Notable Resolved Issues

The latest release of Icenium resolves a number of issues, including but not limited to the following list.

General

  • You might not be able to save your work.
    In Mist or Graphite, after you deploy an app to device and LiveSync with the three-finger gesture on an iOS device or the Menu button on an Android device, you might not be able to save your work.
    In Mist, after you deploy an app to Ion from a QR code, you might not be able to save your work.
  • When you build for iOS devices, rsync error might appear on a random basis.
  • If your Android application archive contains a zero byte file, you cannot deploy the app on device. The application unpacking cannot complete.
  • If your Android application archive contains a zero byte file, you cannot LiveSync by using the Menu button.
    When you attempt to LiveSync your changes, the following error message appears: Error: data error.
  • In the Resolve Synchronization Conflicts dialog, you cannot preview the cloud version of the file.
    The dialog displays the local version of the file only.
  • You cannot remove all permissions for your Android app from PropertiesAndroidPermissions.
    If you remove all permissions and deploy the app on device Android prompts you to confirm that the app has all the permissions you have just removed.
  • In the code editor, in HTML files, when you type a tag that does not require an end tag (such as <img>, <input> or <meta>), Icenium adds an end tag. This behavior might cause errors in your code.

Graphite

  • After you update Graphite to the latest version, it might not load or run properly and you might need to delete the local cache manually.
  • You cannot clone an app from the Github tab.
    When you provide GitHub credentials, the following error message appears: Sequence contains no matching element. The issue is caused by a change in the GitHub API.
  • If you open and close a file before the synchronization with Icenium Cloud Services is complete, you cannot reopen the file in the current Graphite session.
    When you create or open an app, Graphite needs to synchronize your local workspace with your workspace in the cloud. When you open and close a file before the synchronization completes, a System.AggregateException is added to the log and you cannot reopen the file. To open the file, you need to restart Graphite, open your app, wait for the synchronization to complete and then open the file.
  • When you use relative paths to include resources in your app, the simulator renders them properly even though it should not be able to load them.
  • You cannot test click events for the Kendo UI Mobile ListView widget in the simulator.
    Click events do not fire in the simulator in Graphite.
  • Apps created with the Bootstrap UI framework are not rendered properly in the simulator.
    The application screens do not fit the device screen.
  • In the code editor, you cannot scroll files with long lines. Scrolling in the file causes Graphite to freeze.
  • In the code editor, you cannot block comment code in HTML files with the keyboard shortcut or from the context menu.
    If you select code and press Ctrl+Alt+/ or right-click the selection and select Code CommandsBlock Comment, Icenium inserts a JavaScript multi line comment instead of an HTML block comment.
  • In the code editor, when you add comments at the top of a JS file, the following exception might be added to the log: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException.

Mist

  • When logging into Mist, your login cookie might become corrupted and a server error might occur. You might not be able to continue your work.
    To be able to run Mist again in your browser, you need to remove all cookies stored under the domain app.icenium.com.
  • After you resolve version control conflicts for a file that is currently open in the code editor, the file in the code editor is not automatically refreshed.
