First off, thanks to everyone who came out to the Esri International Developer Summit in Palm Springs. It was great to meet you, share in your passion for technology, and get clear and direct feedback from you.
Some of you at the conference reported to us performance issues you were experiencing in your iOS apps after upgrading to version 10.1.1 of SDK. Some of these issues have also been previously reported on the user forums. We’re happy to announce today that we have an update that will greatly improve performance of your iOS apps by reducing memory and CPU utilization of the display subsystem. You can download the update here.
To our international users, we would also like to point out that this update adds translations for 6 new languages – Danish, Estonian, Hebrew, Latvian, Lithuanian, and Portuguese (Portugal).
We encourage you to try out the update and let us know how things go. As always, we’ll be listening.
