Version 1.4.0 has arrived

Version 1.4.0 of Hydra widget platform (PRO) is now available from Nokia Store! Besides the improvements for packaged Firefox OS applications described in my previous text, it introduces a very significant usability boost by changing the default device-pixel-ratio from 1 to 1.5. In practice this means that all applications are by default scaled by a factor of 1.5 to compensate for the high pixel density of N9. This makes all the touchable areas such as buttons much more pleasant to use.

In case you find an application that does not work well with the new UI magnification, it can be turned off (per app) from settings using the Hydra manager (see screenshot below). Version 1.4.0 also adds support for viewport meta element, which can be used by applications to dynamically customize and/or override the visible viewport and scale factor.

New widget settings view introduced in version 1.4.0.
