February 7, 2014

Apple recently began rejecting apps that use Advertising Identifier for purposes other than advertising. DPS viewers include the Facebook SDK for social sharing, so Apple has been rejecting all newly submitted DPS apps. To fix this issue, Adobe disabled iOS 6 social sharing in newly created apps. This change to the viewer does not affect any app already in the App Store. It affects only new builds of v28 and v29 apps.

In any new v28 or v29 app, the entire social sharing menu—not just the Facebook option—is disabled on devices that run iOS 6. The social sharing menu is still available on iOS 7 devices.

If Apple rejected your app recently due to the Advertising Identifier, use DPS App Builder to rebuild your app, and re-submit it to the App Store. This is a server-side change, so updating DPS App Builder is not required.

Historically, we do not know of a case where Apple has rejected an existing app in the store, so existing apps should not be affected. 

February 5, 2014

Bug fixed in which downloaded folios were being deleted from the library whenever the non-Newsstand app was removed from memory and restarted. This bug was caused by extended characters in the publication. It affected the Adobe Content Viewer and non-Newsstand DPS apps. (3691128)

The Newsstand cover now updates properly with a background push notification even if the user is not entitled to the folio. (3684294)

For base analytics, the Audience Settings list is no longer truncated in the Accumulation Settings list when the account includes a large number of folios. (3681417) Several additional display issues were addressed.

January 30, 2014

DPS App Builder was updated to fix a subscription banner bug In AIR-based Android viewers. On HD Android devices, the default library subscription tile was displayed instead of the specified subscription banner. With the update to DPS App Builder, the custom subscription banner now appears on all supported Android devices. To incorporate this change, update DPS App Builder and edit or create an Android app.

December, 2013

When folios are downloaded in the background, a "new issue available" message sometimes appears even when users are reading the most current version.

Scrollable frames in web viewer that were embedded in other overlays had stopped working properly with the v29 release. This issue was resolved with a December 10, 2013 hot fix. No action is required.

Social Sharing was not working properly in some v27 and v28 apps if folios were published after the release of v29. This issue was resolved with a December 10, 2013 hot fix. It should not be necessary to re-publish the folios or take any other action.
