The new ArcGIS Runtime SDKs for 10.2 are almost here! And they’re full of new capabilities to help you stay productive when building and deploying your apps. Plus, with this release, the much-anticipated offline API will be available in beta!
Deep Dive into the New Features at 10.2
New 10.2 features include: geodesic polygons, oAuth, PKI security and federated services, enhanced geometry operations and much more.
We see huge performance enhancements with the display, making these maps some of the fastest maps your users will ever interact with.
It seems like everyday a new device gets released into the market! Given all the platforms ArcGIS Runtime supports, chances are you’ll find the support you need for your selected device. Qt and Mac OS X get released and are ready for production!
Portal for ArcGIS
Connect to your Portal for ArcGIS instance, which has been secured with your preferred mechanism (PKI, HTTP/IWA or token security), and be sure to access it from your Runtime apps. Federate your servers to allow users credentials to flow through the system giving a smoother and more integrated user experience.
Finally, the offline API will be arriving. Now you can create apps that take your data offline, edit the data, and sync your changes back to the server. Keep in mind this feature is currently in beta at 10.2, so it will not quite be ready for prime time. The 10.2.1 release in Q1 2014 is when this functionality will be officially supported. Until then, you won’t be able to deploy and distribute your applications using offline capabilities, but we wanted to give you an early look at the API.
