Chinese Version 中文版： Cocos Code IDE 1.1.0：集成ARM DS-5，高效调试C++
As an important product of the Cocos Developer Platform, Cocos Code IDE has finally brought to us its version 1.1.0：integrating with ARM DS-5 and enabling efficient C++ debugging. In this new version, Cocos Code IDE has possessed authorization from ARM® to issue ARM Development Studio 5（DSTM-5）Community Edition, aiming at further smoothening the development process and enhancing user experience.
DS-5 is a powerful tool chain that has integrated many ARM-exclusive features into Eclipse platform; based on Eclipse development environment, DS-5 offers superior window management, project management and C/C++ source code editing tools, and supports C++ developing and debugging on Android devices.
In version 1.1.0, granted by ARM, Cocos Code IDE is motivated to offer great help and convenience to developers by providing DS-5 Community Edition for free.
At the moment, ARM DS-5 Community Edition has been perfectly integrated into Cocos Code IDE as well as its cool feature of C++ code debugging on Android device, meaning that you can debug game logic written with script languages or C++ in the same environment. At the same time, DS-5 provides a C++ development environment for Cocos Code IDE, so that developers can now develop some key or sensitive logic with C++, and then compile, pack and debug on Android devices.
DS-5 Community Edition tool kit, based on Professional Edition, provides necessary debugging and system analysis to create reliable and highly optimized applications for devices based on ARM processor without complexity and inefficiency that are often found on the scattered open source tools. With DS-5, Cocos Code IDE is equipped with a powerful C++ code debugging on Android platform feature, supporting debugging on Android devices based on ARM9/ARM11 and Cortex®-A（ARMv7-A）processor architecture. The efficient debugging of C++ logics will greatly accelerate the Android application development process.
Android platform performance analysis is another highlight of Cocos Code IDE 1.1.0. Developers just need to click “Start Capturing” in the data view of ARM Streamline to collect information of the target for analysis and click “Stop” to check the Performance Analysis Report when the analysis is finished. Simple GPU / CPU functional analysis will list out the key information like the most time-consuming code segments, the most time-consuming function lists, etc. lowering the burden of GPU/CPU and uplifting the user experience.
The world of mobile Internet is changing dramatically every day, and so is the mobile development technology. Cocos Code IDE focuses on script game development based on Cocos2d-x engine, and is motivated to enable a smoother and faster development process and a better development experience; Cocos Code IDE also actively embraces opportunities to combine advanced features from others to help developers gain a favorable position in this rapidly changing market.
