#3

The .app has had a significant refactor for this release, so I’d like people to give it a try as well. You can download it here.

#4

I have been waiting for 1.3.5 release to use waitForAppScript option but it seems like this is not included in this release.
The server still complains with error: Unrecognized arguments: --waitForAppScript


#5

Pretty sure that’s a cap and not an arg.


#6

sorry, I misunderstood the usage of this cap.

But even I use waitForAppScript as a cap, it still doesn’t resolve the issue around this: https://github.com/appium/appium/issues/4178

Appium still does not work in some case if the alert of push notification pops up so early


#7

I recommend commenting on that issue then so the devs become aware the problem isn’t resolved.


#8

Is new .app having this fix?


#9

@silvernsmile

Can you try manually creating the directory “/Users/admin/.npm/_git-remotes/git-github-com-vojtajina-traceur-compiler-f4c43c65”? The mkdir cmd is where it all goes wrong, looks like.


#11

These release is for window also?


#12

@vijay_kumar Appium is cross-platform, so any release should work on Windows, OSX, and Linux.

You may be thinking of the GUIs (eg Appium.exe) which provide platform-specific wrappers. The GUIs are maintained separately, so you will have to inquire with the Appium.exe team regarding the ETA.


#13

I can confirm the issue in bug https://github.com/appium/appium/issues/4178 appears to be uncorrected. I’ve updated the original bug report.


#14

i find only mac o.s version of 1.3.5 in appium.org site


#15

I installed it in OSX and noticed the settings dialogs are different now and seem to have dark text that is hard to read. Is this a known issue?


#16

I did the upgrade successfully but when I start it via command line it show 1.3.4. Do I need to do something else?


#17

@Brian Agreed, the accessibility of the 1.3.5-beta Appium.app settings dialogs is poor. You have a grey text over a grey background. There’s not enough contrast and it’s challenging to read.

Logged bug here: https://github.com/appium/appium-dot-app/issues/456


#18

I had the same problem and the only way I can install 1.3.5-beta successfully is to uninstall node then reinstall everything. I know it is a bad way but that’s all I can do


#19

do we have build for windows as .dmg is for OSX rite?


#20

The mac version has a bug, the iOS dialog is not working, i see the android dialog twice.
when clicking on iOS/ android icon
