  1. Google Play: Error 103 during installation

    Basically, the jarsigner in Java 7 and above uses a default hash method that older devices do not support.

    Can Corona include all the parameters needed to use later versions of Java during build process?

      • Offset circular bodies

        An offset value for circular bodies in much the same way that offset/angled rectangular bodies can be defined. Adding the ability to offset a circular body would allow many shapes with much greater ease than currently.

        • luasql

          hi, i just wrote an article on the forum about this today. adding luasql as an integral part of the build or as an option would be Great for getting lua into more hands and making it more useful. apps are the future and adding data sources really improves developers options to write/solve more complex solutions and will get lua into more developers hands...

          • Update mask

            Mask are a very old stuff. It's horrible to use them. A major update is need.
            - Auto create of mask for tap and touch object to not detect transparent part (the image can be create during build).
            - ImageSheet for mask
            - Native use imageSuffix
            - ....

            • OS X Desktop Notifications

              It would be really helpful if we could send push notifications to an OSX Desktop app in the same way we can for iOS and Android.

              In particular it'd be really good to be able to put an 'unread messages' red notification badge on the app icon in the Mac taskbar.

              Happy to fund a plugin developer on this if that is possible, though I understand it may need changes in the Corona core before this can happen.

              • Get the exact with and height of the text content

                It would be so great to get the exact height and with of the text object contents, even after the text field content changes.

                • Enable Corona apps to run on Chromebooks

                  Most new Chromebooks will have Google Play pre-installed so it would be great if Corona apps could work natively.

                    • Nintendo Switch Support

                      Now that it has been confirmed that the Nintendo Switch will allow for games that only support the touchscreen - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-02-27-nintendo-switch-has-its-first-touchscreen-only-game - it seems like a good time to bring up the question of Corona support.

                      Obviously supporting new platforms is a massive undertaking, however, it would be great to know if this is even considered a possibility?

                      With the support for touchscreen-only games and the fact that Unity will be supporting the Switch, I can imagine a lot of previously mobile-only games finding a new home on the console.

                        • TLS 1.2 as default on Android below 5.0

                          Security update

                          As we know old standard as TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 are insecure

                          Actually Corona support the secure TLS 1.2 and it's perfect

                          The real problem born when you install your secure app on a device with Android version below 5.0
                          These Android version support TLS 1.2, but it is not set as default protocol.

                          So the feature request it's to force the use of protocol TLS 1.2 also in the older Android version (below 5.0)

                          It's really important for any business app using security

                          Thank you

                          • create a system.setLocationMinTime() to complement the system.setLocationThreshold for the GPS battery management.

                            The Android Location Manager uses a minTime and minDistance combination in the requestLocationUpdates methods to determine how often to send a location event. Currently, you use the system.setLocationThreshold (according to docs) to set the minDistance between events. I understand that you currently hardcode the minTime to 1000. Allowing the minTime to be set through a system.setLocationMinTime() would greatly simplify gps capabilities.

                              • "Better" support for "native" Desktop Plugin development via Enterprise

                                As of right now you can build native Desktop Plugins but there many things missing that would make it easier. Note this is not referring to shared plugins like the zip plugin or open ssl plugin. Nor is it pure lua plugins.
                                1.Samples, if you look inside the Corona Enterprise right now there are a ton of sample for iOS and Android and there are a ton of open sourced plugins for mobile i.e https://github.com/coronalabs/plugins-source but there is practically no sample for desktop. Maybe open source the new Steam Plugin.
                                2.Documentation, sure there are lots of forums posts from the…

                                  • Waiting for process

                                    I want to wait process when call some Web Service or REST or Process. When finish and return result it's will be to execute next statement of code. (such as async / await in C# or DoEvents in VB)

                                    Big Thank.

                                      • Allow sprite path deformation, akin to rect or mesh

                                        This is related, BUT NOT EQUIVALENT, to this other request already marked completed:

                                        http://feedback.coronalabs.com/forums/188732-corona-sdk-feature-requests-feedback/suggestions/3720595-2-5d-sprite-control-quad-control-setting-corne

                                        Specifically, add path deformation to *SPRITES*, which the Graphics 2.0 engine does NOT currently support. (the other request asks for the same thing, but failed to obtain it, and marked as complete even though sprites do NOT support path deformation)

                                        The current Graphics 2.0 engine allows path deformation of quads (as created with display.newRect(), new Image(), display.newImageRect()) and recently meshes, but does not allow path deformation of sprites (as created with display.newSprite())

                                        Please expose either: properties (akin to x1/y1..x4/y4 as used by quads) or methods (akin…
