AppStudio 8.5.2 released!

We’re pleased to announce that 8.5.2 has been released.

It resolves a few issues with 8.5. Plus, Volt is now called VoltServer, which should be less confusing now that VoltBuilder and VoltSigner are real products.

One thing to look out for: there are changes to how SQLite works in native apps. Read "Breaking Changes" below.

Here is what is new and changed in 8.5.2:

  1. SQLite: Does not execute SqlImport until initialization is complete.
  2. SQLite: If a Cordova SQLite plugin is specified in config.xml, it will override the native WebSQL. (possible breaking change!)
  3. VoltServer: Deploy without an account disabled in demo.
  4. VoltServer: Volt and Volt server are now called VoltServer
  5. Demo: Period shortened to 10 days due to abuse.
  6. IDE: Node updated to version 14.16.

Breaking change : When running as a native app, the Cordova library is used instead of the browser's. That means the database data will be saved in the file system and not in the browser's sandbox. Please check where your app is saving the data: you may have to consider a migration strategy if you are affected. Please contact if you need help. The need for this changed comes from Safari changing support for WebSQL. This does NOT affect web apps.

You can download the new release from within AppStudio or from our site.
