Intel gave developers an early Christmas present with the release of update to the XDK, its HTML5 app development environment for creating cross-platform apps for app stores and devices.
The December update brought several new features (particularly for Android developers), supported only on mobile devices running Android version 4 or higher.
• Remote debugging: A new “Debug” tab for testing and debugging Web and hybrid apps, enabled via a new on-device “App Analyzer” app downloaded from the Intel XDK. The remote debugger sets code breakpoints, inspects variables, and single-steps through source code.
The XDK runs on Android, Chrome, iOS, OS X, and Windows 7 and 8.
