Update from Appcelerator Studio
If you changed the update type to Release Candidate Build to get last week’s RC, then you can switch back to Stable Release now and check for updates.
Known Issues: The prompt for the CLI update does not display the release notes (TISTUD-7996) which results in an error (TISTUD-7995). Also, if you have a nightly build of a SDK version later than 5.2 installed, you might need to (re)move this for Studio to find 5.2.0.GA. Or update the SDK form the CLI. Finally, be aware that you need to use LiveView once in Studio before you can use it from the CLI again after the update (TISTUD-7746).
Update from Command Line
Studio will update the CLI and SDK for you. To update them from the command line:
[sudo] npm install -g appcelerator appc setup
Titanium & Alloy CLI
The Appcelerator CLI contains Titanium CLI 5.0.6 (2016-01-14) and Alloy CLI 1.7.33 (2016-01-15). If you are using the stand-alone CLIs and haven’t updated them lately, then you can get these versions from the command line:
[sudo] npm install -g titanium alloy
If you run into any issues that seem related to the updates, please report them on JIRA. First check if it’s a known issue you can watch. If you can’t find an existing ticket, then create one in the Appcelerator Community (AC) project and include as much relevant information as you can.
