Taboola iOS SDK changelog

[2.8.2] - 2020-11-04

Fixed:

  • Fixed a rare crash in "API via SDK"
  • Fixed a bug in Feed/Widget via Native where the publisher's ScrollView tag was overridden by the SDK
  • Fixed a rare crash "NSKeyValueObservation" crash when calling "deinit"

[2.8.1] - 2020-09-22

Fixed:

  • Fixed an issue that added an executable resource to the Carthage binary
  • Restored the "bitcode" option when working with the Carthage binary

[2.8.0] - 2020-09-08

Added:

  • Added support for Apple's iOS 14 "AppTrackingTransparency" framework, that is fetching the IDFA according to the new guidelines

Improved:

  • Below the engine hood work to improve the way we set code-level feature flags using the setExtraProperties function
  • Removed old Apple's deprecated functions from the code

[2.7.1] - 2020-08-12

Improved:

  • We made significant improvements in the way we detect and report viewability (when the user sees Taboola); upgrading to this version may result in changes on the "visibility rate" figure in "Interaction Funnel" section in Backstage

Fixed:

  • Fixed a crash that caused Feed/Widget via JS integrations to sometimes crash in iOS 10.x

[2.6.2] - 2020-06-25

Fixed:

  • Well, it so happens that our iOS SDK had a code comment with the string of "UIWebView"... On April 30th, Apple started to reject new apps that are using UIWebView. When we say "using" it means also code comments with the string of "UIWebView"... We're now fixing it by removing this elusive code comment from TaboolaView.h.

  • Fixed an issue that caused "executable" warnings when trying to upload a project to the App Store when using the Taboola iOS SDK 2.6.0
