We are pleased to announce the availability of Ice Touch 1.1.

The most significant change in this release is a completely new mapping for Asynchronous Method Invocation (AMI), which takes advantage of Objective-C blocks to provide an API that is both more convenient and more closely aligned with that of other Ice language mappings.

Other new features in this release:
  • Accessory transport - Enables Ice Touch applications to communicate with accessories connected to an iOS device via USB or Bluetooth
  • Dispatcher facility - As seen in other Ice language mappings, the dispatcher facility greatly simplifies the task of integrating Ice Touch into a graphical application
  • Background applications - Support for VoIP applications that run in the background
Refer to the release notes for more details on the changes in Ice Touch 1.1. To download the release, please visit the download page.

If you are building Ice applications for iOS devices, please note that Ice Touch 1.1 requires iOS version 4.0.2 or later. Consequently, Ice Touch 1.1 cannot be used in iPad applications until iOS 4 is available for iPad. Meanwhile, iPad developers can continue to use Ice Touch 1.0.

Thank you for your continued support.
