New watchOS SDK Now Available

If you are one of our customers (and if you are not, what are you waiting for?), you know the Lightstreamer company is customer driven. Whenever a customer requests a new feature, we do all we can to comply.

So, when a customer asked us if we had a watchOS Client Library on the roadmap, during Fall 2017, we scheduled it for Q1 2018. Now, we are happy to announce it is available and ready for integration in your WatchKit extensions.

The new watchOS SDK derives from the iOS SDK version 4.0.0 and retains the same version number. It includes all the APIs and features of the iOS SDK, with the single exception of WebSocket support (due to limitations of the watchOS platform).

Let's dig into some examples.

Note: if you need download and example pointers, jump directly to the end of the post ("Get the SDK").

Cloud License Manager

We are very thrilled to announce a brand new license verification mechanism for the Lightstreamer Server. Lightstreamer 7, due very soon, will support the Cloud License Manager (CLM). With CLM, licensing happens online, with no more need for license files bound to the MAC address of the hosting machine, with a tremendous increase in flexibility.

Switching to the New Lightstreamer 7 Editions

For the last few years, Lightstreamer has been organized into four different editions, which got their names from Italian musical tempo terms, namely Moderato, Allegro, Presto, and Vivace. Now, with the upcoming release of Lightstreamer 7, the editions are going to change, to offer maximum flexibility to our customers.

In this post, we will explain how the old editions map onto the new ones for existing customers.
