NeoMAD 4.1 release notes¶
September 16, 2016
NeoMAD 4.1 requires
Three major issues have been identified with older versions of NeoMAD with iOS10 :
View.setBackground() will crash the application when poping a screen containing views that call the method
* App submission fails if the 40x40
icon is not provided
* Signature step fails with older versions of NeoMAD
Your applications must provide a 40x40 icon for iOS.
You should rebuild your applications with NeoMAD 4.1 to fix these issues.
iOS 7 support is stopped¶
Xcode 8 is not compatible with the
NeoMAD 4.1 now supports the three major versions : iOS 8, 9 and 10.
ATS (App Transport Security) for iOS 10¶
iOS 10, the use of ATS is required. For NeoMAD users, it means that applications that do not specify
<httpAuthorizedDomains> in the URS will
have to specify why all the HTTP domains are allowed in their application when publishing to the App Store. Apple may then reject the application.
To avoid that problem, only use HTTPS connection in your application. In that case declare
<httpAuthorizedDomains /> in the URS. You will have
no problem when submitting your application.
Note that if your application already uses only HTTPS connection, you will need to declare
<httpAuthorizedDomains /> if not already done to avoid the App Store justification.
If your application needs to connect to specific HTTP domains, you can specify them in the URS using the
<domain> section in
However you will still need to justify why you allow these domains when publishing in the App Store (but only for these domains).
NeoMAD 4.1 can be used with the latest version of
Android Platform (API Level 24).
NeoMAD 4.1 does not provide
ProGuard tool anymore and uses the one delivered with
Android SDK supports
Java 8 and its library is built with
Java 8. The
ProGuard tool provided by
Android SDK is not compatible with
Java 8. To fix this issue, you will have to install the
ProGuard 5.0 version in your Android SDK installation if you installed the
Android Platform (API Level 24). NeoMAD will throw an error at build time if the
Android Platform (API Level 24) is found but with the wrong
- Some iOS API now requires to declare permissions to be used. Unlike the other platforms, these permissions require a “permission usage description”. This a localized String that must describe to the user why the permission is required. This String must be declared in the
res/string/info.xmlresource file in NeoMAD. Note that even if the “permission usage description” is set, you must declare the permission in the URS.
<location>tag is now deprecated. To set the permission usage description for the LOCATION permission, use

TextField.setPadding(): calling twice the method will increment padding value.
- Fix empty icon tile when the application is pinned to the start page.
