In our previous post about packing more punch into the OpenTok platform we talked about a new release cadence and support policy. In order to improve our users’ experience of the OpenTok platform, we will now provide support for the current and previous versions of the client libraries.
As a quick follow up to this, we’re announcing the first set of client libraries that we will no longer be supporting.
We’ve recently released patches for our mobile SDKs: OpenTok Android SDK 2.3.1 and OpenTok iOS SDK 2.3.1.
OpenTok iOS SDK 2.3.1
This patch release resolves the crash occurring on iOS 6 in 2.3.0 version. Some of our partners are using iOS devices which cannot be updated to iOS 7 or iOS 8. iOS 6 is now two generations old but we continue to maintain backwards compatibility for the current generation of iOS clients. Please note we reserve the right to review this policy in the future. Download it here.
Following on from our OpenTok archiving and storage announcement we’re excited to fill you in on some updates we are making to our OpenTok iOS and Android SDKs 2.2 that are going into production. What started out as internal engineering project has paved the way to the release of a suite of valuable mobile features which have become a formal part of the product offering, setting OpenTok further apart from other WebRTC platforms.
OpenTok Mobile SDKs, Revision 2: The Video Driver
In the latest versions of the OpenTok SDKs for iOS and Android, everything is new. We found an opportunity to learn from the lessons of the past two years, and seized it to conduct an overhaul of the architecture of the client. The 2.2.0 release of the iOS and Android SDKs marks the second major revision of the implementation of the OpenTok Mobile SDKs. This post highlights one of the many new features of the 2.2.0 SDKs, about which we are feeling particularly excited: the “Video Driver”. Although the feature exists with parity in both platforms, today we’ll focus on the iOS-variant of the new API.
Today we are releasing the OpenTok iOS SDK 2.2 Beta 3 that includes:
- Archiving integration
- Updated UI
- Bug fixes and improved stability
