IOS 8 Installs & Customizing the Pull To Refresh

Picture
One of our pro users alerted us to an issue with iOS 8 that might trigger a case where apps can't be installed OTA (Over the air, via QR or email links) and only installed via itunes. We didn't experience this issue ourselves but it seems to be affecting many developers (not Codename One specific). This is due to caching of package bundle ID's and he provided some resources here that might be of interest:

On an unrelated subject the pull to refresh functionality was a bit uncustomizable up until now, this all changed with the latest release and should now be far more customizable. To replace the icon you can define the theme constant pullToRefreshImage to the right image. To customize the appearance of the text etc. you can now use the PullToRefresh UIID and to customize the text just define the following constants in the localization bundle:
pull.release (defaults to "Release to refresh...") & pull.down (defaults to "Pull down do refresh...").

As you may have noticed we are deep into the last minute JavaOne preparations so everything we do is around that work. During the weekend of Friday the 26th both Chen and myself will be in transit to San Francisco and so we will not be able to address support queries or answer forum questions during that time. During that entire week we will have relatively limited forum presence due to our workload at that time.
