Adobe Experience Manager 2017.3 Release
The Experience Manager Mobile team released version 2017.3 on Wednesday, March 15.
Copy Layout to Different Project
You now have the time-saving option of copying layout templates from one project to another. If the destination project includes a layout template with the same name, you can determine whether to overwrite the existing layout.
New Navigation Gesture Settings
You now have more control over swipe and bezel gestures in your iOS and Android apps. You can enable or disable pinch-to-zoom gestures in fixed layout, PDF, and HTML articles in iOS and Android apps. In iOS apps, you can enable or disable the pinch-to-close gesture as well as the bezel-swiping gesture (swiping from the left to go back a level or display the app menu).
New APIs for Purchasing and Downloading Content
You can use client-side purchasing APIs to determine the user’s App Store or direct entitlement purchase status for iOS and Android apps. For example, you can use this information to display different content in a dynamic banner or article based on whether the user has subscribed, never subscribed, or signed in using an expired subscription.
In addition, you can use collection download APIs to determine whether a collection can be downloaded, and you can provide UI to users to allow a collection to be downloaded or removed from download status (eligible to be removed from cache).
Dual-orientation Android Apps
When you build an Android app, you can make it portrait-only, landscape-only, or both—as with iOS apps. If you specify the “Both” option when building your app, browse pages, HTML articles, and smooth scrolling PDF articles fill the screen in either orientation. InDesign-based or PDF-based fixed-layout articles are letterboxed to fit the screen when users rotate the device away from the article’s target orientation.
Desktop Web Viewer Enhancements
Desktop Web Viewer now includes features previously made available in iOS and Android apps. Entitlement-aware search and the navigation goto formats for search and settings are now supported.
Status page updates by email
This will be the last product notification that also automatically will be sent out by email. Future product and status updates will be posted only on this status page.
