6.2 Bixby Developer Studio Updates

Preview Tabs

With this release, capsule files are previewed within a single tab instead of separate tabs. When you double-click or start to work within that tab, the tab becomes a normal tab, and a new one opens if you open another file. This allows you to open and view more files within Bixby Studio without cluttering your workspace.

You know when you are previewing a tab by the "eye" icon in the tab, which will disappear once the tab becomes a permanent tab:

Capsule Validation

Bixby now validates capsules when you open them. Here's an example of a corresponding error:

Sync Limit for Capsules

You are now limited to syncing five capsules. You can continue to add capsules, but Bixby will only sync the first five. You have the option of selecting any five capsules that you add.

Simulator Options Now Match Capsule Targets

When you change your capsule target, such as bixby-mobile-en-US, the Simulator now automatically provides matching device types and selects the first one.

For example, the spaceResorts capsule below has targets that support mobile devices:


The resulting options for the Simulator now match that target:


6.2 Toggle for Showing Imported Library Executions in the Debug Console

Within the Debug Console, you can now toggle whether the Debug Console considers imported library capsule executions when showing the execution graph.

Bixby IDE is now Bixby Developer Studio!

We've updated the name for what was previously called the Bixby IDE. It's now called Bixby Developer Studio, or Bixby Studio in short form.

Bixby Studio now supports auto-complete when using shorthand (using the : child selector)

Submission Restrictions Update

You can no longer submit capsules unless you have the necessary permissions (you are a team member and a capsule collaborator). Bixby will also prevent you from submitting capsules that have special namespaces.

For more information on capsule permissions, read more about Managing Capsules in the Using the Developer Console documentation.

New Theme

We're excited to unveil a new theme that gives Bixby Developer Studio a fresh, new look. It comes with a new welcome tab (also available through the About Bixby Studio menu option) that gives you shortcuts and links to help you get started with Bixby. We hope you like it!
