We have made a lot of updates in Rich UI area in RBD 9.6. We added responsive design support into Rich UI by adding EGL bootstrap and ionic widget libraries from scratch. Apart from that, we also try to keep currency for the existing Rich UI support.
Support chromium render engine
Cordova tool update
In RBD 9.6, EGL Cordova library and tools are updated to 6.5.0. When we introduced EGL cordova, the Android project was built by eclipse Android development toolkit. But later, Android has moved to Android Studio. And it keeps changing the project structure and the SDK structure etc. Some of the changes are breaking changes that makes old version of cordova broken for Android. The update of Cordova tool makes it to work with Android studio. However, the Android is still on the way of evolving. So it is possible that the current cordova version become outdated.
RBD v9.6 supports a new widget 'DojoPasswordTextField' to provide a unified look and feel for applications based on Dojo. Additionally, it supports more properties like placeHolder that the RUI PasswordTextField does not.
Widget projects version update
Since we have resolved many APARs for RUI, the RUI widget projects version are updated. The updated versions are
- For EGL widgets that are not based on Dojo: com.ibm.egl.rui_4.3.6
- For EGL Dojo widgets: com.ibm.egl.rui.dojo.widgets_2.4.0
