Studio will display a "No updates were found" message.

  1. From the Help menu, select Check for Appcelerator Updates.
  2. If updates are available, the Update Manager will list them.
  3. Check the updates you wish to install and click Next.
  4. Review the updates and click Next.
  5. Choose the option for I accept the terms of the license agreements and click Finish.
  6. Once the update is complete, you will be prompted to restart Studio for the changes to be applied.

Note about upgrading to Studio 5.1.0: You cannot update to Studio 5.1.0.

  • 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
