Today Apple releases the GA version of OS X 10.9 as a free update. If you need to upgrade to Mavericks, we’ve prepared a new update of Studio for you. However, a number of the native SDK software vendors have some kinks remaining in their products, so if you are using HAXM-accelerated Android emulators, Tizen emulators, or BlackBerry emulators, we recommend holding off upgrading to OS X 10.9 until these issues have been sorted out.
Titanium and Appcelerator Studio
The version of Eclipse upon which Studio 3.1.3 is based has issues with file selection dialogs in Mavericks. We’ve corrected this in Studio 3.1.4 by changing the version of Eclipse upon which Studio is based. A guide to visual changes between Studio 3.1.3 and 3.1.4 is available.
Android and Tizen Emulators
Numerous individuals outside the Titanium developer community have reported issues with hardware-accelerated emulators, in particular those for Android and Tizen. It appears that there is a general compatibility issue between HAXM and OS X 10.9. Intel has been alerted to the problem. We have our own tracking issue in ticket TIMOB-15455.
The BlackBerry emulators are VMWare images. Currently, the images appear to refuse to start or respond slowly, even when using VMWare Fusion 6. We have alerted BlackBerry to the issue. You can track that issue via ticket TIMOB-15456.
