New features

Dynamic App Authenticity

This iFix introduces a new implementation of Application Authenticity. This implementation does not require the offline mfp-app-authenticity tool for generating the .authenticity_data file. Instead, you can enable or disable Application Authenticity from the MobileFirst console. For more information see Configuring Application Authenticity.

Important: Android, iOS, Windows, Xamarin, Web & Cordova applications built with iFix 8.0.0.00-20170216-202020 will require a minimum server version of 8.0.0.00-20170216-202020. If you’re using an older version of the server, please upgrade your server by downloading the latest build from FixCentral or from the Downloads page.

If you are using Mobile Foundation on IBM Bluemix, please Re-create the server with the updated version.

Note: The server behavior during Re-create would vary depending on the plan selected. Refer to the Mobile Foundation documentation for more information.
