Appcelerator CLI 5.2.1 Release Note

Appcelerator CLI 5.2.1 - 24 March 2016

Appcelerator CLI 5.2.1 is a patch release that includes a few improvements and several bug fixes.

Component Versions

The following components are shipped with CLI 5.2.1:

Alloy 1.8.2
Arrow Builder 1.7.29
Arrow Cloud CLI 1.2.0
Titanium CLI 5.0.6

Fixed Issues

  • CLI-928 - 9.2.1 iPhone crashes when jailbreak-detect is enabled
  • CLI-943 - Core 5.2.0 displays incorrect/confusing warning if NPM is still < 4.2.3
  • CLI-949 - Windows: config files are written to different drive than process.env.HOME
  • CLI-950 - Process doesn't cleanup children in certain scenarios
  • CLI-957 - Unable to build modules from Appc CLI
  • CLI-967 - iOS: Arguments to path.join must be strings
  • CLI-973 - Update Alloy version to 1.8.0


CLI 5.2.1 now supports the creation of test applications without the need to create a classic project (CLI-687). You can now use the --testapp flag with appc new to do the same thing in one step. Previously, you had to run the following steps:

appc new -t titanium --classic -i com.appc.picker -n AlloyPicker
cd AlloyPicker
appc alloy new --testapp ui/picker

With this version, you can use this one command:

appc new -t titanium -i com.appc.picker -n AlloyPicker --testapp ui/picker
