Release 2.1 of the ios_system libraries:
Contains a precompiled version of all the libraries and frameworks associated with ios_system:
Three major changes:
- we now use frameworks instead of dynamic libraries; apparently naked dynamic libraries are forbidden on the AppStore (see issue #103 in OpenTerm: louisdh/openterm#103 )
- the list of commands and their associated libraries has been moved outside of the source code. So adding new commands can be done without having to recompile the ios_system framework.
- we removed calls to private APIs (there is now an automatic check on app submission).
New global variable:
sideLoading. It is supposed to be
falseif you plan to release through the AppStore,
trueif you're downloading software to your own device. If
false, we load a smaller number of commands and output less debugging information.
The command "groups" was removed.
There are two lists of commands, both of them under
extraCommandsDictionary.plist. The former is always loaded, the latter only if
Both files have the following format:
<key>chksum</key> <array> <string>files.framework/files</string> <string>chksum_main</string> <string>o:</string> <string>file</string> </array>
As before, 2 versions of pre-compiled binaries available:
- release = iOS_system.framework and all the associated libraries. Useful when you're building an application, like shell, ivim...
- smallRelease = ios_system.framework + openssl.framework + libssh2.framework. Useful when you need to compile a new library.
The TeX libraries and ctags have not been converted to frameworks, as no application on the AppStore is using them currently. It might change in the future.
