New or changed features for the Agentry Toolkit.

Agentry Support for iOS 9.0
Agentry applications now run on iOS 9.0, with some exceptions. You cannot yet compile the Agentry OpenUI iOS SDK against the iOS 9 SDK using Xcode 7, so some iOS 9.0 features, such as multitasking split view and slideover, are not yet available for Agentry applications.

Some new iOS 9.0 features (such as split view and slideover) will not be enabled for applications that have been compiled on Xcode 6 against the iOS 8 SDK on iOS 9.

Agentry Support for Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)

Agentry applications now run on Android Marshmallow (6.0). You cannot yet compile the Agentry OpenUI Android SDK against the Marshmallow SDK, so some features may not yet be available for Agentry applications.

Agentry Support for Windows 10 Enterprise

Agentry applications now run on Windows 10 Enterprise. The Windows Platform Frame (WPF) client is supported for Windows 10 Enterprise.

Enhancements to Agentry Test Environment
New features that are available with the Agentry test environment (which is included with Agentry Editor) help you debug test client objects, and quickly find objects in the Object Inspector.
  • Auto-Link ‒ hover over screens, tiles, controls, and buttons on any test client screen in the Agentry test environment, and press F1 to show debugging information.

  • Link with Selection ‒ with the Object Inspector's Link with Selection toolbar button selected, you can select an object on the test client in the Agentry test environment, and see the object in its relative position in the hierarchy of the test environment's Object Inspector window.

  • Finding Objects in the Object Hierarchy

Agentry Transmit Configuration Documentation

The documentation for Agentry Transmit Configuration now includes additional override values. You can override default TransmitConfiguration.ini values for an application by creating a custom TransmitConfiguration.ini.

Documented in: Developer > Agentry App Development > Agentry Language Reference > Application Level Definitions Overview, see the Transmit Configuration topic.

Agentry Publication Changes

Clusters, introduced in 3.0 SP03, changed how application and server configuration is managed in SAP Mobile Platform. Configuration values are now stored in the SAP Mobile Platform data store, and available to all server nodes. For Agentry, this means the Agentry.ini functionality is no longer needed in production environments.

Agentry.ini is still included when you use Agentry Editor to publish to a development environment. But when you publish to production, you no longer include the Agentry.ini file. All the configuration values are included in the .ZIP file that Agentry Editor creates. Errors result if you include Agentry.ini.

When you publish an Agentry application in the cockpit, configuration values are added to the data store, and distributed to all server nodes. When you upload an updated version of an Agentry application, the configuration values are updated in the data store, and distributed to all server nodes.
