  • iOS 5 Update for Libstatusbar Released


    With a wave of applications now becoming iOS 5 compatible, such as PreferenceLoader, Activator, CleverPin, and others, it will be an awesome first day on iOS 5's public release since so many of the most staple applications to the jailbreak community are being updated. Once again, tonight is another significant step in terms of compatibility because Paul Griffin (@phoenixdev) just tweeted out that he released an iOS 5 update for libstatusbar.



    Now you may be wondering, what is libstatusbar? Libstatusbar is the small yet extremely important package that allows applications to show icons in the status bar. So when you think of applications like iBlacklist, biteSMS, OpenNotifier, and others like that, they all depend on libstatusbar to run (or I should say function to their fullest potential). As an example, when you receive a call that you blocked within iBlacklist, a phone icon will appear on your status bar alerting you that a phone call was blocked.

    Now that libstatusbar is public, applications that require or use status bar icons to their advantage can now start to be updated since the developers now have public access to libstatusbar.

    It's been a successful couple days for developers as they are working hard to get their packages ready for iOS 5 - let's see the trend continue!

    Sidenote: Paul also released an update for Bolt which is a free tweak that changes your battery icon on your status bar to a lightning bolt. It is also compatible with iOS 5 now (as mentioned in the tweet). Go check it out!

      CallBar 0.6 is being pushed today (just a heads up). It adds support for iOS 5 as well as Skype/Viber functionality. We didn't jump all the way 1.0 this time because we wanted to make sure people could use CallBar on iOS 5 when it releases today. =D
