    • 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.

              • More Status Bar Options (Android)

                Currently icons must be white, and the status bar is either black with white icons or a grey-ish tinted transparent. With these options we cannot follow material design.

                It would be great to see options such as a Fully Translucent status bar (no background at all) with either light or dark icons (the Google Calendar does this with dark icons for example)

                This thread appears to show how to set the status bar to transparent: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/29311078/android-completely-transparent-status-bar

                It is mentioned that "the answer to totally disabling the translucency or any color placed on the status bar and navigation bar for lollipop…

                  • 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…

                          • timely support of new Android target SDKs (because Google really wants this!)

                            the newest target SDK should be supported very fast because Google wants this. It is essential for an app to be considered for a feature on Google Play.

                            • enterFrame events fired on display objects

                              Right now it is only possible to listen to enterFrame events on the Runtime object. This makes it hard to propagate this event to all display objects needing to update their game logic on a per-frame basis.

                              Firstly, the enterFrame listeners need to be removed when the display objects "die", secondly, they also need to be removed/paused when a composer scene hides, and attached again when the scene shows.

                              It would be much better to have enterFrame events being dispatched to display objects, only when the scene they belong to is currently shown.

                              • Box2D: Add body and general functions

                                I've been following a box2d tutorial for buoyancy and it uses the body function "GetLinearVelocityFromWorldPoint". Could we get an equivalent to this or "GetLinearVelocityFromLocalPoint" function. I know they would be useful for other applications other than the buoyancy tutorial.

                                Also, there is a setter function for the simulation scale, but there is no getter. (physics.setScale, but no physics.getScale)

                                This is the link for the tutorial:
                                http://www.iforce2d.net/b2dtut/buoyancy

                                • Ability to empty a GroupObject in a single method call.

                                  In a tight loop, I've found that iterating a GroupObject and removing children can be quite expensive when there are a lot of child objects (think 500-1000), could we have a method like group:clear() or group:empty() to remove all of the elements quickly in the native side of things?

                                    there is no way displaying image online without downloading
                                    for this, should make a widget or display for online images

                                    • APNG Anim PNG

                                      APNG will realy help us to do lighter apps.
                                      It's a not very use but very powerfull. It's between PNG and GIF

                                      • add String.xml to build.settings

                                        Allow user to enter a field in build.settings

                                        example:
                                        strings = {["google_app_id"] = "app id"}

                                        This is need for any firebase stuff.
                                        I keep getting this error:

                                        GoogleService failed to initialize, status: 10, Missing google app id value from from string resources with name google_app_id.

                                        This would allow be great for storing secure strings (like rest key) in string.xml
