It’s only been a couple of months since we pushed out our last release, but here we are again with another release because we wanted to share with you some of the exciting work we’ve done since then.
Some of you may have noticed that we recently released a new version of the ArcGIS for iOS app. This is no coincidence. We tried to ensure that any new functionality added to the application is developed bottom up from the SDK API or eventually rolled up into API, so that you too can take advantage of any new capabilities in your own apps. Going forward, you can expect this trend of app releases followed closely by SDK releases to continue. We believe this will allow us to release a better designed, better tested, and more usable SDK.
Version 2.3 of the SDK adds support for some notable features such as -
- Tile and Feature services hosted on ArcGIS Online. These services allow you to use Esri’s cloud to store and serve your maps. These services are available through an ArcGIS Online Organization Subscription.
- Fine-grained editing capabilities such as the ability to edit the attributes of a feature but not its geometry or the ability to create new features only but not edit existing ones.
- Ownership-based editing policies such as preventing users from modifying a feature that was created by someone else.
For more information about these improvements and how to migrate your existing applications to the new SDK, please refer to the documentation.
