This new version adds additional flexibility, and fixes several issues that users have reported, and is now the standard MIT App Inventor 2 Windows Tools Installer. Starting now, users who follow the getting started instructions for Windows will obtain version 2.3.0.
The new tools make few user-visible changes. If App Inventor is currently working for you with Windows, you need not install the new version. (Leave well enough alone.)Changes for version 2.3.0:
Important: Users who installed the previous version of the Windows setup tools v2.2 and earlier to a custom install directory must uninstall those tools manually, by going to the custom location and deleting the AppInventor directory. At this point you can go ahead and run the new installer program following the directions specified.
Users should always make sure they have a backup of their data before installing any new software.
In general version 2.3 fixes bugs, allows for more control over installation and improves the user experience. As always please let us know if you find any issues or have any questions installing these new tools. By posting a message on the MIT App Inventor Forum.
