Today we are releasing a maintenance update for Codebook, version 1.5.4. There are no feature updates, it provides fixes for crashes related to syncing with Dropbox, particularly after a user resets her password and attempts to sync with the remote replica.
Note: Version 1.5.4 will be the last version of Codebook to support iOS 3, unless any bad bugs turn up between now and the release of Codebook 1.6.0.
With Codebook for iOS 1.6.0 we will be requiring our customers to have iOS 4.0 or greater installed on their devices. We realize this will be painful for a small number of some of our customers, but it’s important that we prepare Codebook to adopt new technologies in iOS 4 and iOS 5 while shedding the weight of deprecated APIs. Being that iPhone 3G devices and later support iOS 4, and that these all appear to run more efficiently with iOS 4, this new platform requirement shouldn’t keep many from upgrading, and will allow us to add features to Codebook more quickly in the future. We have big changes planned for the future, and we expect we’ll be requiring iOS 5 once we get around to releasing Codebook 2.0.
