Release Notes, 6.7.0

​

Upcoming Improvements in ECMAScript 6 Compliance

This release brings in under-the-hood changes in the V8 and JavaScriptCore engines for the upcoming improvements in ECMAScript 6 compliance. Stay tuned for the next release for full improvements and details.

🚧Upcoming Deprecation of iOS 9 Support

To be able to improve the ECMAScript 6 compliance, Smartface 6.7.0 will be the last version to support iOS 9 as JavaScriptCore on iOS9 is not compliant with ECMAScript 6. Please note that based on the official statistics provided by Apple, currently, less than 5% of the devices are using iOS 9 and below.

🚧Upcoming Deprecation of Android x86 Support

Smartface 6.7.0 will be the last version to support x86 architecture on Android as Intel discontinued the mobile processor line 2 years ago. Applications may still work fine on x86 devices with the built-in support in Android to run ARM binaries in x86, though this is not guaranteed.

As in the screenshot, preview of Times New Roman is shown in the Text field.
