Update to ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Android: 10.2.6-2

We are excited to provide another quick turnaround on an update to our recent 10.2.6 release of the Android SDK.  This is bug fix only release and there is no new functionality included with this minor but important fix.

To apply this fix, update your build.gradle file with the following dependency:

dependencies {
        compile 'com.esri.arcgis.android:arcgis-android:10.2.6-2'

If you’ve downloaded the local v10.2.6 download and use the local AAR library, you can get the updated AAR lib module in the 10.2.6-2 download file.  All other SDK components are the same, so no need to download if you use the AAR lib in the preferred method from our Bintray maven URL.

All of our samples have been updated to use our latest version and developer instructions on how to sync your local fork of the samples with our public repository.  We invite you to collaborate with the community and the Esri development team on GeoNet & our GitHub samples and maps-app repos.

AppStudio for ArcGIS Beta 2 released

Just a bit short of 2000 beta users, the AppStudio for ArcGIS beta program is full of great ideas and suggestions.  It is amazing to see the number of different apps built so far! You have helped guide our efforts and today we are pleased to announce the availability of AppStudio for ArcGIS Beta 2.

Your feedback has told us:

  • All platforms and form factors are important to you, but when it comes to building new apps, Windows is the most important to you.
  • You love creating apps from our templates
  • The ArcGIS Cloud Make service rocks: Being about to simply tick some boxes, and have Esri build installation files for you app for all the platforms – is pure gold!
  • We need to supply more guidance and help for creating your own apps

AppStudio for ArcGIS Beta 2 provides improvements in all of these areas plus more

  • AppStudio for ArcGIS now works great on a wider range of Windows devices including virtual machines. You can also use it over Remote Desktop.
  • The current templates have been updated with improved webmap and web services support. This is of particular importance to the Map Viewer template!
  • The Extend Apps tab at doc.arcgis.com now contains topics to help you build your own app and we have started adding more video tutorials (more are coming soon!)
  • Localization is well underway for all 28 languages currently supported by ArcGIS.
  • A new AppStudio for ArcGIS video series has been created at video.arcgis.com. In here you can watch the DevSummit Tech Sessions on AppStudio for ArcGIS as well as video tutorials etc

We will continue with a close eye in our forums. Keep your feedback coming!

Developer Summit Europe

To build on the success of recent Developer Summit in California, we’ve decided to take the event on the road. Esri will be hosting 3 Dev Summits in Europe this September.

I hope developers from all over Europe and the world will come together in Rotterdam, Berlin or London (all 3 if you want). The technical sessions will focus on becoming more effective at building web, mobile and desktop applications. Senior Esri development staff will be presenting so you’ll get a chance to see what’s coming next. Registration information will be available soon but mark your calendar now and plan to join us in Europe.
